Intro.
Dump is short for "Denna Urtrista Module Player" which makes it the worst name ever for a program on the Atari Falcon platform.

The program is, as the name suggest a module player. It have a couple of features that make it stand out from the crowd of other moduleplayers.

Work has mainly been made to keep dump as small as possible and has been programmed entirely in assembler.

 

Dump features.

  • Plays 4/6/8ch .mod files created with a long number of different music programs.
  • Compatible with all known accelerators (Falcon FX, Nemesis, Centurbo I/II...)
  • Using the DSPMOD player so you won't notice much, if any slowdown.
  • Memory efficiant ASCII interface, which works from MiNT virtual consoles. The only DSP based player that does as far as I know.
  • Switchable (in realtime) surround sound
  • Switchable (in realtime) interpolation of the sound
  • Sourcecode included.

 

Dump does not feature.

  • Big clumpsy GEM interface
  • Big clumpsy C libraries
  • Bugs ( ;-] )
