Converting AHX/THX modules

Postby joska » Wed Jul 10, 2019 12:57 pm

Does any of the Falcon trackers/softsynths have the ability to import Amiga AHX/THX softsynth modules?

Never heard of any Falcon tracker with AHX compatibility.

Thanks. I expected that answer, but was hoping that some obscure tracker I've never heard about could save me some work :)

You want to make a music disk with some Pink tunes (among others)? ;)

there is possibility to replay ahx/thx modules with Cream Jam plugin.. You have to load it somewhere, relocate and interface is straightforward (I've made one long ago).. There is possibility to use dsp and cpu plugins..

No, I'm not looking for a replayer. But I found this cool AHX tune that I wanted to try to improve using a more capable softsynth like ACE Tracker. I could always convert it manually.

Thanks, I did not know that there was an AHX player for Ataris :) It does not solve this particular problem, but it could be usable for later projects.

Had to have a quick look at it, and found this in the docs:

Read the plugin-api, delivered with this package, to get informations on how to include your own plugin into 'Jam'.


But I could not find any API docs in the archive. Looked in both the CPU and DSP archive. Do you happen to have this documentation or know where to find it?

Edit: Never mind, google found your article about the Jam plugin API :)

Don't hold your breath :D I'm no musician, so the "improved" version will most likely never be released. It's just for fun.

Just tested Jam, and unfortunately it crashes on almost half of the AHX modules I tested :(

I did a video time ago for show MagiC and meanwhile I loaded some modules in JAM!. In minute: 1:42 I load an AHX mod without problens. So, seems it works.

Yes, most modules are working. The problem seems to be with modules that are composed in Hivelytracker and exported in AHX format.
