I found the DBPro 2 replaying routines, but I am not very knowledgeable in M68k assembler (and assembler in general), and since the important parts of the code that I looked to were not documented at all, I was asking here since clearly someone else should know much better what the code is doing.
Is there any documentation on how 4xx exactly works in DBPro? The vibrato depth seems to be approximately half of the depth of PT-compatible vibrato, but not quite. Also, related to my efforts here, is there a way to get a registered DBPro 2.21 version for player developers for free? Obviously I am ...
Cannot confirm. I did compare normal MOD playback and DBPro 2.21 (unregistered) output and it did sound identical. The only difference is at a tick speed of 1, where no portamento happens in MOD at all, but in DBPro it is executed.
Well, is there any documentation about how they work exactly then?
Edit: After some quick comparisons, 1xx and 2xx appear to work the same as in MOD, just 3xx is different. 3xx is apparently applied on every tick, while in MOD it's only applied on all ticks but the first.
So, after finally getting DBPro 2.21 to run in an emulator, I can definitely say that portamentos are apparently working slightly different from ProTracker and similar. Otherwise I can't explain the differences that I hear when listening to that section described above in OpenMPT / xmp compared to D...
This tune was made ten years ago, though, and the file header says it was made with DB2.21. So something must have already been different from MOD/XM in DB2. I'm more intersted in playing things like DB2 would play them, since that's what the majority of DBM files was made with, obviously. Easiest w...
By the way, is it possible that portamento effects are working slightly different from how they are known in MOD/XM? Consider this tune ... I have an MP3 recording of it (since I can't get DigiBooster to run in WinUAE, I can't verify it myself), in which you can clearly hear three distinct notes in ...
Regarding the panning, I was talking about "2 bytes Instrument panning (−128 = full left, +128 = full right)." - is this also -128...128 in version 2? I'm just wondering because the panning envelopes were also XM-compatible, so I wondered if the same is true for default instrument panning. In fact i...
I need some clarification on the format, as some parts are rather ambiguous or are treated differently by existing loaders. First, regarding the instrument panning, is it supposed to be an int16? MilkyTracker and OpenMPT treat it like an uint8, although they treat a value of 0 as "do not force panni...
