Any thoughts? I think it looks fine right now. At theses small sizes, it almost looks identical to the current icon. I could make the red color even lighter but it would make it differ more from the icon at bigger sizes. I'll leave that choice up to you guys.

I originally intended this to be compatible with SNESMod, but it doesn't support volume slides yet, so this is exported directly from OpenMPT.
I created most of these samples by recording single notes from free synth VSTs, as well as BaWaMI. The high-pitched Rhodes sample is ripped from a Chrono Trigger SPC ;)
I think the drums came from one of the demo songs included in a release of OpenMPT a few months ago, I remember I had just updated it when I started working on this.

Eventually, but don't ask me when that is going to be.

Will there ever be 'graphical-editor' for VSTs in OpenMPT? Like machines in Psycle (tracker)? Or machine view in Jeskola Buzz?

I'm curious though: What particular audio output problems do you experience when using the standard audio output methods in OpenMPT on Wine (and not using the native Wine integration features)? Which Wine version? Which distribution? What kind of audio setup on the Wine and side? Which OpenMPT output backend?
For me, picking the sound options always meant there was a trade-off between having decent latency and making sure the audio doesn't become crackly. Having even a slight delay when entering notes is annoying, but it was necessary because setting the latency/period too low meant getting the crackles and audio glitches. Sometimes there's also a glitch where the entire song will play back way too quickly and sound all crackly. This has happened across any version of OpenMPT on any version of Xubuntu in the past years.

I've encountered neither of these cases when using the native Wine driver so far, and there's no noticeable lag either. It's great.

Fair enough. Even though we have not been seeing any particular problems regarding sound output on any Ubuntu/Xubuntu version in the last couple of years - especially not when using the "WASAPI" output backend in OpenMPT.
However different systems behave differently, so we added the native Wine integration as another option for people like you who experience such problems.

Oh, sorry, I couldn't find that wiki article before, my bad!

I also have a request: compiling Wine support failed for me for a while until I specifically went to these forums to search for help, at which point I stumbled upon this thread. The thread contains invaluable information for those who want to get this to work, but none of this info is available in any of the standard help docs or during any step where the compilation/native support fails. It might be a good idea to put the instructions on the wiki and link to it straight from the application itself (as well as the terminal window) when things go wrong, just to point people in the right direction. A link to this thread for support might also be good!

Uhm, it's documented at https://wiki.openmpt.org/Manual:_Setup/Wine. I do not see right now what information would be missing from the wiki, short of the list of tested configurations, for which it links to this precise thread.
We do not link to the precise wiki/manual page from any other  UI element in OpenMPT, and I do not think we should special case this.
I guess I could add a link in the error message when compilation fails, though - precisely because this is an experimental feature and known to fail under a lot of circumstances.


Reactivated my forum account to come in here and say thank you very much for this feature! This makes OpenMPT so much more usable on my preferred OS.

Great to hear.
