Is there a beta-version of MT3 somewhere or is it yet to come?

Hello, I haven't logged in here in YEARS, maybe 10 years ago!? Glad I still remember my forum password, heh.

Other than Sourceforge, there is also SOME activity at https://github.com/MadTracker-FOSS/MadTracker3 . When I say "SOME", it's a little more recent activity than at Sourceforge, but still nothing to get excited about.

Granted, from what I read over there, coding it seems to be a can of worms, so I have no reason to hold my breath for MT3 to come out as a working beta release any time soon, much less a stable release.

Personally I don't use MT2 anymore or any other type of tracker. I had used it more as a performance tool rather than making music hooked up to a MIDI controller. If I'm bored I will play someone else's MT2 song, that's about as much as I will use it.

I had been dabbling in OpenMPT a few years ago, but not really that much. MPT has more ongoing support than MadTracker.

In my opinion, it would be just better if you continue to get the most out of MT2 v2.61.

That's my 2 cents. Bye... for now. Smile

Here we are. You are not alone in this.

what you mean about "support" ? Its better to avoid the big corporations. We use the old programs and if needed, then retro computers too.

would be better to stick on the working configuration as it is and develop the software not for new, but for old platform and architecture instead. There is really no point about those 64-bit ones.

well, I am developing here the ISA bus soundcard for example. So there would be much more beneficial if the programs would be for DOS which can use the multitrack cards.

At the end this way we get the control over OUR software, OUR hardware (since soundcards we make ourself).
