General Chatter / FM Composer, a tracker with integrated FM synthesizer
« Last post by phanoo on February 19, 2018, 22:23:39 »
Hi there

I just wanted to share with you my new software. I'm a big fan of OpenMPT, I use it since 10+ years when it was still called Modplug Tracker... so yeah, I'm very familiar with trackers :)
As a developer, I always wanted to create my own. I though it would be fun not to use samples, but FM synthesis instead. I like the way it sounds when well programmed, and I find FM more inspiring than plain samples. If you don't know what FM is, it's Frequency Modulation, a way to generate sounds, like the Sega Genesis did, and some Yamaha synths from the 80's (which had a lot of influence over the 80's music). Now it's used mostly for electro stuff.

Anyway, I started to build this software in C and C++, and after a lot of work I'm proud to release this first version, the "finished product" :) It's got a 6-operator FM engine with 24 voice polyphony, a user-friendly GUI for creating sounds, and more.
It's open-source and free, so if you'd like to give it a try.. I'd be really pleased :)

Check this little tune made with it : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bT__3KI3Lt4

I'd be infinitely grateful if my software find some users :) Any feedback appreciated !

General Chatter / Re: Pop-rock debut album conceived with Mod Plug Tracker

Not exactly my style, but cool effort!

Hahahaaha you can't imagine how many people has said "Not my style" since I published the album hahahahahaa  ;D ;D ;D

Thanks for the comment though ;)

I'm now producing the second album. For the second album I've composed all of the songs entirely with Mod Plug Tracker. For the production by now I'm using Reaper.

Thanks for responses. Both the mailing list link and emails seems to work now and while I'm indeed a subscriber in the list and preferred it to RSS-feed as I've gotten used to getting the more detailed commit summary (not that the details are too often actually examined), it's not a point to be taken into account if evaluating the need to keep the mailing list.

Makes sense, although I'm more a fan of the push notification style of mailing lists for the commits (of course you could also just query the RSS feed every minute, but it's a waste of bandwidth especially when on a limited mobile connection). The point about the security mailing list is definitely valid.

Seems to be in the process of recovering and sending out old mails right now.

In any case, given the unreliability of SourceForge, I think we should stop promoting the list (as well as the libopenmpt security mailing list). We can still leave both running as is for the foreseeable future.
Any objections?

Especially for the libopenmpt security announcement list, the unreliable mail transfer of SourceForge is in fact a huge problem, as it might prevent people from seeing the necessary announcements. Our RSS feeds have no such problems, because in case of service unavailability, RSS subscribers could at least get notified by the RSS reader software.

Interesting, there used to be quite a few more (around 10?) subscribers to that list a few years back. Maybe that changed because of the availability of the RSS feed.

OpenMPT 1.28 and libopenmpt 0.4 removed platform support

This post will be updated and clarified as needed. For each update, a short reply summarizing the update will be made in order to notify topic subscribers.

For the general motivation, please refer to the detailed explanation at OpenMPT 1.27 and libopenmpt 0.3.0 remove support for old Windows and Wine systems and old C++ compilers

OpenMPT 1.28 will remove support for the following platforms:

libopenmpt 0.4 will remove support for the following platforms:

We are additionally probably removing support for:

We are additionally considering (unlikely as of now) removing support for:
  • GCC 4.8, GCC 4.9; thereby removing support for Debian 8
  • Visual Studio 2015



This post will be updated and clarified as needed. For each update, a short reply summarizing the update will be made in order to notify topic subscribers.

The list is hosted on SourceForge. SourceForge is yet again completely broken since quite some days. There is absolutely nothing we can do about it right now, other than wait.

However, given that this list only has 4 subscribers (Saga Musix, myself, and apparently you, the 4th is unknown because SourceForge does not allow listing mailing list subscribers any more), we could probably consider just killing it for good. Given the reliability of SourceForge in the recent years, it's use as a notification mechanism is very close to none.

The RSS feed https://source.openmpt.org/browse/openmpt/trunk/OpenMPT/?op=rss&isdir=1 exists (though that might actually change once we migrate to the new server), and following changes on GitHub via our mirror is also possible: https://github.com/OpenMPT/openmpt/commits/master.atom.

If you (or anyone else) still prefers to get the notifications via mail, I could just add any one developer who desires so to the list of email addresses that get mailed the SVN changes directly without going through the SourceForge-hosted mailing list.

Development Corner / Status of 'modplug-svn-commit'-mailing list
« Last post by Relabsoluness on February 18, 2018, 14:48:54 »
The latest mailing from modplug-svn-commit I've received is from 2018-02-15 rev 9671, but in RSS-feed's the latest rev is 9705. Is this a temporary malfunction or has the mailing list been silenced for good? The link in wiki page Development: Compiling the code gives "A 500 Error has Occurred" and the list is not visible in Sourceforge's Mailing Lists page.
