Hi all!

 

Is it possible to render/generate sounds or tracks to a sample-file that would work in Protracker (I'm using a Mac-clone version) ?

That is resample + convert to 8bit.

 

Are there any Mac plugins/hacks?

 

Thanks a loot :-)

Are you asking for a tool or method to do this specifically within Renoise itself, or just a general app or utility that you could use?

Renoise can save the sample out at the bit depth and sample rate used by Protracker, but that didn't work for me when I emulated it in WinUAE (though it might for you, depending on how the Mac-clone works). I had convert the sample to an IFF file using Audacity.

I'd probably use sox ( http://sox.sourceforge.net/ ) from the command line to spit out a IFF sample (or raw format), something like:

# sox sample.wav -e signed-integer -b 8 -r 16574 -c 1 sample.8svx

Also, might be worth looking into -> Xrns2Mod

Why not use bubsy's PT clone? It loads wav, and is otherwise a very faithful reproduction of the original software.

Save the instrument, extract the files, open them in OpenMPT and save as a .mod, .xm, .s3m or whatever. Think that should work?

Thanks, but I'm on Mac.

Using that one already - but it downsamples x 2 when I load WAV-samples.

Both. But a tool directly in Renoise / Mac would be the easiest for me :-)
