OpenMPT

Know something about this production that we don't?

Originally released in 1997 by Olivier Lapicque, ModPlug Tracker was one of the first trackers for Microsoft Windows (maybe even the first - need sources for verification). Lapicque kept developing MPT for a few more years until he released the source code in early 2004. Since then, the tracker (now known as Open ModPlug Tracker / OpenMPT) has been fixed and expanded by various other developers.

OpenMPT can play a wide variety of module formats and natively supports editing of MOD, XM, S3M, IT and MPTM files. It can be used both for creating oldschool sample-based tracked music as well as a modern DAW with VST plugin support.

libopenmpt is a cross-platform module playback library based on the OpenMPT core, offering the same playback quality to a variety of other programs.

Old versions can be found in the release archive.
