.I will probably get back here to find some folks to test the player, since I don't have the hardware (any emulator existing anywhere??).

A question : Some people also refer to a SID chip, but I don't find anything about it in the documentation. Is it something the Spectrum Next has? However, Arkos Tracker will not target this, as this is not really the aim of this tracker.

Thanks and see you soon,
Targhan/Arkos.
Hi. If you look in the WIKI it lists the emulators.

The SID chip was dropped, so it is the 3 AY Chips (9 channels) and I believe spec drum

Hi all,

I am currently adapting my players to the various hardware Arkos Tracker 2 can handle (Spectrum, MSX, etc.). I have made a 9-channel player for Spectrum Next. I have not the hardware, and I don't know how to make sure my code works. My 6-channel TurboSound works (I have tested it with UnrealSpeccy), so I'm pretty sure my 9-channel player also works, but I want to be sure before delivery :).

Could someone with the real hardware can PM me? I'll send him a SNA of the player with a 9-channel song. Thanks!

Targhan/Arkos.

Well, I had no answer, but was able to validate my 6 and 9-channel players thanks to the Zesarux emulator (thanks to its Cesar for his kind support!) and CSPECT. The next version of Arkos Tracker will include these players.

I've posted an update on my music editor/player in the Showcase section for those who missed the post.
