Life Amp

LifeAmp is a Winamp plugin for playing modules - MOD, XM, S3M, IT. Modules are played using MIDI and SoundFonts on SBLive! and APS hardware. Therefore this plugin uses hardware mixing.
Also the latest version features module to .MID/.SF2 converter.

Life Amp is based on a Life engine, which is created with a long-range goal in mind: to implement MIDI&SoundFont-based tracker.

Features: Plays XM, MOD, S3M, IT modules thru MIDI/SoundFonts interface. Emulates volume/panning/pitch envelopes, portamento, sample offset, vibrato, surround panning, etc.
Disk writer feature allows to convert modules to SF2/MIDI files.

Requirements: Windows 95/98/Me/2000, Winamp, SBLive!, APS or SB PCI512, LiveWare or APSLive! drivers installed. Usage with Windows NT 4.0/2000 is not recommended.

Usage of APSLive! drivers is highly recommended.

Brad Stowers' DFS TSystemTreeView, RX-Lib and KOL are needed to compile. It's a MIDI tracker sources really, LifeAmp being just a playback engine front-end.

"Life debug panel" is an application I wrote to debug life library-based programs. Try it if you'd like to see internal representation of modules in LifeAmp (patterns running on the screen), or if you want to see how life library can handle MIDI files. It is could also be used as the not-so-cool-as-Winamp player. LifeAmp or Winamp is not needed to run it.
