V3.00 BETA (January 1993) - Hires version
	Made by Cryptoburners, and based upon V1.3, and does therefore not contain the
features of V1.8A - V2.3A.

    * PowerPacker support. Powerpacker.library must be present in the
"sys:libs/" directory. Version needed: 35.000 or higher. It is however
recommended that you have at least 1MB to use this feature with large modules.

    * Format now works with dfx. Remember to specify which drive to format in
the "path" string-gadget.

    * New filerequester.
    * Screen to back gadgets. You may also use Left Amiga + M/N.
    * Standalone playroutine supporting Finetune etc. Not fast though :(
    * Some speedups in the SampleEd. It was awfully slow at marking in HIRES!

    * New pointer! The old one was simply too big for the new resolution.. :)
    * Setupscreen revised and merged into one.
    * Date and time online at mainscreen.
    * Task interferance problems fixed (Improved multitasking). No busy waits.
    * The dragging routine in the sampler draws pixels instead of lines when
    * Major rearranging on mainscreen; editor centered and some new buttons for
editing, such as cut/paste, up/down octave etc.
    * You may now click into the different tracks with the left mousebutton! :o

mess with your tunes in a multitasking environment.

    * The sampler works again! ;)

    * Detached from CLI.
    * Loaded IFF samples correctly.
    * Used sprites to show loop in sampler.
    * Several directory paths in disk operations screen.
    * Protracker will now run if you have Kickstart 2.0 installed! (A500, A1000,
A2000, A3000 etc...)
    * Keyboard buffer. Wow!!! Now you can play really fast, and PT won't miss a
single key (...well, not as many as it used to before...).
    * The vertical blank interrupt no longer patches the vector itself, but uses
the AddIntServer function.
    * The playroutine creates it's own CIA or VBLANK interrupt, and it will not
be removed if a song is playing when you go to CLI/Workbench.
    * Improved "Out of memory" handling (hopefully no more gurus...).
    * Only the first 2 bytes of a sample will be zeroed (were the first 4).
    * Lots of new keyboard commands/shortcuts using the Alt key.
    * Vibrato depth changed to be compatible with NT2.0.

    * Play samples from the keypad (dot mode) when pressing backslash.
    * Quadrascope. Four channel oscilloscope that displays the samples in real-
time, even when playing from keyboard. The good old spectrum analyzer is still
there, just click on the scope to toggle.
    * Tempo gadget. Default is 125 BPM (normal vblank speed), but that can be
changed if you select CIA timing on Setup2. Range is 32-255 BPM, and can also be

    * Override: Load/save sample from samplepath even if there's a path in the
samplename. ST-37:bigbadbass with override will be loaded from DF0: (or
whatever) instead of ST-37:. You may want to put all your samples in one big
directory on your harddisk...
    * NoSamples: Will load a song without asking for the samples.
    * BlankZero: This will show the samplenumbers in the pattern in the same way
as Noisetracker 1.2 (Zeros are blanked out).

    * Show Publ: If on, PT will show all free Public memory, otherwise just free
Chip memory.

will be saved in the copybuffer.

adding a path in the sampleeditor.

faster. Turning it on might help.
    * Set Default paths. * You can set the maximum number of presets (used to be
    * DMA wait. Use this on 25MHz Amigas (normally 300, use 900 on A3000).

    * ST-disk number changed to hex (ST-00> ST-FF)!
    * Adding samples with IFF-loops to the presetlist is possible.

there's no PLST.
    * ST-disk number changed to HEX. This means you can have up to $FF, or 255
ST-disks (used to be 99).
    * Sample Graphing like Audiomaster. With Show Range, Show All, Zoom Out,
Range All, etc...
    * Play either Waveform, Display or Range.

    * PatternLoop (It always jumped to the start of the pattern, not the loop)
    * FineTune AND Glissando-Control were in the same command! (E3)
    * Fade Up / Down caused shit and even a few gurus!
    * Delete Pos inserted pattern 77 (!) at position 127 in the song, causing it
to be longer than 80k!
    * Filter All Samples was slow as hell because it tried to filter nonexistant
    * If you selected sample 0 from the keypad, it always played the last sample
played as sample 0!
    * A590 harddisk owners couldn't use the keyboard because of the way Mahoney
& Kaktus set up the keyboard interrupt (their NT1.1 routine was used).
    * Entering the help screen when in the midi screen fucked up the display.
    * Escaping from Mix exited from the whole edit op.!
    * CutBeg no longer fucks up the Sample length and Pos.
