posted by sand

Итак, все вы (надеюсь) уже успели посмотреть видео, в котором демонстрируется новая возможность Fast Tracker'a - сброс огибающей и тона. Этот финт давно используют музыканты с Atari ST и Amstrad CPC. Чтож, пришло время и нашим парням с ZX-Spectrum попробовать этот трик.

Ура! Представляем для Вас долгожданный релиз новой версии одного из лучших трэкеров на Zx-Spectrum.

   FAST TRACKER 1.07  

В данной версии трэкера вы увидите дополнения, которые были направленны на упрощение редактирования музыки, да и вообще для общего улучшения редактора. Например insert/cut строки, copy/paste каналов, сэмплов, орнаментов. Наконец-то добавлена транспозиция, соло-режим, быстрое перемещение по паттерну и т.д. и т.п.

Исправлены глюки, в том числе и фатальные. Три из них в компиляторе. О всех нововведениях и исправлениях вы можете прочитать в файле changes.txt из архива. Help, а так же  наборы сэмплов и орнаментов прилагаются :)

posted by TecSoft

GenTape is an utility for developers. It creates TAP, TZX and WAV files from binary files. The idea is that you use this utility if you want to release a new game, because with the same command line you can create 3 differents formats.

It supports 7 types of TZX blocks (from ID 10 to ID 15 and ID 20). By now the instructions are in Spanish, but the brief command line help is in English and its easy to understand.

The last version is here.

ZX7 Tool Updated

posted by TecSoft

"ZX7" by Einar Saukas is an optimal LZ77/LZSS data compressor for all platforms, including the ZX-Spectrum.

Available implementations of standard LZ77/LZSS compression algorithm use either a "greedy" or "flexible parsing" strategy, that cannot always guarantee the best possible encoding. In comparison, "ZX7" provides a highly efficient compression algorithm that always generate perfectly optimal LZ77/LZSS encoding. Technically it means compressing within space and time O(n) only.
