Looking for Amiga music tracker that produced an executable file
December 13, 2016 1:03 PM   Subscribe

Many many moons ago I filched a piece of music software from my local Amiga store by copying it to a floppy disk. It was a tracker (like SoundTracker, ProTracker, etc.) which was both French (at least all of the menu items were) and had the distinct feature of producing an executable MOD file. I can't seem to find it online, despite my best Google searching. Does anyone know what it was called?

You may want to ask the folks at gearslutz.com in the computer music section about it. : ) Not that we don't have our share of computer music geeks here, but there's a whole lot over there.

I'm pretty sure that OctaMED could do this, but it's been a very long time. I think me and my buddies used to share executable mod files. 8 tracks on an Amiga. Mind blowing.

I asked one of the hardest core MOD tracker people out there and he was stumped and said try the Amiga facebook group.

I asked our resident Amiga-phile. He didn't know but sent me this link, which has some screenshots if that's helpful. Do you remember what the interface looked like enough to describe it?

Definitely not OctaMed - I was an avid user of thay, along with NoiseTracker and ProTracker. None of those screenshots seemed right, either. I remember it being light blue. I will join this Facebook group to further my inquiry!

I'm pretty sure it was a weird French version of Newtracker now. Thanks for the help!
