Software News : HivelyTracker 1.5 is OUT!

Software News

HivelyTracker is a tracker program based upon the AHX format created in the mid '90s by Dexter and Pink of Abyss.
The format was relatively popular, and many songs were created and used in scene productions and games.
AHX was designed to create a very SID-like sound on the Amiga.

HivelyTracker can import and export modules and instruments in the AHX format, but it also improves on AHX
in several ways and therefore has its own instrument and module formats.

Today, version 1.5 was released for OS4, and OS3.x! The AROS port will follow shortly.
Click here to download it!

HivelyTracker offers the following features over AHX:

* Multichannel (4 to 16 channels)
* Per-channel stereo panning
* Two commands per note instead of one
* Ring modulation
* A more feature rich editor

HivelyTracker was coded by Xeron/IRIS
GUI design and skins by Spot/Up Rough
OS3.x and AROS ports by BuZz
The included tunes were created by Xeron/IRIS, Varthall/Up Rough and Oxide/Sonik

Changes since 1.4:

- A parameter in the undo system was declared as a signed byte instead
of a signed word, which meant that some song parameters got corrupted
when they went over 127. Editing songs over 127 positions long was
buggered, for example. Can't believe i didn't spot this until now :(
- Added Protracker mod import. Just like the one in AHX, it simply strips
out all PT commands that are not equivalent to AHX ones, and all
instruments are set to a simple tone, so you'll still have a lot of
work to do to make it sound nice.
- Added a size optimisation feature. It removes all unused instruments,
and duplicate tracks. If you click with the right mousebutton, it'll
additionally try and use the transpose column to remove tracks which
are the same but transposed. However it doesn't know if sounds
continue after the newly transposed track so you may have to manually
fix any problems with that afterwards. Both modes keep the original
version and open a new tab with the optimise version so you won't
lose your work if it messes up. Both modes also use track 0 as the
empty track as AHX and HVL both make smaller files if that is the
case, however, if there are no empty tracks in the module, it won't
keep track 0 blank unnecessarily.
- Added a new command! When "EF1" is placed on or after the last note
in a track, the "transpose" value for that channel will be preserved
until another note is played in the channel. This overrides the
default AHX/HVL behaviour, which is to switch to the next transpose
value as soon as the next position is reached.
- '=' now does row preview, like enter does in protracker
- '-' now toggles horizontal advance in the position editor
- Added "posedadvance", "notejump" and "inotejump" fields to the
ht.prefs file. They don't show up in the prefs window, though, so
you have to edit them manually (run hively 1.5 and quit it to make
them show up in the file). "posedadvance" is either 0 or 1. When set
to 0, horizontal advance is disabled by default.
"defnotejump" is 0 to 9, and sets the default notejump in the pattern
editor. "definotejump" is the same for the instrument editor.
