for your info … i found a little tool that converts old (& new) MMD3-files really ok!
the only problem is … this tool is written for the AMIGA … but it run’s with WinUAE …
the tool is named MED2XM and it’s a simple CLI tool
it converts the notes and song-structure & differnt patternlength 1:1
except the limitations:
It can’t convert a module that has
- more than 32 channels (this is the XM limit)
- patterns that have more than 128 lines (same reason)
- instruments with hold or decay
- synthetic or hybrid instruments
- MIDI instruments
- multiple songs
- too many simultaneous commands (it tries to use the FT2 volume column
hm … it’s not a perfect solution … (the 128 lines-limit sucks) … but better than nothing or the MODplug tracker
must correct something … after a few tests … MED2XM converts pattern longer than 128 lines … and Renoise loads this XM correct!!!
but it seems that there is renoise bug … 256 line produces an error … (only 1 line is visible in Renoise!!!)
thanks for the tip, but unfortunately all my old MED-modules have MIDI-instruments and decay so I guess this wont work for all of my old med-songs… hehe…
ok twilik … i never used banks/presets > only midi-channel / volume … so it’s simple for me to re-edit the instr. settings … but decay & note-offs - not so good i know
as I already said: not perfect …
I’ll check it out and see how good results I can get
I think it’s funny that some people’s signatures are bigger than their posts!
Unfortunately the limit in renoise as of now is ff = 255 lines…
I think it’s pretty amusing that his post is lower than yours, even though he has a huge signature
Okay this was far out … sorry for spamming, i just had too. hehe
i know, i know … ff > starting with 0 = 256 (start counting with 1) … but it seems that’s a bug in xm-loading in Renoise ?? … i know the xm-limit is normaly 128 … but … don’t know … any coder interessted in a test xm-file with a pattern-length of FF???
just one hint for med2xm users:
transpose all your midi-instruments within octamed some octaves down. med2xm seems to mess up with octaves above 8. sometimes they get cliped.
Either you did a typo (then ignore this post) or you didn’t read my post good enough.
The renoise limit is 255, not 256.
stupid? perhaps. I guess it was made that way because of gui space… but taktik has signaled that longer patterns will be possible later. perhaps even remove the length limit altogether.
Yes, this is of course fixed and was simply stupid. The current internal builds has a patternlines limit of 512. (Yes 512 and not 511 : ).
