@megapixel : I'd use https://16-bits.org/pt2.php for Protracker and https://16-bits.org/ft2.php for FT2 playback. Those are 1:1 conversions of the original programs.

Nice! :tu:
Check out OpenMPT also, but it can get the playback time wrong at times...

Here are some of my old Amiga assets (mod/med files, covers, and 2 of my very own (mp3) /cringe):

Going from Amiga Octamed to Windows Octamed in 1999 though was a massive leap forward. I had musicmaker.org back then and the octamed guys supplied me with the windows version for free for a review on the site and I cooked that tune up. The other tune was something I cooked up to kill the mood in a school eisteddfod, everyone else was singing hymns and dancing and shit, I played that at max volume with my Amiga hooked up to the PA and via my own system on stage :phones: (I think the speed is screwed up on it, the export is far from correct, way too fast, that or I got old :hihi: )

Since there's a wind from the past here, I'd like to ask if there's an OctaMed/SoundTracker/Protracker player on Windows that can natively decompress .mod.pp (Powerpacker) files?
Or is there some - possibly free - tool in Windows like 7zip that can handle this .pp format?

Thanks,
Mario

I'm not sure, but I think you can open the mod/med files in OpenMPT and export the samples.

It seems to accept my mod.bladerunner-humppa.pp and mod.acid sniffer.pp easily :)

Thanks, but I also have Octamed modules and I'm afraid this Protracker clone won't be able to load them.

:tu: Its what I use for my octamed tracks and the YouTube videos on page 1 or 2 of this thread. But glad it works. Just watch its tempo, it sometimes gets it wrong.
