Some formats for Delitracker are in DeliWizard which converts it to Protracker. That way one saves a little memory.
For all these formats i have Test-Tunes.
Custom is a SoundFormat which is a bit odd, but all are differently constructed. Mostly from games from 1987 to 1992. For this format there is no special player, instead the DeliCustom format is used.
A few Soundtracks are already reprogrammed for CustomPlayer.
- Cadaver 1991
- Hybris 1988
- International Karate Plus 1988
- Imploder 3 und 4 1989 bis 1991
- Insect's in Space 1990
- Lionheart 1990
- Black Lamp 1987
- Mahoney & Kaktus "His Masters Noice" ResetPart 1991
- Lemmings Sound's
There are a few more, but unfortunately i don't know the names.
It is possible for every good assembler programmer to construct his favourite tune for Customplay. Many good examples and includes is to be found in the Delitracker LHA package.
Maniac's of Noise
Maniacs of Noise were founded before the Amiga came in existance. Unfortunately I don't know how many active people there are at in the team at the moment, but i can mention two > Charles Deenen and Jeroen Tel. Maniacs of Noise produce(d) really good productions.
Who doesn't know the soundtracks from UNREAL or Flimbo's Quest? Insect's in Space, Lord's Of the Rings and the Synthetics Musicdisk 94. I can't write here all the tunes that was produced for the C=64, that would be 2 FULL A4 pages. Maniacs of noise have used many different player formats. On Amiga there are two, Noise&Protracker, and MON (M.O.N.).
The player for Delitracker is called M.O.N. Below i have listed a few Soundtracks that can be played with it. Unfortunately the format uses fixed Memory addresses. That makes it very hard.
Soundtracks : M.O.N. Format
- Chinese Chess - TitelTune
- Death Trap - HiScore
- Death Trap - Opening
- Dragon Wars - Combat
- Dragon Wars - EndTune
- Dragon Wars - Title Tune
- Dragon Wars - Ingame Tune
- Flimbo's Quest - 12 Ingame Sounds
- Habitual Novelty - Ingame
- Lord's Of Rings - Titeltune
- Maze Mania - TitelTune
- Mysterious World - Endtune
- Mysterious World - HighScore
- Mysterious World - Level 1-4
- Mysterious World - Loader
- Mysterious World - TitelTune
- Unreal - Fight
- Unreal - Dragon
- Unreal - ??
- Razor 1911 Best Of MON I II III
At the moment Maniacs of Noise produce music on Sega and Nintendo.
Delitracker V 3.0 the second
Further information about DELI... Frank Riffel have been forced to hold back the development, due to tests. Well, nothing is ready yet, but the next DeliTracker is distributed under BGUI. Should that at last produce an Enforcer-Hits free version ?!.
The first experiments are already started. Further infos about it will be in the next issue of DELINEWS.
In the Christmas version, the only really new thing is the Xmass GENIE. Further there is also a new version of the DeliWizard (v2.10 49 Format) in the Genies directory.
Jogeir Liljedahl is a genious musician. From him are already the following tunes released. He is familiar by all the conversions of old soundtracks that Rob Hubbard, Fred Gray, Ron Klaren, Stein Erik Giske, Laxity or Bug made in 1988 or 89 on the 64. What makes his products so good are the clean samples and harmonic atmospherical backgrounds.
Under the Label * Noiseless * are already the following tunes released:
- Atributet Horror
- Crystal Rain
- Face Another Day
- Face Another Day 2
- Full Moon END Part
- Guitare Slinger
- Gentle Winds
- Happy Hour
- Happy Levels
- Helmet Shake
- Heavy Thunder
- It's Noiseless
- Just Married!
- Living in a Dream
- Loader Tune
- Led Storm
- Love Theme
- Nearly There
- Oro Incenso
- Out of Silence
- Rambo Rules
- Slow Motion
- Syncronized Voices
- Tiny Tunes
- The Wanderer
Bonus soundtracks: "Shadow of the beast" Soundtracks 2-5.
32 Voices ?
Toccata and Sunrise AD16
Well, there are good soundcards for the amiga also, but unfortunately the prices for these cards are too high. Especially for the Sunrise AD16 almost 3000 DM). The toccata is a bit better with a price of 500DM, and I have seen it for 415DM as well. That puts it in the same price class as Gravis, and the sound quality is also almost the same. The only disadvantage is that the past Amiga soundcards are only constructed for Digital sound and has no synthetical instruments. The Soundblaster have 32 voices with synthetic sounds.
For Sunrise there is almost no software to use it with other programs. Therefor the included Harddiskstudio is really great.
For the toccata I found that the offered software is a bit too small. Samplitude, Mignon, Toccata-Audio.Device, Tocata Tools II. The best so far is that it is supported by Delitracker. Due to this the Amiga Sound channels are free for system beeps, or other sounds. The current cpu load is about 10% - 15% and 20% for tunes with 8 voices. The soundquality is very good.
There are a few other Soundcards from Brittish companies. Unfortunately they are not available in Germany YET.
What is new ?
From several sites it is reported that there is a new tracker in production, which uses 32 voices, 16 Bit samples, and the possibility to export tunes to the PC-Tracker. Unfortunately i haven't seen any version yet, should any of you find it, please upload it to the MAX BBS. But please not the Symphonie Tracker. THANKS

However as a whole I think you understand what I have written, if not I must take some courses in English :-)
