Un tracker inspiré de Fasttracker II, par la Milkytracker Team.

MilkyTracker est une application musicale open source et multi-plateforme permettant de créer des fichiers de modules ".MOD" et ".XM".
Il tente de recréer l'expérience de relecture et le ressenti utilisateur du programme Fasttracker II (sous DOS), avec les modes spéciaux de lecture disponibles pour améliorer sa compatibilité avec l'Amiga ProTracker.

Description [en]

MilkyTracker is an open source, multi-platform music application for creating .MOD and .XM module files.
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.

A couple of facts:
• MilkyTracker is not based on any common module replay. Its core MilkyPlay has been in development since the mid-90s, originally as a Digitrakker .MDL player.
• MilkyTracker development started a decade later for the Pocket PC and it still fully operates on rather humble PDAs.
• MilkyTracker is and will stay a 2nd generation tracker. There are already several good 3rd generation trackers out there.
