📕 Description [fr]

Une bibliothèque de lecteur IT, XM, S3M et MOD par la DUMB Team (Robert J Ohannessian, Julien Cugnière et Ben Davis).

DUMB (MUET en Français, aka Dynamic Universal Music Bibliotheque) est une bibliothèque multi-plateforme de lecteur IT, XM, S3M et MOD développé par Robert J Ohannessian, Julien Cugnière et moi, Ben Davis.

Elle est utilisé notamment par les jeux (dans le Bottin) : Alex the Allegator 4, Kraptor, Rafkill, Red Pixel 2, UFO2000,

📕 Description [en]

DUMB is an IT, XM, S3M and MOD player library developed by Robert J Ohannessian, Julien Cugnière and me, Ben Davis. XMMS, Beep Media Player and Winamp 2.x/5.x plug-ins are available on this site too.

multi-platform. Very smooth sound. Works with or without Allegro. Current releases play IT/XM/S3M/MOD. In the future: create DUHs. Main advantage over IT: design your own filters, synthesis and more! Click 'Home Page' above for details.


DUMB-XMMS is an XMMS plug-in that uses DUMB (duh). It plays IT, XM, S3M and MOD files. It isn't particularly fancy - in particular it lacks features such as the ability to view the song message - but it is still usable, and it takes advantage of all the features listed above for DUMB.

Other player plug-ins

For those wanting to use DUMB with Beep Media Player, Michael Doering has converted DUMB-XMMS and provided an unofficial 'DUMB-BMP' package. There was a patch and some discussion here until the link broke, but you can obtain the package on the downloads page.

Winamp 2.x and 5.x users whose systems have not yet been trashed by buffer overflow exploits will be pleased to know that there is an unofficial Winamp plug-in too. I say 'unofficial', but it doesn't crash the way our own attempt did, so give it a try! See the Downloads page.


DUMBOGG is an add-on library that adds support for Ogg Vorbis files to DUMB. OGG files cannot yet be embedded in other files (e.g. Allegro datafiles), but once an OGG file is loaded into a DUH struct, you can treat it like any other piece of music; all the usual operations like seeking and playing several at once are possible. The current implementation does not buffer the OGG in memory, but streams it from disk; future versions will give you the option here. Thanks to Sven for writing this add-on!

Please note that this is currently out of date and only works with DUMB v0.9.1.
