Does not play sustains correctly in certain .MOD files, for example the beginning of 12th Warrior:


WinAmp has this same problem, in fact the only windows program I've yet found that actually plays it (nearly) correctly is schismtracker.

Otherwise, excellent player and prefer it to schism for playlist functionality.

The M command does not work correctly when playing S3M module. S3M-file was created in schismtracker-20190614.

I have looked around but I can't find how to make skins. Maybe I am just very tired or i am dumb. Can someone who know how to do skins make a Mod4Win skin? https://techdistortion.com/img/Mod4Win.png

Big time fan of this player.
Just one little request could you take a look at the code
for 'random order' in the play list? I've noticed over the
years that it has a tendency to well not be so random.
Maybe use time / date for the seed...

#38 - Playback volume bug rated this file 4 stars on 2018-09-11, 13:56:05
XMPLay calculates playback volume twice, then master system volume plays over it.
0.75 * 0.75 * 0.15 = guess what the resulting output volume is.

XMplay is easily the best software for looping wav files seemlessly without added space (hiccups, if you will). I've tried all the others and have only found success with XMPlay. The program is power-packed with a number of features and the tiny footprint makes it easily the best music player for certain tasks. in a word: Indespensible.

Excellent player. The GUI is much better than foobar. There are many plugins to do many things. So far I love it! For those worried about possible malware, test the exe file at www.virustotal.com/en/. 61 out of 67 scan engines mark it as clean, and those include the big names, such as Avast, AVG, F-Prot, F-Secure, Sophos, Kaspersky, Malwarebytes, McAfee, Microsoft, Symantec, TrendMicro, Webroot, and ZoneAlarm. So don't worry about malware in this product.

Great! The new version is able to run DSP strictly on 16 bit resolution. It means no more crashes with old Winamp DSP when playing different high-resolution files (24 bit, 32 bit). Thank you very much!!!
