Really nice program, it really does merit the positives of OpenMPT itself and FM synthesis.

I don't think that's it's inappropriate to ask if you're going to support 4k natively? I have to use the DPI scaling hack in Windows 10 to make it appear on my screen in a readable fashion. Also, what sound chip are you emulating? It sounds quite clean!

I don't emulate an existing chip it's my own FM engine desgined from scratch. I read a lot about how Yamaha's FM chips works and how the software emulations were done. I re-used some of the ideas while adding some new ones. It sounds cleaner than a YM2612 for example, but still has some aliasing that you can notice in bass sounds. It's due to the oscillator waveforms that are pre-computed to save CPU. Each one has 2048 steps, while the YM2612 and most OPL-series use 1024 steps tables. I think Yamaha switched to 2048 for their SY-77/99 synths. You get cleaner sound with a slight bit of 'dirtyness' sometimes ! :)

For the 4K I'd like to support it, however I don't have a 4k monitor. I'd need some sort of 4k emulation on a full HD screen, but I have no idea if such a thing exists :o

It's not planned, but rather than adding more and more optional parameters of play_note(), I'd rather add extra functions that can manipulate any playing channel, e.g. channel_offset(int channel, int offset).
These kind of requests are better kept on our issue tracker by the way, as it's easier to keep track of requests and bug reports there.

Really nice program. But I also have some problem with cpu usage, its around 10% with no playing, funny that playing the demosong barely affect cpu usage. My cpu is core i7-4600u.

Hi developers,
I would like to have a way to play_note() at sample offset like the command 9XX or Oxx.

The current play_note API has (note, instrument, volume, panning) which is quite basic and does a good job.
On the other hand, the interactive API also included 'global effect' such as set_speed, set_tempo and 'per channel effect' such as set_channel_mute_status

what is the vision for the interactive API? will it keep on evolving to be fully functional for many commands or there is a limit of what it can do?

More active channels adds some computations but the sound engine is already quite optimized, FM requires more processing than sample playback.

I worked on the instrument page, it should be fine cpu-wise for the next version, and the program will use a bit less cpu in overall :)

No need to use PM, i don't consider this information secret :)
I'm running Windows 8.1 x64, with minimal set of background services on a notebook machine with this CPU and 6GB of DDR3 memory clocked at 1600MHz. It's a dual-GPU computer, with Intel HD Graphics 5500 and nVidia GeForce GT 920M, each with 1GB of dedicated memory, running at stock clock rates.

The CPU usage isn't anything strikingly high here, but there's still a room for improvement imho, especially in the idle state.
Here are my readings from Process Explorer:

pattern tab ~1.5-4%
piano roll ~1.5-4%
instruments ~3.88-5%
general ~1.16-3%

(it's probably gonna hit pretty high values during playback of modules with complex instruments and high channel count anyway, so i didn't bother measuring that)
