As far as I know, a simple vice versa procedure is technical not possible, because the filetypes are too different.

Right they are both compressed a tracker format consist of tones, but a mp3 is just wav.

Its the same problem you get when you try to convert mp3 -> mid.

Any converter can try to recognize the big differences within the wave-form and adjust the shape,

but it will never happen that this can recover the full music, with all instruments.

You could maybe look if the same track already exist in tracker filetype and extract the part as sample,

which you like and need or start the music at point zero.

Something input, the specifications:

But WAV to mod isn't a way to do it either, damn :/ Mp3's are too big too pack in a patch I think,

there's no simple converter that will try to mask the tones from the mp3?

Ah sure, for a patch.

Well, the bassmod in dUP is limited for tracker only. In the case it would be a lib that supports other filetypes

or if there would be a chance to set the lib. something like OggVorbis would be possible.

The music encoded with this sounds good and you can tune it down where mp3 already gives up.

Ok, nothing between them is really intended for really low bitrates, but you can avoid this metallic noise with OggVobis,

that you maybe know from mp3. Just an suggestion. :)

In the keygen case this restriction wouldn't exist.

Do you remember the Ufo+Eclipse-keygen, they used a wav (for little SFX).
