Try XMPlay. It plays MOD, XM, IT, etc.. with very good quality. XMPlay plays mp3 and ogg too. So it's not just for mods. It has diskwriter to output the sound as wav files for cd burning.

Also if you want same quality for MOD playback as UQM, you should look for player which has MikMod as the engine. I think there's Winamp plugin for that.. but I'd install Oldsk00l plugin for MOD playback (it doesn't play XM/IT, and Winamp sucks with XM/IT, so use XMPlay for those).

Winamp5 will have direct cd-burning capabilities I recall, so you could burn the audio cds from there directly.

then i suppose some of the remixs arnt mods. i cant convert the thaddash for example.

If you're referring to Ringwraith's Thraddash mix... Well, it's in Ogg Vorbis format, so Winamp, XMMS, oggdec, ogg123 or whatever you're playing on should have a WAV output option.

Most of the time, you should be able to work out the file type from the extension (if your system is hiding file extensions, like Windows does by default, you should unhide them). Here's a list of common file types and my recommended converters:

  • MOD (and other Amiga formats): DeliPlayer, Winamp with Oldsk00l plugin, ModPlug.
  • S3M, XM, IT, other PC trackers: ModPlug.
  • OGG: oggdec, ogg123, XMMS, Winamp.
  • MP3: mpg123, XMMS, Winamp.

A fair number of the MODs (Druuge, for instance) violate the old Amiga ProTracker constraints on things like ranges of notes.  Extremely strict MOD players may choke on them as "invalid."

I prefer Audacity, it's free, open-source, and of fairly good quality; but for a simple file format conversion, it might be "a bit much" for your needs.

Winamp can play .ogg files, and if you use the DiskWriter output plugin, can do an implicit conversion to WAV format for you.  If you're already a Winamp user, this might be the way to go.

Two things:

1.  The Audacity Users List is a much better place to ask questions about Audacity than The Ur-Quan Masters Forum.  Reason being that everyone on the list uses Audacity, whereas almost noone on this forum does.

2.  When you ask them, you might want to try devoting at least 20 words to your problem description; verbosity helps people understand your situation better so that they may help you.
