Now you can track anytime anywhere, from the comfort of your N9! I ported this mostly because I could - the current user interface isn't exactly usable on the N9's small screen (but it does work!). However, this might improve in later versions.

If you aren't inclined to build your own modules, The Mod Archive has a massive collection of songs to download and play.

Read more about MilkyTracker at the official website.

TODO

  • Make Harmattan-style desktop icon
  • Enable low-res user interface and adjust for 852x480 res

I'll probably do so at some point, but I think the source package is going to need to be tweaked in order to meet the dependency requirements (grumble grumble).

kudos to INABT !

I tested it yesterday on n950 and it is somehow usable using the hw keyboaad
and it is currently building in shared repo home:rzr:harmattan

Do you plan to add new features ?

I wish we assign mod xm files to this app and use it as a player ...

also creating a qml ui would be a great chalenge , because It looks a not obvious to me ...

A QML-based tracker would be awesome, but that would be pretty much an entirely new project...you don't want to know how much code in MilkyTracker is dedicated to the UI.

I wasn't planning on adding major new features - just keeping this confined to a port - but I definitely need to fix up the size of the UI. MilkyTracker was ported to Windows Mobile (with 320x240 displays) a ways back, and that low-res UI should be able to be converted for use with the N9(50)'s display.

I need to look into how to do file associations - when I left the MIME type association in the .desktop file, the icon disappeared from the home screen, so clearly something wasn't being done right.

Thank you for this COOL port!

Maybe you just need to build a very small loader/player in QML. Load/Play/Stop buttons, and a progress bar based on the pattern number. You'd swipe (not from the edge) to change modes (trackermode to playmode). Or detect rotation with accelerometer and since tracker mode is always in landscape, have playermode be portrait.

Also needs volume control (if not possible from OS). [edit: is this program fixing itself? After I pulled the status bar and touched the volume control there while doing other things, when I went back to MilkyTracker the volume buttons stopped controlling the ring volume and started controlling the MilkyTracker volume...]

I have commented on the appsForMeego app. It seems the underrrun when the screen auto-locks has cleared, it's not happenning now. Maybe the meego-tracker service was scanning the MOD folder I had just copied.

Hard mode: have a small window in the playermode scroll the instrument names (all banks), sometimes there's NFO's there.

Epic mode: headphones mode for 4-track (Amiga) MODs. T1=50%L, T2= 25%L, T3=25%R, T4= 50%R.

God mode: playlist support...

@itsnotabigtruck:

I ported milkytracker to Fremantle and used the LOWRES interface. It makes it a lot easier to use on the small screen. I had to make a few modifications to make it work at the 800x480 resolution. Feel free to grab the sources in the repository:

http://maemo.org/packages/view/milkytracker/

Also, I set up a garage project, let me know if you want to use that at all.
