By providing a hybrid of the tracker interface and state-of-the-art technologies like VST and ReWire support, MadTracker offers an unconventional, productive and intuitive music composition tool that can be either used stand-alone or as an extension to any existing setup.

Yannick Delwiche has released version 2.5 of his free music composition tool: MadTracker. With this release, MadTracker combines the power and speed of the tracker interface with the advanced possibilities of VST plugins and ReWire support. MadTracker is targeted for any level or type of composer.

The tracker of the 21st century

MadTracker is based on the established tracker concept. Unlike the traditional piano roll and its horizontal time structure, a tracker provides a vertical structure for the composition of music. Arrangements can be made in either real-time or in steps via a MIDI or regular PC keyboard. The usage of a tracker interface instead of a piano roll or matrix sequencer provides a powerful environment for intuitive and efficient creation or adaptation of compositions.

MadTracker 2.5 is the first tracker-based music program with ReWire support enabling composers to integrate MadTracker directly into their existing setup. Furthermore, full VST support guarantees an unlimited working space in which the imagination, rather than the software, sets the boundaries of what is possible. MadTracker can therefore either be used as a powerful stand-alone composition tool, or a refreshing and unconventional addition to any existing studio.

In contrast to most major music programs, MadTracker demands little system resources, and runs on virtually every computer that runs any version of Windows. It uses the normal Windows interface for intuitive usage, but within the distinctive MadTracker design. MadTracker comes bundled with a broad range of songs, samples and VST plugins to get users started right out of the box.

Software... and more!
MadTracker is embedded with an active and fruitful community. Many changes within MadTracker are the result of user requests. Multiple types of competitions for users take place, either organized or spontaneous. The forum and chat room give rise to collaborations, remixes, constructive feedback and a general good time. A dedicated community section on the website gives access to on line articles about technologies, composers and other related topics.

Yannick Delwiche founded his own business (commonly called "") in September 2001 following the success of his spare- time project: MadTracker. During the years, he successfully kept the tracking spirit alive thanks to his numerous innovations on the tracker concept and the organisation of community-oriented activities.

Interesting, seems that it's usable as freeware, but has additional features for standard and pro registration.

The tracker format is INCREDIBLE, think of it as a MIDI with instruments included and you're not far off - not as compact as MIDI, but you could play a tune on car horn and saucepans if you wanted to. Essentially, it's like a keyboard with a sampler.

First tracker player I ever used was "Inertia player" - in DOS, on PC speaker (and with a Pc speaker that was normally load and clear, the results were amazing) - it could also use several popular soundcards.
