MilkyTracker is an open source, multi-platform music application for creating .MOD and .XM module files (part of what we call s3xmodit). It attempts to recreate the module replay and user experience of the popular DOS program Fasttracker II, with special playback modes available for improved Amiga ProTracker 2/3 compatibility.
