"MusicMaker V8" Version 3.0 ("MMV8") is a sample-based music editor I wrote 
from 1987 until 1993. It's not "just another tracker", it's instead based
on macros which apply to one channel only. These macros can be combined 
freely to form a song.

MMV8 includes a very powerful sample-editor and a sophisticated technique 
for providing eight channels (each capable of playing at different volume 
levels) on a standard Amiga. It was actually the very first program on the 
market back then with eight completely independent channels.

Samples can be packed using the Fibonacci compression algorithm, with
variable compression rates up to 50%.

As of OS 2.1, the user interface can be configured to either English 
or German.

SDK, sources for players and a few example tunes are included.

Version 3.0 had a lot of improvements. I also added the ability to 
save music data and samples into one module file.

How to install:

MM back then came on three disks. I kept this scheme when uploading it to
Aminet. Therefore, you need three archives:
MMV8_Disk_1.lha
MMV8_Disk_2.lha
MMV8_Disk_3.lha

[ATTN: Due to (questionable) copyright issues, the Aminet-archive of Disk 2 
is incomplete. It lacks some AmigaDOS files. See readme for Disk 2 for 
details. You can download the complete archive for Disk 2 from
https://www.dropbox.com/s/igmskde7u28nqof/MMV8_Disk_2.lha?dl=1
]

Either copy the files contained in the three archives each to a floppy, or 
in separate temp directories on your hard disk. Name the disks 
- "Install-MM3" (disk 1),
- "MMV8" (disk 2) and
- "MM_Instruments" (disk 3), 
or assign these names to the directories on the harddisk.

Then run "Install-MM" on Disk 1.

Minimum requirements:
- 1 MB memory
- OS 1.3

Revision 3.01 is a minor update. It only addresses the most annoying 
issues I identified when using the program 25 years later.
The archives now contain updated player libraries and EaglePlayers (the 
latter the same as in version 5.01 of "EP_MMV8" on Aminet), and the 
installer script now explains errors that might occur when the installer 
is unable to add assign commands to the startup-sequence. 
Also the following changes were made:
- MM: Fix ignored disabled macros in MacEd in 8-channel-mode
- MM: Default to doing nothing instead of Overwriting in Tracks
- MM: Watch all (not just CustEd) channels play if interlace screen is
  available.
- mmv88.library: Disable "FAST" mixing method on 68020+.
- mmv88.library: Remove "CachePreDMA" calls, they were not required.

Copyright notice:

MusicMaker V8 is herewith declared freeware. I do have, as a matter of fact, 
all necessary licenses.

Q: Why is the program called "V8", when it is only version 3?
A: 8 refers to the number of channels available. "V8" is a playful reference 
to the world of motor engines, where that term usually has the aura of luxury
and grandness.
