I just tried to run Impulse Tracker 2.14 under OSX with DOSBOX.
Works like a charm. IT finds a Gravis Ultrasound Card (ah, those were the days…) and is usable and makes sound and whatnot; just the sound latency is a bit long… but that might be changeable;
I already love Renoise under OSX, but now I even can access my old tunes without rebooting that old windows machine
Great programm which made me always gallous because it had the features I needed but I was too stupid to use it.
Does anyone know when the first version of IT (which year) came out?
And when did it have polyphonic channels and resonant filters already?
I googled a lot for it but couldn’t find any info. So if anyone knows a link, I’d be happy. On J.Lim’s site there’s no info about the date, just version numbers.
Well, the pic said 1995-98 which I assumed was when it was developed. And I wouldn’t really say Sound Tracker is a modern program. It was referring to the first Amiga tracker which was made 7 (?) years before. Design could have evolved a bit more since that time…
haha, even my gameboy has a bigger screen; man those resolution were top notch; running fast tracker 2 now usually gives me this weird feeling, too
the resonant filters patch was a xmas present for IT users, i think it came out either in 1997 or 1998, i’d guess 1998 as all my .it files which actually use filters are from 1999; but then again it might be that i just found them too late;
the filters appeared first on 21.12.1997 in IT2.14 Patch 3
ok, just for the heck of it, I created another screenshot, this time running several old trackers funny stuff; i just thought about creating a track where every tracker plays one instrument, oh well…
Hey, thanks a lot for the info, el Zeratulo! That was really a big help!
And a neat picture you gave us there. Interesting enough for me as a PC-user to see Renoise running on a Mac. I think I’ll also install DOSBox here.
Btw, el Zeratulo, have a little look into the tigc-thread, thanks.
Well I just had another try making FT2 run in Dosbox and this try I succeeded! But, to bad I couldn’t use higher than 8000 khz, or else it wouldn’t run smooth Anyone who knows any solution to this problem?
