Exciter Player - UADE MUI Frontend for MorphOS
Release date: 13.03.2010
Exciter player is a MUI Frontend for UADE. It`s dedicated for crazy Amiga freaks
which loves old Amiga music modules :). But what is UADE ?
UADE (Unix Amiga Delitracker Emulator) is a command-line player of Amiga music
modules. It was ported for MorphOS by Piru in the year 2005. It can handle over
200 music file formats from Amiga computer (e.g: MOD, MED, AHX, Future composer).
Modules played with UADE sound nearly like on a real Amiga, just because UADE
emulates many chips assembled on the original Amiga motherboard. That`s why I've
chosen UADE as my favorite module player. Unfortunately, it hasn`t got any GUI
which could provide more comfortable way of listening to Amiga modules :(
One day I woke up and decided to change this situation, then I started writing
my own, simple GUI for UADE. After a few weeks of hard work, GUI fronted was
But how to name this "monster" I thought? While I was thinking, I looked on my
desk. Beside my keyboard and Mac Mini (MorphOS running on it ;) I saw a CD box.
It was Depeche Mode album called EXCITER. Hallelujah!!!
That's how EXCiTeR Player was born! :)
- any version of MorphOS
- UADE player for MorphOS. You can download it from here:
- Download and unpack UADE Player
- Run Exciter Player and go to menu Settings->UADE Prefs.
Choose exec. file with UADE player and save configuration.
- Add some modules to the list (drag & drop suppoted!) and play them loudly :)
Yeah... there are a lot of things that need to be done in the future,
but the main goal has been reached - GUI for UADE is alive and working!
Let`s keep this track ;)
But what should be done in the near future?
- Reading module names/infos and displaying them in Exciter Player
- Redirect CLI output of UADE to Exciter Player
- Make a separate version for AmigaOS4 users.
- Exciter Player is mailware. If you like this little progy, just send me an e-mail :)
- UADE is based on UAE so the copyright is GNU GPL License.
I wouldn't say too much about me - it`s unnecessary. I just want to say
that I'm an Amiga freak which is addicted to Amiga and the music made on
this fantastic computer. The spirit of good old Amiga is injected into modern
operating systems (like MorphOS or AmigaOS4). These great operating systems
inspired classic AmigaOS, continually stimulating users activity. Exciter Player
is my little tribute to the modern and classic Amiga's countenance.
I wish you to have a lot of pleasure when you use Exciter Player :)
Let`s save this great music and great memories !
