After using ModPlug Player for listening MOD/XM/S3M/IT format (oldschool) on my PC, I would like to know if one Player can play MOD/XM/S3M/IT/MT2/XRNS format because I love listening modules (oldschool) and recent musics...

The latest version of WinAMP works perfectly to support MT2 plugin. But it play not correcty old modules (MOD, IT, XM...).

Today, I use the latest version of XMPlayer 3.4 :-) What do you think ? Anyone knows the best player modules on PC in 2008 ?

Thanks & Greetings,

Hi ViZiON, welcome to the forums.

For classic module playback XM, MOD, S3M, IT, etc, BASS / XM-Play are considered accurate playback.

There was a plugin written for winamp called in_bass.dll which would playback modules using the BASS sound library.

I came across this link which also claimed to do the same thing.

I've heard more negative answers to this question (players to avoid) than positives, but I can tell you that the libmikmod based players tend to play a lot of formats, but be inaccurate in one or another sense, from personal experience.

I have good luck with the tracker-playing abilities built into Xine, which I think are based on the same libraries as MODPlug (someone chime in and correct me if I'm wrong.)

There is no player for Renoise files other than Renoise, due to the nature of the format.. What if a song used vsti's, etc, and the listener didn't have those instruments installed, the player wouldn't be able to render them.

I do wish Renoise would have a little player/playlist inside of itself though
