Straight from the readme file a clear case of RTFM.

Code:
** KEYS FOR FILE SELECTA MODE **

HELP        = Switch screens (load and DJ mode)
UP / DOWN   = Select file
RETURN      = Load tune
F10         = Sort list by BPM (toggles asc / desc)
F9          = Sort list by filename (toggles asc / desc)
F8          = Show module size (in KB)
ESCAPE      = Quit (hold for a second)
A-Z / 0-9   = Pick first file with matching first letter

NOTE: Quit will not work if a tune is playing!

** KEYS FOR DJ MODE **

HELP        = Switch screens (load and DJ mode)
LEFT        = Nudge backward
RIGHT       = Nudge forward
SHIFT LEFT  = Hard nudge forward
SHIFT RIGHT = Hard nudge back 
UP          = Increase BPM
DOWN        = Decrease BPM
SHIFT UP    = Increase BPM fine tune
SHUFT DOWN  = Decrease BPM fine tune
SPACE       = Stop / Play
TAB         = Toggle repitch on / off
`           = Kills sound DMA
1/2/3/4		= Mute / Un-Mute Channel

              Pattern / Position Functions
F1          = Jump to cue pattern
F2          = Jump to cue pattern after current pattern ends
F3          = Set current pattern as cue
F10         = Pattern Loop (start / stop / deactivate)
+           = Move forward one pattern
-           = Move back one pattern
SHIFT +     = Move forward line loop position
SHIFT -     = Move back line loop position
CTRL +      = Move cue pattern forward
CTRL -      = Move cue pattern backwards

              Line Loop Functions
F6          = Decrease loop size
F7          = Increase loop size
F5          = Activate loop
F4          = Toggle Slip On / Off

Never mind - I found the readme.txt file which didn't unarc. Unarcing it manually gave me the file. Awesome stuff here! Thanks again for your efforts and hard work!

Glad you found it. It's an amazing tool indeed. They're working on a new version, which will even be more awesome!

I thought it was a very thoughtful extra step to provide MOD archives. I'm usually not interested in those sorts of styles, but I've been going through those 3 modpacks they posted for download and they're incredible!

Hey I am glad you appreciated those, we compiled them with love

For anyone wondering if this is dead, it isn't, we've been working on it all this time, it's just that life and higher priorities get in the way.

As someone said already here, we're more active on our Discord server where we talk about PT-1210 related stuff and other music nerd shit ;P Feel free to join with the following link:
https://discord.gg/68P9seP

Why has it been this long without updates? We have basically rewritten the program from scratch to make it system-friendly, which was the necessary step to have the new features we wanted and fix the worst bugs that the program had. The video shared by spudje from Revision goes through some of the struggles in doing this.

Some of the new features of PT-1210's next version, of which we already have a beta version running around our computers and those of a few users, are:

- System-friendly, which has made it completely compatible with A500s, KS1.3, floppy disk reading and more. The thing now runs basically on everything (we tested on A500, A600, A1200, CD32, A4000, CDTV, all with varying expansions and stock configs)
- Filesystem navigation. You can now browse drives and folders from within PT-1210. No more fucking around.
- Even tighter timing. The tempo is so solid that it barely drifts among configurations. It used to be that if you used different speed Amigas, the tempo drift would vary a lot. No more.
- More compatible with module files that were problematic
- Lots of different tiny new features like tempo locking and others.

Thank you to anyone who used and supported this software during these years, and fuckings to the few disrespectful shits that many times made me wonder why we even bother making software for the Amiga "community". For free. Yeah we have to be some level of stupid

Thanks Akira and rest of the team for this beautiful software. Looking forward to the next version.

Also I very much appreciate the module packs, especially the Drum and Bass one, its pure bliss!

Wow, just learned about this piece of software, congrats it looks very impressive !

May I ask stupid questions ?

As you're moving to a more system-friendly approach, will AHI and possibly PPC OSes by supported ? I'm thinking of a specific use case where only 1 machine would be available but would be able to make use of 2*4 channels through AHI.

Congrats for this piece of software, wow !

Nope, not at all. It remains a true old school Amiga project, using the custom chipset, and we have no interest in the "nextgen" platform.
System friendly does not necessarily mean hardware agnostic.

If you want to mix modules in one machine, you can use echolevel's Chipdisco: https://github.com/echolevel/chipdisco

Appreciate the good words and interest!

Any news Yes I know, I'm impatient.

A question, is it possible to somehow rip mods from recent Amiga demos, e.g. The rift, Profundis, Brutalism, The Fall, Pt 2 Horizons, etc. or are these coded in some advance streaming mode?

Would be awesome to include these in sets.

6 years since first release can hardly be considered impatience. Thanks for your patience

This is in no way any sort of timeframe whatsoever, but we're basically at 50% from the next version of PT-1210.

In case I haven't mentioned it before, we have basically rewritten most of it from scratch, so that takes a lot of time. Also, you know, even with COVID shit, people have lives, other projects to tend to, etc.

For example, d0pefish has been quite busy with the bad-ass MT32-pi project.

Thanks for the update. And I'm happy with d0pefish's MT32-pi as well. I'm enjoying that with my X68000
