Help and Questions / Re: Is there a way to add more...

From what I remember this is problematic even for mptm (see here, not entirely impossible in a new format, but would require a significant rewrite, it seems, so, still not in the foreseeable future).

As for mod, it's a legacy format, and mods created with OpenMPT are supposed to be compatible with the original software (which, in case of mod, goes all the way back to Amiga), so, for anything other than mptm it's a definitive no.

To my knowledge, no, but I hope we can in the future. (btw very cool concept)

Is there a way to add more than a single effect row in the MOD format? (Using my "insane" photoshopping skiils, I was able to fake it)

I'm sure you've all heard of Lo-Fi... well this is... Lo-Effort, I'm such a lazy tracker (think that's word I was looking for?) I seem to be going through a 'can't be bothered' phase.

If it sounds pointed, that's because it is, but not at anyone here.

It only worked in 32 bit ompt without jumping but that was with flexasio on 100 latency which was the standard configuration. It blew my mind.

Can you maybe run FlexASIO with logging enabled (see https://github.com/dechamps/FlexASIO?tab=readme-ov-file#logging) and show that logfile for your working configuration? I would be somewhat interested in what set of parameters it is really using.

I will give it a try, i increased the latency to 500 and the period to 200 i think which was still giving some popping and clicking.
I want to add, i dont think it is modplug to blame. The vsts i chose fo this particular tune seem to be on the verge of crashing ompt at the drop of the hat. As i said it is an old tune i was trying to bring back from the grave and obviously at that time they either worked better or i liked living on the edge or something has happened tha makes them run worse on modern hardware or soemthing.

I fully didnt expect anything to make the track play properly. So kablooey mind i guess.

These are lessons i am learning about using midi devices in ompt. Even though the pedal was on on my keyboard practically the whole time it made columns of notes.... something i might talk about on the issue tracker. The saving was down to my dumb ass... and i fully accept that.

Oh yes i switch it off because it saves too many... but yeah maybe i should have it on and see if there is settings. Lets just say, if that setting is something you switch off... then save when you can. I wasnt complaining. Losing work is a part of life... and no i dont know why the pedal wasnt doing its job... the pedal was working fine on the keyboard, suspending the sounds great. I had modplug barely audible in the background so idk why ompt was literally making columns of notes instead of applying logical code for the suspend, but that was just the reality of it.

FlexASIO appears to be built on top of PortAudio, which is literally the same audio backend that OpenMPT uses for most of its audio device handling, so it's a bit surprising that you find it to be working better. It does appear to use DirectSound by default, which OpenMPT does not enable, but I cannot quite imagine how DirectSound would perform better on your system (assuming similar settings) than the MME or WASAPI options in OpenMPT. Extreme latency settings are rarely a solution to anything. What's more important is playing around with the Period setting - does increasing that help with MME or WASAPI?

Quoteand keep saving as you fix up the code
I would just like to point out that OpenMPT has an autosave feature which many people either are not aware of or actively disable and then always complain afterwards if they lost any progress. Compared to most other trackers, it's practically impossible to lose more than a few minutes of work in OpenMPT in its default configuration. If you are extra paranoid, you can increase the autosave interval to every 1-2 minutes and increase the history size to 10 files or so.

Quote*I wish ompt would - when the sustain pedal is being held down, try its best with the room it has been given, to give each note one channel no matter how closely together they are input - but that is something I will need to talk about on the issue tracker.
OpenMPT already supports sustain pedal MIDI messages. Are you saying that they are not working at all for you?
