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.
MilkyTracker's key features:
Fasttracker II like, custom graphical user interface with context menus
Supported on multiple platforms including portable devices
Very accurate .XM replay compared to FT2
ProTracker 2/3 playback modes for playing and editing .MOD files
Various resampler options including emulated Amiga 500/1200 sound output

Tabbed user interface for opening and playing up to 32 modules simultaneously and for exchanging data between them
Over 30 imported module formats
Basic archive support for loading zipped, powerpacked and UMX modules directly
Rendering songs/patterns to disk (.WAV) or directly to sample
Powerful sample editor featuring waveform generators
In-depth instrument editor featuring envelope zooming and scaling and support for copying and swapping instruments and samples across tabs
Low latency audio driver support
MIDI In support
Internal file browser option
Various font sizes for improved visibility of pattern data
Prospective pattern view option
Playing and editing simultaneously
Live mode for seamless pattern changes
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.
