Since I've been experimenting with RMT (and loving it), it's time to peel away the onion and get deeper into the tracking / chiptune thing.  I've always been a "sound" guy - I play music, own synths, etc and often thought POKEY could be flexed more than it was (and we see this is now true).

 

Just downloaded MPT, which I believe allows native A8 track development.  I also wanted to play around with NeoTracker, but I can't seem to find it.  Does NeoTracker run natively on the A8 / XL / XE platforms?

 

Would like to give it a try - any help is appreciated!

Try version 1.8.

First of all try installer INS18.COM and configure XRAM banks and output device (POKEY/COVOX). It'll make NEO.COM you need to run tracker.

Load your music via cmd.exe:

xtmc.exe example.tmc

In the sources of Theta Music Composer 2.0 you can find an English documentation which can also be used with enotracker.

simply click the "wiki" link on github and there is complete list of keys and their functions... 

 

and note that in order to open file in enotracker, just run enotracker <file> ... or drag and drop music file to enotracker executable...
