I'm finally updating the documentation. Some OpenAL examples missing, but it's taking so much time to complete 'em all, that I think we'll release it without BCB, Visual Basic, BlitzMax and C examples so far.

I'm going to release a more detailed version of this document later (including ADPCM stuff and stripped XM specific issues).

Well, it is finally available for download:
http://sourceforge.net/project/showfiles.php?group_id=158498&package_id=234625&release_id=514394

Abstract:
Code:
This specification describes the structure of regular
FastTracker II, ADPCM-compressed and Stripped XM files.
It is unofficial because uFMOD doesn’t hold the
authorship or copyright of the XM file format. There
are many extensions to the original XM format available
nowadays, e.g.: ADPCM-compressed XM, OggVorbis-copressed
XM, Stripped XM and others. Most XM files ain’t 100%
compliant with the original standard because of
accidental or intentional modifications. So, it’s hardly
possible to think about a universal XM standard any
more. Since the original specification is pretty much
outdated and it doesn’t cover the already mentioned
extensions, the uFMOD development team desided to make
this new document available to public domain.
    


It is a Word document.

What .XM tracker is recommended these days? Skale?

Also, what DOS .XM player is the most accurate (excluding FT2)? Open Cubic Player?

EDIT: DOS fans, you can read Word docs via VIEW, CatDoc, or AntiWord (I tested all three on this doc, and they all work well).

I don't track music (lacking the proper skills...) So, I only use trackers for testing. ModPlug currently being my favorite.

Dunno

I still havn't gotten that deep into the format yet, but is there a way to use ADPCM (i'm assuming wave adpcm) files as instruments?

An instrument is a set of samples under a common header. Every sample contains a packed PCM wave. Delta and ADPCM packing currently supported. There are at least 2 other packing schemes not supported in uFMOD: OggVorbis and callback. So, yes, in theory you can convert an ADPCM wave into an instrument. ModPlug Tracker can do that (go to samples -> import -> selec a wav file). I'm not sure whether it converts ADPCM waves into delta waves (for compatibility with other trackers) or leave them ADPCM-packed though...

Well, along with midi, i was always left under the impression that you'd have to modify the player itself to do that. I've always had trouble sorting out the terms because i don't know if sample means the actual tune you're trying to use or if it's the instruments or what. Ever since i saw the format, i came to desire a seaquenced format that allowed you to record sounds and play those sounds as instruments.

An XM sample is a bit more than a PCM wave. It has some additional attribues: looping data (loop start, loop length, loop type, etc.), volume and panning envelopes, keymap, among others. If you just import a WAV file to use as a self-containded instrument in an XM track, it whould be more like a MIDI instrument.

Can you upload the XM library here.

I mean just attach it here with a post. Because sourceforge is an overkill
for slow internet connections like mine. And you said that it's very small
in size, so it can be posted here.

Please.

The library is small (~10Kb), but the redistributable package is large (~300Kb) because it includes many examples, documentation and tools. You can also download it from wasm.ru (http://www.wasm.ru/srclist.php?list=4) It is a bit out of date though. Don't know if there are any other mirrors.

I'd host it temporaraly for him, but i only see the win32 download. THough i can't promise decent bandwidth. I can only promise what my slow home cable connection can.

EDIT: I still say that example file will get stuck in your head if you play it for 5 minuites.

EDIT2: I haven't checked in earlier posts on this thread, but can it co-exist with other things like FMOD?

Click "Select a different platform? Windows, Linux, Unix/BSD". SF download page autodetects your OS and directs your browser to the corresponding OS download.

SofT MANiAC made like 5 versions of that tune. Maybe it's about time to change it.

Sure.

Done. Check the first post. It's a light FASM-only version.
