Straight from the collaborative efforts of h0ffman and Akira comes the PT-1210 MK1 Amiga Protracker Module Turntable Player. Huh?
It looks like the new MOD remix/playback software for your overpriced Amiga computer is almost complete. A year plus in the making, this new software allows you to play back desired four-channel MOD files with full BPM/Pitch/loop functionality. The caveat?
Us Octamed users will not be able to import .MED or Octamed four-channel .MOD files. It looks like we’ll have to continue faking it at live shows. **Edit** It looks like Octamed files might work now. That doesn’t mean you shouldn’t continue to fake your live sets.
Here’s a new demo of PT-1210 in action, via Kikencorp’s YouTube channel:
The release date is set for the Revision demoparty in March 2014 and a playable demo will be available at Datastorm 2014, 14-16 February 2014, Gotheborg, Sweden. It’s a good time to be a protracker enthusiast. Now if only someone can whip up an Arexx script for Octamed SoundStudio.
**edit** Why bother reading here when you can now get the full breakdown at Create Digital Music? http://createdigitalmusic.com/2013/12/amiga-back-djing-two-cdj-style-turntables-will-amaze-friends/
