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.

Tons of features and 180hz refresh rate for fast pitch sweeps and other effects. And yes, it has Auto Echo too!
