What is Mod
The sample files
of today like mp3 and wma
are only possible thanks
to cheaper memory (the kids
nowadays don't know how lucky
they are... etc...). Mod
music was developed at a
time when storage/program
memory was very expensive.
A mod file contains a few
tiny samples and some instructions
telling the computer how
to build a tune out of them.
The end result is great sounding
music that only occupies
a miniscule amount of memory.
This is IDEAL for smaller
computers like PDAs, after
all you won't fit many MP3s
on your iPAQ but you'll be
able to fit thousands of
mod files on it.

Where can I get
Here's a zip file with
some great tunes written by a chipper
who goes by the name of TDK, we
like these, because they are hand
crafted to be polished whilst taking
very little storage memory.
You can search for many more yourself, here's some links:
Back 2 The Roots
ST-00 Mods Memorium
GoogleSearch (Chip Tunes)...
How do I use it?
After copying some tunes onto your iPAQ, launch 'Cyber Mod.exe'.
Tap the 'OPEN' button and select a tune. You should hear it play straight away.
You can adjust the sliders
by grabbing the vertical bar and dragging,
or a less fiddly way is to tap the horizontal
bar to the left or the right of the vertical
The only control that's not
hyper intuitive is the 'BUFFER' slider.
This allows you to specify the size of
the audio buffer. A lower setting will
make the player more responsive to user
input, A higher setting will make the player
more resilient to glitching. The new buffer
settings will only take effect after you've
pressed 'STOP' or 'OPEN'ed another tune.
