hardware OS4   hardware OS4 : Hively Tracker 1.0 by Iris and Up Rough released for AmigaOS 4.0
   posted by spotUP on 8-Dec-2006 14:19:53 (3491 reads)
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. Hively Tracker is released for AmigaOS 4.0 only.




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.

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
The included tunes were created by Xeron/IRIS, Varthall/Up Rough and Oxide/Sonik

REALLY NICE!



P.S. But I've just got a Guru Meditation:

"ahx2006 Player Task"

RedZone not damaged
Stack in the bounds

Any idea?

It happens mainly when I close a tab...

Hmm.. nope. Can't reproduce that here. I tried opening a load of tabs, and closing them, closing tabs while music was playing... no crashes at all here.

Fantastic - OS4 tracker!

Before I dust off the A1, can anyone tell me if it's MIDI compatible? (A la OctaMED)

Ahh.... bugger.

Still, looks like a nice piece of software all the same.

I'll give it a whirl next time the A1's running.

(would have tried it now if it had MIDI support)

Nice one. Now on to downloading and checking it out ;)

EDIT: Converted the png file and the program works. Looks fine and sounds nice.

I'd agree with you, but then we'd both be wrong.

There's ProTracker for that :)

There's a fundamental difference between AHX and MOD, in MODs instruments are stored as digitized audio samples, while in AHX they're synthesized and generated in real time. Thus an AHX file will be much smaller than a MOD file.

I'd love to see Hively tracker evolve into something like FruityLoops, which also uses the synthesized instruments, but has more sophisticated waveform generators.

@painter ans Spot
Its the Skins/SIDMonster-Heavy/itab_mid.png file,
clicking on it play a music file,
although its icon is a PNG.

I fixed by copying the file from the Light drawer and removing this file, HT then starts up!

P.S. Check you mail, ive sent u a little something!!

I just re-downloaded the HT archive, and loaded the "Skins/SIDMonster-Heavy/itab_mid.png" file into a hex editor, and its a straightforward PNG file. Also, I can run the tracker fine from that downloaded icon. I don't understand what the problem could be.

AHX (formerly THX on the classic Amiga) is a synthetic tracker. The instruments are generated in realtime (from SINE waves, SAW waves etc) much like those from the 8-bit machines (C64's SID being a prime example).

In this regard, AHX/THX/HivelyTracker is a lot more like those chiptune composers of the past such as SoundMon and FutureComposer 1.x, or even the Synthetic mode in MED/OctaMED.

Hively does look really nice though, and anyone familiar with AHX/THX will be right at home with this application.

Combination of things, including laziness. I recently swapped out my 15"CRT, which served both my A1 and WinXP box, for a 15" flat panel. Unfortunately, I forgot to adjust the resolution down to something the new monitor can display and haven't had the motivation to retrieve the CRT from the cupboard yet.

On top of that, I've started using Logic on my iBook and Reason on the PC more and more, meaning I have less reason to use HD-Rec. MIDI doesn't work with OctaMED under UAE on the A1 so.... until MED for Os4 comes out.....

Or another tracker with MIDI support.
