MODPlug Tracker
Modplug TrackerIf you've ever dreamed of creating your own music, you've just found the perfect tool to do so! If you have a Windows-based PC, you can use the MODPlug Tracker (MPT) to discover the music inside!

ModPlug Tracker makes use of features common to Microsoft Windows programs, such as context menus for effect selection, "tree" views for files, samples, and patterns, and drag-and-drop functionality throughout. It supports both loading and saving of IT (Impulse Tracker), XM (FastTracker Extended Module), MOD and S3M (Soundtracker) files, loads many sample file formats, and has some support for DLS banks and soundfonts.
MODPlug Tracker Quick Start Kit
If you want to dive right in to tracking and have everything that you need in one package, this Quick Start Kit is for you. The Kit contains the original MODPlug Tracker (1.16, which can be upgraded to 1.17 at any time) as well as the MODPlug Tracker Tutorial, VST effects for your songs, extended instructions on using MIDI files with the MODPlug Tracker, and example songs. If you are new to the MODPlug Tracker or new to Tracking in general, this Kit is highly recommended.
The Different Versions of MPT
The original author of the MODPlug software, Olivier Lapicque, has made the source code of the MODPlug Tracker public. Now that it is "Open Source", there are other versions of the Tracker available. Originally, the Open Source version of the Tracker was known as "MPT Wild!", but is now simply known as OpenMPT. Development information and downloads can be found on the project's SourceForge page.
The version that is available for download from this site is the last version released by Olivier Lapicque and does not contain many of the great new features that have been added since the project went Open Source. More information on the OpenMPT version of MODPlug Tracker can be found at the OpenMPT Wiki.
