What does the 'framespeed' setting do ?

How do you use it ?

I changed it, but there is no audible difference.

@mstram: Daily programming job? No, not at all, I'm just a self-taught hobbyist programmer, but I've been doing it for quite some years now. I havent' got luck to have a coder job without degree (i'm just a technician), but it doesn't matter now as my life took a big turn some months ago. My hobby is now programming the 6510, much more times than the x86. :) And I experienced with FPGA too lately... :)

As a Kraut I'd say: there's really no problem with H or B from my side. You can call it what you want. Everyone who learned a little about music at school knows about this anyway. For a C64 tracker I even expect H instead of B and # instead of b all the time, just because it makes no sense to expect a music theory detection by a tracker when to write # or when to write b. Even though I had music teachers that insisted that one half-tone up from A isn't the same thing as one half-tone down from "H/B"... To me: it's the same tone =) By all means I'd say: <3 and thanks to Hermit for that great tracker! =)

"H is what we use in Hungary (and in some other countries maybe)."
isnt it H in central europe, and B in UK/USA ? (its certainly H in germany... if you want to be international, why not call them do re mi fa so la ti do? =D)

Heh, well at least you only changed *one* note. :)

Gotta say, your program is very slick and polished !

Is programming your day job ? (not 6502 probably ;) )

H is what we use in Hungary (and in some other countries maybe). I decided for H in previous versions because B is really confusing for us Hungarian as we call A# note as "B" here while it refers to "H" abroad instead. H cannot be mixed with anything furtunately, but it might be confusing for people who got used to B...
In SDI they solved by asking about it (whether you want H/B) when the program starts. It will be 'B' in the upcoming SID-Wizard version as it's more consistent that way, and SW is a cross-country product after all. :)

Having never used a tracker before, I thought this program was very cryptic at first.

Heh, until I tried most of the *other* trackers !

One question: why the 'H' for the B notes ?

News: Maybe a bit C64 related ;)
I needed to create MIDI-files again, so I decided to code a tracker for myself (till now I used Tutka).


MIDItrk was done in less than 2 weeks, so I guess there's still much room to improve. Its look & handling resembles to SID-Wizard very much. No 'bpm'-based tempo yet just 50Hz timing. There are many key-shortcuts, mouse is supported as well...based on the great SDL library, works on Linux and Windows. (Can be compiled on OSX too)...
The example tune is Jeoren Tel's Robocop3 title music, of course :)

btw, SID-Wizard development is on its way too...

This tracker is great! Thank you so much for making and continuing to improve it! I can't wait for the 2SID version. I'd rather have 2SID than MIDI (although MIDI would be nice too eventually). ;)

Thanks :)
In return: I like your tune "Resurgence" very much, it's very musical, and one of the few 4x speed SW tunes.

Thanks for the nice comments. Cadaver, your words as the author of GT mean a lot for me, thx...
Answer to Scout: In the TODO.txt I noted down recently to maybe give support for existing MIDI hardware...If it will leave enough memory and rastertime for the editor it's achievable.

I second Stainless.

About the future MIDI implementation, the manual mentions the HerMidi interface.
Could it be possible to add 'standard' Midi interface compatibility, like the interfaces who use the cartridge port (Passport, JMS etc)?

I tried an older version SID Wizard last week for tunes and sound fx for Sheepoid DX. Very professional composer. :)

Not so much added feature for the tracker itself, instead fixes/improvements for all the executables, and new tunes added. See manuals for more info. Hungarian manual added into the bundle.
And the sng-to-swm converter is also working now.
Finalizing HermIRES is postponed for next version so this version is clean from the (maybe unnecessary for some people) MIDI-handling code...
