    Hi Jeff,

    Not sure but you could contact these guys through email. They at least list .xm on their conversion list.

    Good luck...

    Isn't XM a tracker format? If so, I don't think there is a way to directly convert an aif or wav file to an tracker file. That would be like converting audio to MIDI, which is nearly impossible to do with any kind of accuracy.

    I haven't used XM myself, but I'm pretty sure this is the case...

    No.... there is no way to convert audio to XM format
    You can write XM module song from a scratch by ear, listening to a original Wav - only way I know.

    NO.

    .XM is a file format of a program called Fast Tracker 2.xx. It's a tracker.

    download modplug tracker, it's a fairly easier to use to make mod files.

    If size is not an issue, there's is one dirty and half @$$ way to covert your wav to tracker format.. Just import the entire .wav song as an instrument and play it back inside the xm. If your client's engine support MOD that uses ogg compressed samples, you can compress your entire song in ogg format and import it as an instrument and play back in your mod format.

    hope this helps!

    IMHO Don't You think that tracker format is used in these days because of a size issue ? So I don't think that he will be able to play entire wav file...
