Impulse Tracker Files

Does anyone know if Blitz can play Impulse tracker files or they can be converted to be played by Blitz? Potentially could make or break my first idea for compo game...

OpenMPT (https://openmpt.org/) can maybe convert the IT to a MOD (by loading IT and saving as MOD), but IT is more advanced tracker format with several effects etc. that the MOD format doesn't support. Also, IT usually has better quality samples that the Amiga can't handle.

IT is multi-channel format (more than 4) so i have doubts about conversion to ptk...
Playing these needs software channel mixing, this raises required configuration to 68030 and the replay routine requires asm knowledge.

I fear that you are correct - loading into OpenMPT I can see the mods have a load more than 4 channels. Also (and maybe because of the multiple channels) there is no save as MOD option.

Not sure my game would be the same without the music - time for a rethink!
