Reading this link, which i believe has been mentioned earlier, is really sad news..

His health is getting worse, and nothing can be done. I want MED SoundStudio for Amiga to be saved. This is the best tracker program for the Amiga and it would be a deep tradigy if a new Amiga version of this tracker never sees the light of day..

Here is the link: The Death Of MED SoundStudio For Amiga?

If anyone can take over this project and help the man behind Bars'N'Pipes, then it will be much appreciated by the whole Amiga community!

Please, save the fate of MED SoundStudio for the Amiga!

Why do you think it is the best tracker?

Or rather, it WAS the best tracker program for the Amiga. Before DigiBooster 2 came.

its simple/easy to use & tooo nice not to kill now....

Why dont he OpenSource the Amiga version so community can work on it.

i think it was the best tracker for amiga back than & we have few new ones now but i still love to see octamed back to community.

Yes, a very simple implementation though.

@All

Like several said, it was one of the easiest, most flexible tracker programs that were made for the Amiga. It was one of the most unique trackers that allowed the Amiga to use 8-channel right out of the Paula soundchip, despite only being a 4-channel 8-bit
audio chip.

MED SoundStudio 1.03c was made to be able to use all 64 independent channels on the Amiga, if you had the most powerful Amiga out there and a decent soundcard. It also introduced a new feature for the Paula soundchip, to use 14-bit audio quality which
worked very well..

To port this to AmigaOS 4.1 to use full PPC-technology and full AHI/CAMD-support and
more up-to-date features, will bring this tracker back to the frontline again...

Most people will feel "home" with this tracker. Many reasons why it has to be saved..

octamed is an important tracker. many big names in the drum n bass scene used it. some still do, and i know some that used it up until 2004. =)
don't let it die!

If the program can go Open Source in the Amiga community, then there is a lot of hope. It HAS to be saved! The tracker is too important and has been used by many Amiga musicans..

My first tracker was actually Noisetracker 1.2, then SoundTracker 2.x, followed by Protracker 2.3d and the 3.x series. I tried using MED4 at around the same time as PT2.3, but honestly I preferred PT (aside from the jumping man in MED which was fun for a bit).

When PT4 failed to materialise after some early work and the source was released, I got myself a copy of MED6 and OMSS V1, and I must admit I did enjoy using OMSS.

However in the last decade of little development on the OMSS front, several other trackers have surpassed it in every way. You have the opensource "MilkyTracker" which has an OS4 port - and by all accounts it is a really good tracker which lacks VST support found in other trackers such as ReNoise and SkaleTracker (the latter again which seems to have stalled in development a few years back after a really promising start).

I even have a port of MilkyTracker running on my phone - complete with touchscreen interfacing - which is honestly pretty neat

Even Protracker 5 has died off by the looks of things (another shame as that was coming along nicely too). I'd love to see OMSS developed further, but the way things are going, I really don't see this happening any time soon.

I'm crossing my fingers that trackers like this will be saved. It has too...

Nobody's going to kill it NOW. The last version for Amiga was released in 1996 so you can't even say OMSS has been on life support since then. It's dead as a parrot, and has been for years. At least three different developers failed to pick up the 13-year-old heap of code: I guess that speaks about something, doesn't it?

Home, eh? I guess. I used it way back when. The instruments were easy to select and there were many of them. My one complaint was that it would not trivially do 10 piano notes at a time. Sooo, I looked around for a replacement, but then got caught up in other projects, always waiting until an Amiga program came along that could do as well as I witnessed was possible with expensive ($400) software on a PC. So it never happened.

I have tried out MilkyTracker. It is not a "breath of fresh air" that is for sure. It felt like work AND *I* couldn't get it to do things. I was always losing work. Doing revisions actually meant starting over.

I heard a wonderfully done piano work that was claimed to be a product of HDREC, so I started in doing that before I discovered that HDREC is the foundation, but an unavailable plugin was used for that well done piano piece. I never could get HDREC to do anything close to what I wanted, though the method of getting your notes down was pleasurable (compared to MilkyTracker).

And here I sit. Yes... I was very much hoping I would be able to "go home" to an improved MED Studio for my Amiga.

I used to work in OSS with my HW synths and it was a great tracker, and it had support for TRIPLE PLAY PLUSS midi interface wich was great for adding more midi channels. Thanks to Kjetil K. for all his work on camd wich made support for more midi in's and out's possible and his great Radium midi sequencer

But OSS is still a suberb tracker, i'd love to have a update

And how and what would you save?

the old version? There is online. no problem.

a new version?

Alfred are ill. what MED need are a complete new development team.

Gerd Frank/APC&TCP? Ray broken the contracts with us. i see no way at the moment.

Open Source? Ray never make MED Open Source. that are 100%.

This was the difference for me.

Is there any tracker for OS4 that has MIDI?
