SoundTracker is a free tracker for Unix-like operating systems running X Window System for composing music to be saved in module files.

Description[edit]

Its name is a tribute to the 1987 Amiga program Ultimate Soundtracker which is regarded as the first program of this type, while its user interface mostly resembles and indeed functionally mimics Fast Tracker,[1] one of many popular MS-DOS-based audio trackers, supporting saving in its file formats. It generally renders playback using the OpenCP (à la Cubic Player) engine. Initially SoundTracker had used GTK+ (version 1) as its widget toolkit, modern versions (since 1.0.0) use GTK+ 2. For many years, SoundTracker was one of the very few mature audio trackers available for Unix-like operating systems.
