Best module player / wav export for the PC?

I was using surf smurfs OldsK00l mod plugin for winamp, although there are a couple of little errors i've noticed in my modules, mainly the timing and some of the other command. Is there a better player for this?

You can also have a look at XMPlay and UADE (look for the CygWin version) since Deliplayer isn't anymore supported and has some issues with Windows Vista

Sure, that's a good choice However you can also let the original demo/game run to hear the music this way

Or you can use DeliTracker, the same as Deliplayer (Windows) but it was originally created for the Amiga

I wonder if there is a big difference... Using WinUAE to start DeliTracker instead of using Deliplayer directly that is

I think using Delitracker (Amiga - WinUAE) works slightly better than it's Windows counterpart. I have had a few abnormalities with DeliPlayer with some tunes that I don't get with Delitracker, so if you want perfection, I'd say Amiga - WinUAE Delitracker is tops

True, but only about 30% of my music ever got used in demos / games.

Ah, okay now I get it Of course it's the best way to listen to Amiga mods within WinUAE like DemonHellraiser said. I use PC Tracker programs to listen to them most of the time, but it sounds different than through WinUAE with ProTracker for example. To have the best result (closest to the original Amiga sound) on a PC you should use WinUAE and the Tracker/Player of your choice

That's because WinUAE (also UADE) contains resampler code that closely models the way Paula generates sounds along with a model of the Amiga's audio filter chain, "normal" PC trackers do not. The RH and Crux interpolation options in WinUAE are basically equivalent to the Linear and Cubic options you see in some PC players, that is, they both sound OK but don't simulate a real Paula chip very well.

I'm guessing this is most obvious when the Windows native players are used rather than the original Amiga ones e.g. the TFMX player does sound quite different to the real thing.

Deliplayer is still the mutts nuts to me.

I still use deliplayer as an MP3 player because the default settings / MPEG decoder give a much clearer sound with a more natural bass than Foobar2000 or WMP
