100% or full volume. To change the volume press <F2> and <F3>. This
will change the volume by one dot each time you press a key. The keys <+>
and <-> on the numeric keypad will change the volume smoother.
- Toggle this option with <F4> to enable a simple surround

- The pitch of the file can be altered with <F11>,<F12>
- Most files of the module type are divided into rows and patterns.
The first number shows the currently played row. The second number shows the
total number of rows in the current pattern. All numbers are shown in hexadecimal
- Modules are divided into several orders consisting of patterns. The
first number shows the currently played order. The second number shows the
total number of orders.4.3 All Numbers are shown in hex.

100% might harm sound quality.
