Isn't that the last file you opened doesn't exist anymore ? (or renamed folder)
At launch FM Composer will try to re-open the last file, except if you unchecked the option in the Settings page
There was no last saved file (clean installation), but now it doesn't happen anymore. I will let you know if I encounter the behaviour again under unclear circumstances.

Depends on what you mean by 'clean install'. If you had a previous installed version on the same computer it *may* be a previously opened file even if you did a new install in another folder, since all versions use the same path for persistent data and settings :

(your system drive letter):/ProgramData/fmcomposer/config.ini

Anyway, the popup shouldn't show up again since FM Composer removes it from the history if it doesn't exist anymore :)

Opening the new version gives me a warning on every startup that some file cannot be found. Apart from that, the CPU load definitely went down.

Strange, program works fine for me, no problems here.
For the best quality, please select the uncompressed option, preferably with the FLAC codec.

I'm bumping this to report a regression. In version 1.6, the CPU usage is hitting very high values (around 26%CPU time) on both pattern and pianoroll tabs. The rest doesn't seem to exhibit the problem.

Sad to see that site die in the arse! Seems to be the norm around the world these days with many things. At least i downloaded all the files before it did get the arse!

it was a great tool!

What's more weird is the fact it was a FOSS piece of code and its GitHub seems to have evaporated too

Luckily someone forked it sometime last year: https://github.com/Marukyu/fmcomposer
This might be missing some of the latest commits but it's better than being completely lost.

Edit: There is also a fork of that fork (lol) which includes both the modifications of that fork as well as some later commits from the original repository: https://github.com/BobDeng1974/fmcomposer
I made a fork of that fork as well, just in case.

The website is back, including the download of version 1.7. Official source repository is still gone, though.
