WHAT IS A TRACKER?



A tracker is the generic term for a class of music sequencer software. It allows the user to arrange the notes stepwise on a timeline across several monophonic channels. A tracker's interface is primarily numeric; notes are entered via the alphanumeric keys of the computer keyboard, while parameters, effects and so forth are entered in hexadecimal.
