The major work on this section was supplied by Steven Innell, Christian Stieber and Heikki Kantola from 1994-1997. The 1998 updated information was completed by Steve Gilmore and Hugh Hulme. All of the following players can be found on aminet in mus/play/ (see 6.1).
Because of the confusion surrounding Aminet at the time of updating, I checked the main Aminet site in Germany, and that seems to be fine. Lots and lots of players and peripherals here, but I noticed that the accent now seems to rest with MP3 players :-) Nonetheless, there are still plenty of trackers/editors/players here so it's worth the browse. Unfortunately, and as normal, no Amiga user wanted to assist us in the FAQ updating, so if you want to review and comment on the Amiga players in more depth, please contact me. All of the following players can be found on aminet FTP in mus/play/ (see 6.1) or at the main website address at
"All of the following players are proper applications, i.e. they use windows and don't hack the hardware (except for the sound hardware). All of the following players use external players to allow for an unlimited number of formats (provided that somebody writes a player). All of the following players support Pro/Noise/ SoundTracker, ScreamTracker, FastTracker. I believe that most of the players support MultiTracker and TakeTracker as well (DeliTracker certainly does)".I can't vouch for the accuracy of the above statement, which was part of the original FAQ. As I mentioned above, I do not use an Amiga so it's more than a little difficult for me to make any authorative comments. I'd really love for an Amiga user to get involved (hint, hint)
This politely (huh?) multitasking program will play all popular sound program modules available on the amiga. Currently it supports over 120 (!) different module formats plus one special format for modules which contain their own player. ProTracker and PT-like players are internal; additional players are loaded from disk. That means you can very easily add/update players by placing them into the DeliPlayers directory.
Shareware: the requested shareware fee is $US 20 or 20 DM. Registered users will be shipped a disk with the latest release version of DeliTracker.
While I was rooting around in this directory I also noticed what I presumed to be the next generation of this player 2.01. This is what Aminet had to say on the subject:
Shareware, USD $20

There are several DAS Player peripheral files on Aminet, but the player itself seems to be absent. I suggest you root around in there anyway, maybe you'll find something else. Be aware though that the last files posted there on this subject are dated between 1994 and 1996. I suspect the player is still active somewhere, but - short of dragging every Aminet directory - not for poor ol' me...
These players were found there...(yaaaaahhhh!)
Once again, sorry for the sparseness of the information but where are all the Amiga users? As always with Aminet it's generally worth a major browse... Exasperated with the search for Amiga users, I went looking for myself. I've used the MushyPD site a couple of times because I had previously found some very good Amiga IFF/SVX samples there. The MushyPD site is athttp://www.mushy-pd.demon.co.uk
and it had these players available in Feb 1998:
Archie server: archie.luth.se
all verified 2 Mar 98 (there are several others (.it, .fr, .pl, .net, .se)
all verified 2 Mar 98
none yet verified
So there ya go, obviously having an Amiga-head working on this section would yield some better results, but there is certainly enough references here for you to start finding some of the players mentioned. Archie is still a good (if slightly techie) search method, so by all means use it. A complete tutorial by jester can be found in the appendices of this FAQ. Any links you come up with could then be emailed to me for inclusion in this section. With full marks to you of course! Instant fame, what more could you want?
