       xmp is a tracked music module player. It plays many module formats  including  Fasttracker
       II (XM), Noise/Fast/Protracker (MOD), Scream Tracker 3 (S3M) and Impulse Tracker (IT). Run
       xmp --list-formats for a complete list of supported formats.


       -a, --amplify factor
              Amplification factor for the software mixer. Valid amplification factors range from
              0  to  3. Default is 1. . Warning: higher amplification factors may cause distorted
              or noisy output.

       -b, --bits bits
              Set the software mixer resolution (8 or 16 bits). If ommited, The audio device will
              be opened at the highest resolution available.

       -c, --stdout
              Mix the module to stdout.

       -D device-specific parameter
              Pass  a  configuration  parameter  to  the  device  driver.  See  the DEVICE DRIVER
              PARAMETERS section below for a list of known parameters.

       -d, --driver driver
              Select the output driver. If not specified, xmp will try to  probe  each  available

       -F, --nofilter
              Disable IT lowpass filter effect and envelopes.

       -f, --frequency rate
              Set the software mixer sampling rate in hertz.

              Halve  sample  loop  start  values.  Use  it  to  work  around bad conversions from
              15-instrument modules and to correctly play NoisePacker v2 and certain UNIC files.

       -h, --help
              Show a short summary of command-line options.

       -I, --instrument-path path
              Set the pathname to the directory containing external samples.

       -i, --interpolation type
              Select  interpolation  type.  Available  types  are  nearest  for  nearest-neighbor
              interpolation,  linear  for  linear  interpolation,  and  spline  for  cubic spline
              interpolation. Default is cubic spline.

              Load module and exit.

       -L, --list-formats
              List supported module formats.

       -l, --loop
              Enable module looping.

              Loop over the entire module list.

       -M, --mute channel-list
              Mute the specified channels. channel-list is  a  comma-separated  list  of  decimal
              channel ranges. Example: 0,2-4,8-16.

       -m, --mono
              Force mono output (default is stereo in stereo-capable devices).

       -N, --null
              Load and mix module, but discard output data (same as --device=null).

              Disable interactive commands.

       -o, --output-file filename
              Set  the  output  file name when mixing to raw or WAV files. If ´-´ is given as the
              file name, the output will be sent to stdout.

              Emulate Protracker 2.x handling of effect 0x09 (set sample offset).

       -P, --pan num
              Set the percentual panning amplitude.

              Exit after probing the audio device.

       -R, --random
              Play modules in random order.

       -r, --reverse
              Reverse left/right stereo channels.

       -S, --solo channel-list
              Play only the specified channels. channel-list is a comma-separated list of decimal
              channel ranges. Example: 0,2-4,8-16.

       -s, --start pos
              Start playing the module from the position pos.

       -t, --time time
              Specifies the maximum playing time to time seconds.

       -u, --unsigned
              Tell  the  software mixer to use unsigned samples when mixing to a file (default is

              Force Amiga vblank-based timing (no CIA tempo setting).

       -V, --version
              Print version information.

       -v, --verbose
              Verbose mode (incremental). If specified more than once, the verbosity  level  will
              be increased (no messages will be displayed when the player runs in background).

       -Z, --all-sequences
              Play all hidden or alternative pattern sequences (subsongs) in module.

       -z, --sequence num
              Play hidden or alternative pattern sequence num (0 is the main sequence).


       Use  the  option -D to send parameters directly to the device drivers. Multiple -D options
       can be specified in the command line.

       File output options:

       -D endian=big
              Generate big-endian 16-bit samples (default is the machine byte ordering).

       -D endian=little
              Generate little-endian 16-bit samples (default is the machine byte ordering).

       ALSA driver options:

       -D buffer=value
              Set buffer size in ms. Default value is 250.

       -D period=value
              Set period time in ms. Default value is 50.

       -D card=name
              Choose the ALSA device to use. Default value is "default".

       OSS driver options:

       -D frag=num,size
              Set the maximum number of fragments to num and the size of each  fragment  to  size
              bytes  (must  be  a power of two).  The number and size of fragments set a tradeoff
              between the buffering latency  and  sensibility  to  system  load.  To  get  better
              synchronization,  reduce  the values. To avoid gaps in the sound playback, increase
              the values.

       -D dev=device_name
              Set the audio device to open. Default is /dev/dsp.

       -D nosync
              Don´t sync the OSS audio device between modules.

       BSD driver options:

       -D gain=value
              Set the audio gain. Valid values range from 0 to 255.  The default is 128.

       -D buffer=size
              Set the size in bytes of the audio buffer. Default value is 32 Kb.

       HP-UX and Solaris driver options:

       -D gain=value
              Set the audio gain. Valid values range from 0 to 255.  The default is 128.

       -D port={s|h|l}
              Set the audio port.  Valid  arguments  are  s  for  the  internal  speaker,  h  for
              headphones and l for line out. The default is the internal speaker.

       -D buffer=size
              Set the size in bytes of the audio buffer. The default value is 32 Kb.
