If we are on that topic, how about add an import/export for fruity loops? :nuts:

Uuuuh, is it "impossible to implement" feature wish day today? ;D  That is even less likely to be implemented, doing a proper score from tracked music is simply way too complex. Going through MIDI and then using some external software would be way better.

Yes, indeed, I know 2MIDI quite well, I used to use it when working on Nintendo DS games, years ago.

Then, one more question : I remember "Octamed", the old Amiga MIDI tracker I was using for videogames like "Fade to Black" or "Moto Racer", during the 90's, provided real score display (as a Sibelius, for instance).

I think it could be very usefull to have the same thing on OpenMPT, for chosen selected track(s) and/or chosen instruments, even with the possibility to print it, instead of midi perfect export...

First off, it's called 2MIDI, not XM2MID, and it happily accepts S3M/IT too. Second, yes, it's not a MIDI editor, but OpenMPT is also not a wave editor and still allows to export your modules to WAV - puzzling, huh? *
On a more serious note, MIDI export has dozens of things which can be improved, but none of them are a priority for me, so don't expect any improvements on this field to happen unless someone else is up for it. What you could try, though, is looking if there are VST plugins out there which act as a MIDI recorder. There are WAV recorders (which simply bounce the audio that's fed into the plugin to a WAV file), so I'd be surprised if a similar thing didn't exist for MIDI. That way, you'd get a much more accurate result than OpenMPT's MIDI export can provide, and since it would still work when using OpenMPT's WAV export, you could export it instrument by instrument automatically (and then just delete the generated WAV files).

* The "problematic" kind of users are those who use to load OpenMPT to "convert it to MP3", or who load a MIDI in OpenMPT, modify it and then save it again as MIDI. Exporting your module as a MIDI file, on the other hand, has many legitimate reasons. One of them could be providing stems to other producers for remixing your song.

OpenMPT is not a midi editor. To export to midi, save as xm, and use a tool such as xm2mid to convert the song.

Would be nice to be able to export a song to .mid (to be able to provide score for live musicians/orchestra conductor) with the ability to do it "instrument by instrument" (in addition to "track by track" by muting unwanted ones)

Thus, export wouldn't merge notes from same tracks, as it already does, BUT only from a same selected instrument in a track.

Not sure I'm clear enough :-D

Not exactly my style, but I guess it's good for what it is - feels a bit empty at times, though.

I wish i could have provided the mptm format for people to look at, but unfortunately there was a plugin in there that costed money so i wouldn't actually be able to provide for those who didn't have it.
That's not a valid reason for not providing the module. ;) I've done it before as well, so that people who'd like to look at the module can still look at it - and those who own the plugin can hear it in its full glory as well.

Help and Questions / Re: An question abut Envelope Carry.

maxbe XMPlay accidently used the SB driver example
No, it most definitely is not "by accident". XMPlay used to follow the SB driver's behaviour consistently (which makes sense, since the WAV writer is no the canocial way of listening to modules, especially since the stereo WAV writer was not free), until it was "fixed" to use the WAV writer behaviour for the filter envelope for playing a module made in Schism Tracker correctly. I think it's been inconsistent since then, but since both behaviours are fine, there's nothing really wrong about that, I think. Just don't use NNA = Note Cut with envelope carry and you're on the safe side.

No need to bother about it, since you explained clearly how XMPlay and Impulse Tracker behave with this Envelope Carry (maybe XMPlay accidently used the SB driver example).
And about the digging up one, i have tested it on alot of IT modules and the behavior is normal (playback in XMPlay and OpenMPT is the same).
If i find something strange, i'll mention it later.

Well, then you will have to dig up an example to have a look at, otherwise I cannot determine whether OpenMPT does it right or not.
