Amiga Music Collection
Spacer.. Rippers Smooth..

I've had some requests for rippers I've used, so here's a list of them with screenshots, some information and where to get them. As you may have noticed, they are downloaded from a swedish Aminet server, and therefore some (or all) download links can be broken. In that case, you should use Aminet's search to find and download these files from some other Aminet server.

Then, how to use a ripper? Well, first start the game, and when you hear the music you'd like to try to rip, reset your Amiga (or if you have Action Replay, then select option that Amiga won't clear it's memory when you reset it. I don't remember for sure if Amiga clears it's memory when it's reseted?). Then, load the selected ripper, set options (if needed) and start ripping. If you're lucky, it reports that xxx has been found.. There are many games and intros which musics can't be ripped, and if you manage to rip them, they are usually in a format that no player can play..

All the rippers here are for Amiga as there's really no good rippers for PC..

Pro-Wizard is a multi-converter for music modules "packed" with tools like NoisePacker, Promizer, ProPacker, ProRunner and so on.... Of course, it converts these formats into our good oldy PROTRACKER format!

Moreover, regarding to a tool like Delitracker, it's better to convert packed modules into Protracker format, so that Delitracker plays'em in the correct way.... Coz with each Deliplayer, sometimes, some functions are very bad written and some effects are not handled etc...

Pro-Wizard can detect & rip following music formats:

Protracker normal, Heatseeker Packer, KRIS Packer, Xann Packer, Promizer v1.0c, Pha Packer, Promizer v1.8a, Noise Packer v1/2, Promizer v2.0, Noise Packer v3.0m ProRunner v1.0, Wanton Packer, ProRunner v2.0, UNIC Packer, NoiseRunner, Laxity Packer, ProPacker v1.0, SKYT Packer, ProPacker v2.1, EUREKA Packer, AC1D Packer, Pygmy Projects, Digital Illusions, Channel Player v1, Channel Player v2, Channel Player v3, Promizer v4.0, ProPacker v3.0, The Player v5.0a, StarTrekker Packer, The Player v6.0a, Game Music Creator, Module Protector, Promizer v0.1, FC-M Packer, Soundtracker 2.6, Ice-Tracker, Fuzzac Packer, Old-Kefrens Packer, The Player v4.xx, Tracker Packer 1, Tracker Packer 2&3, NoiseTracker Pak, Polka Packer, Power Music, SoundTK Pro 3.0, Zen Packer, The Player v6.1a & Hornet Packer.
