Arkos Tracker V2.0.0a4 released! (01/11/18) Finally! After 5 months of work, here is it. It includes some cool features, such as: Breaking changes: - The Z80 assembler target now Rasm (by Roudoudou). Minimum effort are needed to convert them to SJasmPlus though. This was required to implement the player configuration feature (see below) in a better way. Please check the "players" page on the website to find tricks on how to use it on any assembler. New features: - Copy/cut/paste in the Pattern Viewer. - Added a contextual menu in the Pattern Viewer. - Changes in the keyboard shortcuts in the Pattern Viewer (transpose, octave, instrument, solo, mute, etc.). - Added an Arpeggio Generator in the Pattern Viewer. Enter notes, select them, right-click and generate an arpeggio from them! - UI changes: - Changed the location of the Meters, now besides the Linker. More space! - Changed the layout of some pop-ups to make them more small-screen friendly. - Player configuration: - "Player configuration" source files can be created when exporting songs or sound effects. Using such files, the players only compile what the songs require (CPU and memory gain!). - Done for AKG and its sound effect player. - Done for Lightweight and its sound effect player. - Done for AKY (Z80 version only, "normal" version (accurate/stable not done)). - Song optimizer: on export, the Songs are more optimized (will introduce "clean song" options in the UI in later releases). - Added a Vortex Tracker 2 import (.VT2/.txt). - Added a Chip'n'Sfx import (.CHP). - YM Analyser tool: load and play YMs, extract sounds from them. - YM are now exported with digidrums. - Atari ST: - The AKY Player has been converted to 68000 for Atari ST, by GGN. A huge thanks to him! - Added an option in the AKY export to encode all label references relative to the beginning of the song (useful for Atari ST players). - Sample export: - Added a fade out option to prevent clicks, for non-looping sounds. It can go to 0 of to the middle value. - The padding value can also be 0, or the middle value. - Added an option to export only the necessary length. - Source profile: - Added a mnemonic for strings. Bug fixes: - Corrected a big bug when inserting/deleting an item in Speed/Event Tracks (the wrong track could be changed). - Corrected a source compilation problem when exporting samples in AKG format (thanks Hicks). - Corrected a bug making the "export samples" dialog disabled, if in AKG/RAW export, export samples was off. - Corrected a bug with the "source to Orgams" Python converter (thanks Hicks). - Improved/corrected how the Retrig in instruments is exported (AKG, Lightweight, sound effects). - Corrected a small UI bug about the selection when collapsing tracks. - Corrected how the PSGs are addressed on SpecNext (stereo wrongly applied) (thanks Emook). - Limited the export binary to 4 digits (#ffff) max. Handled correctly out-of-bounds assembling.
