What is S3M?
The S3M format is an advanced module format, and is the successor to the STM format
used by the original Scream Tracker. Both formats are based on the original MOD
format used on the Commodore Amiga computer.
The S3M format has many differences compared to its predecessors.
- The format is a hybrid of digital playback and synthesized instruments. The
official format specification document covers space for 16 digital channels and
14 synthesized ones with two unused slots out of a total of 32.
- Separate volume channel in pattern data.
- Supports more instruments than MOD or STM (99 instead of 31).
- Default panning of channels can be specified by the composer.
- Extra-fine pitch slides are added
- Instruments are not limited to a fixed sample rate for a given note. The
format stores the instrument's sample rate at middle C.
The period table used by S3M is smaller than the one used by the MOD format
(only 12 entries, compared to between 36 and 60 for the MOD variations) and uses
larger values in order to be able to compute the extra-fine pitch slides. The
playback routines, however, use relatively straightfoward formulas to get the
final period values used in playback. The key formula for this takes into account
the instrument's stored sample rate at middle C.
What is MP3?
MPEG-1 Audio Layer 3, more commonly referred to as MP3, is a digital audio encoding
format using a form of lossy data compression. It is a common audio format for
consumer audio storage, as well as a de facto standard encoding for the transfer
and playback of music on digital audio players. MP3's use of a lossy compression
algorithm is designed to greatly reduce the amount of data required to represent
the audio recording and still sound like a faithful reproduction of the original
uncompressed audio for most listeners, but is not considered high fidelity audio
by audiophiles. An MP3 file that is created using the mid-range bit rate setting
of 128 kbit/s will result in a file that is typically about 1/10th the size of
the CD file created from the original audio source. An MP3 file can also be constructed
at higher or lower bit rates, with higher or lower resulting quality. The compression
works by reducing accuracy of certain parts of sound that are deemed beyond the
auditory resolution ability of most people. This method is commonly referred to
as perceptual coding. It internally provides a representation of sound within
a short term time/frequency analysis window, by using psychoacoustic models to
discard or reduce precision of components less audible to human hearing, and recording
the remaining information in an efficient manner. This is relatively similar to
the principles used by JPEG, an image compression format.
