Wow. This is really a complete sound programming language. I have to try it out.
It will be a little nicer to use in the next release when HMCC is done, since then you can do straight notes instead of frequencies like:
using triangle_powpow ; specify instrument used for the following
as4 40 ; note on for triangle powpow instrument, a-sharp in 4th octave, wait 40/60ths of a second
rest 20 ; note off + rest for 20/60ths of a second
But of course, things can always be exported from Sage's tracker.
I liked working with HSPL when I was finishing up Zaku, but the driver was so heavy on both memory and CPU. There was also no stereo support out of the box and you could not use integrate mode on instruments, only SFX. It was also very easy to get the driver to mess up and change the music waveforms with those of a recently played SFX.
So this driver was designed to replace HSPL completely in my current project. Also be a little more friendly to use from the game side, and not require an Amiga.
Update! Find it at the usual place
Thanks very much! The tracker support is always appreciated
