MultiPlayer first appeared in 1991.
In it's 17 month development period it has had numerous amendments, up to and including the final v1.32.
Work ceased on MultiPlayer in 1992.
With it's XMOD, AMOD and GMOD formats, it was the first to pioneer a method that would later become know as the Custom format on DeliTracker.
Probably the only player in existence to support sequenced IFF-8SVX samples, as created by Audiomaster III or greater.
(Taken from the MultiPlayer documentation)
MultiPlayer currently supports the following module types: -
|15-instrument SoundTracker modules||(most anyway)|
|31-instrument SoundTracker /
NoiseTracker 1.3D modules
|Protracker 1.0-1.1B modules|
|SoundTracker 2.6 modules|
|NoiseTracker 1.3D packed modules||(with or without the embedded player)|
|NoisePacker 2.01 modules|
|Digital Sound Studio modules|
|StarTrekker 1.2 AM/FM modules||(Extra '.NT' file required)|
|MED 3.00-3.21 and OctaMED /
OctaMED Pro modules
|Modules (MMD0, MMD1) only - not "Song&Samples" files.|
|Oktalyzer 4- and 8-channel modules||Uses my own 8-channel play engine. 8-channel modules will be slightly higher quality on a 68020+ processor.|
|SoundFX V1.3 executable modules (Player V2.2)||Will probably ONLY work with this version, since it does some run-time patching to make it play under MultiPlayer.|
|Future Composer 1.3 ('SMOD') and 1.4 ('FC14') modules|
|JamCrackerPro 1.0a modules|
|SoundMonitor 2.0 modules|
|SidMon 2.1 modules|
|Delta Music modules||(two versions)|
|Mark II modules|
|Dave Whittaker modules|
|Face The Music modules||(DO NOT COMPRESS!)|
This is very kludgy at best - you must have "PlayFTM:" ASSIGNed to the PlayFTM program file. (Didn't know you could ASSIGN to a file? Now you do!) The procedure involves loading the module, the external player, and then the module again. Ack!
|Generic embedded-player modules||that start with something like|
(Such as NoiseTracker 1.3 packed w/player modules)
|AudioMaster III sequenced 8SVX sounds||(mono only)|
|'XMOD', 'AMOD', and 'GMOD' formats|
Sadly, MultiPlayer pre-dates DeliTracker, and doesn't support external players.
