Musetracker [windows]
Free Download >>> Musetracker.zip
MusetrackerMusetracker (formerly called Pornotracker) is an NES music tracker that I originally created about 4 years ago to be used in the NES demo "High Hopes". Back then FamiTracker was too resource hungry to be used in a demo and NerdTracker II, IMO, was too limited. I was supposed to release it right after Assembly 2007 but somehow that didn't happen due to feature creep and some other things. I have a added a lot of features since then, like raw PCM sample support and better editing options. Pornotracker is the only NES tracker supporting raw PCM samples (7-bit with 7.8 kHz sampling rate). Because of this it's not possible to export to NSF at this time. Exporting to an iNES ROM file is possible though, and I hope at some point we can get an iNES ROM based NES music format off the ground.
