AdeptTracker V1.0
-----------------

To be short: AdeptTracker is a ProTracker clone written from scratch. The main
difference is that AdeptTracker is writen to use the system GUI instead of
customized graphics. The GUI looks like ProTracker and the keyboard shortcuts
should be (mostly) the same.

The main goal with AdeptTracker was to write a systemfriendly tracker. Every
bit of AdeptTracker is written in the programming language E (AmigaE) and with
some assembly code here and there to speed things up.

When I got the idea about writing a systemfriendly ProTracker clone I had no
experience with either the module (mod.) fileformat nor have I never programmed
the soundhardware of the Amiga before.

I imagined that the project would be quite complex and it surely was.
Everything including the replay routine is written from scratch by myself. The
only help I had was some documentation of the ProTracker fileformat and later I
got my hands on the RKRM (Rom Kernel Reference Manual) who explained some of
the soundhardware.

I also wrote my own DMA wait (100% safe) and also I "invented" a nifty display
routine to speed up the "scrolling" in AdeptTracker.

AdeptTracker is far from finished and should not be considered as a final
product. The main reason I have decided to release this version is for
archiving purposes only. AdeptTracker is as I se it rather unique since it's
the only system GUI application that tries to "copy" the ProTracker
userinterface (inspired by ProTracker V2.3a).

Feedback on this historic "gem" is welcome so don't hesitate to contact me:
