Help and Questions / Re: MP3 export option is missing
« Last post by Saga Musix on Yesterday at 12:41:23 »
Also note that this is only the correct location for putting the codecs in OpenMPT 1.27, which will be released in a few days. For OpenMPT 1.26, the correct location is mentioned in the help file that ships with OpenMPT.

Help and Questions / Re: MP3 export option is missing
« Last post by manx on Yesterday at 08:46:18 »
I have the dll file but when I go to %APPDATA%\OpenMPT\Components\ regardless of 86 or 64 I get a "folder not found" error. I've checked the path myself and it goes through Users and Roaming.

Go to %APPDATA%\OpenMPT and create the Components and Components\x86 or Components\x64 folders yourself. Put the matching DLL into it.

I can't find the extentsion listed in saving and exporting. I have the dll file but when I go to %APPDATA%\OpenMPT\Components\ regardless of 86 or 64 I get a "folder not found" error. I've checked the path myself and it goes through Users and Roaming. Updated today. Is there a pathing bug that was missed? Is the wiki out of date? Please help.

Oh, no I meant more basically the music code of modplug, the stuff we make our songs out of :)
for example an old goodie (I use it often)

basic gating effects for your sample based instruments:

ModPlug Tracker MPT
|     v64D0A
|     v64D0A
|     v64...
|     v64D0A
copied and pasted directly from modplug, if you paste flood this over a string or other looping sample you will get a basic electronica gate you can customize to your liking.
each tick brings the vol to 64 first and then slides the volume down afterwards.
this is a trick many people might not know, and I am quite sure other people here have many more useful music coding hints than this.

I was thinking a place where people can just share modplug code they enjoyed making, but yeah just a suggestion, thinking of some way to encourage a little more community around the software.
Take it or leave it.

For example I noticed one of the tricks I use to build swell in my house tunes needs to be refined with the new modplug, quick volume slides have picked up a tick and a crackle when applied to bass
Volume ramping has not changed in quite a while but of course it's possibel that your ramp-in and ramp-out options have been changed.

Hey guys, would it be ok with you guys to make a subforum for discussing code?
You already posted in the subforum that is dedicated to anything related to the OpenMPT source code. If you meant talking about possible behaviour changes in OpenMPT, it's always the intention that legacy modules play the same way as they did in previous versions, so if playback changes considerably, a bug report or a post in the help forum would be enough.

Hmmm... now I am seeing that the crackle is only present on the preview in the instrument tab too... so this possibly is a bug after all.
I admit I wasnt sure, so sorry if I got it wrong. I will open a ticket. But I still think a subforum in which we discuss and specifically post code would be cool.

Nuances and tricks that we can share with eachother.
Also I have noticed many of my tricks have to change in specifics with the new modplug and since those kinds of things arent bugs but could be useful information to talk about I think a whole subforum here about it would be very useful for everyone.

For example I noticed one of the tricks I use to build swell in my house tunes needs to be refined with the new modplug, quick volume slides have picked up a tick and a crackle when applied to bass and so I have had to change my general method. I was using the instrument volume slide to get my timed swells but now I am going to need to refine the way I lay down the lines but until then I have noticed I get a good clean swell using the volume commands:

d03 on the hit
d09
c09
c09

Development Corner / Re: OpenMPT 1.27 release candidate available
« Last post by Saga Musix on September 22, 2017, 13:33:36 »
The 1.27 release is around the corner - if all goes well, it will be released within the next week. There have been a few last-minute changes related to file loading, and while our own tests have confirmed that everything is still working as intended, now would be a good time to download the latest development build from https://builds.openmpt.org/ and give it a try by loading the most obscure modules formats from your collection you can think of. ;)
