Quote from: "psishock"We could just stop the time with Impulse Tracker
Quote from: "Rxn"No, but we could stop the time with fasttracker interface.It was a very wise Olivier's decision to abandon the DIY interface approach in favour of the standard looking application rather than reinvent the wheel.There is really really no point in employing prehistorical interface design approach anymore.
QuoteYou are denying yourself with that statement, because you too are adding (slowly) new functions that will make OMPT better and more feature rich.
Quote from: "Rnx"No, but we could stop the time with fasttracker interface.I gave renoise a chance on a number of occasions but their reluctance toaccept that there has been some change in OS GUIs since the beginningof the nineties defeats the purpose of having a ton of bells and whistles.It was a very wise Olivier's decision to abandon the DIY interfaceapproach in favour of the standard looking application rather thanreinvent the wheel.There is really really no point in employing prehistorical interface design approach anymore.
QuoteBut if we look on it, the fact to be "compatible" with legacy formats is getting less and less important. People are usually working with the formats that is offering them the most functionality.
QuoteEven in the old times, trackers developers changed their formats, and invented a lot of different features that didnt allowed backward compatibility.
QuoteTake MOD and IT example: Can you load up MOD to IT compatible trackers? Sure. Can you load, saved IT files to only MOD compatible trackers?
QuoteWell, if one needs to work on MOD files, dont really give a damn about any of the fancy new features for starters, his totally fine with even the early versions of MPT as well.
