OpenMPT is a popular tracker software for Windows.
OpenMPT (short hand for Open ModPlug Tracker) is completely free and allows you to create and play back some great music on your computer.
Based on the original ModPlug Tracker written by Olivier Lapicque, OpenMPT is free software, can import a wide variety of module formats and offers an intuitive, native GUI as well as advanced features such as VST plugins and ASIO output. In addition to its own song format, OpenMPT can natively edit Impulse Tracker, FastTracker, Scream Tracker and ProTracker module files. Read more about it on the features page!
libopenmpt is a cross-platform C++ and C module playback library. It is based on the player code of the Open ModPlug Tracker project. It offers high-quality module playback on a variety of platforms.
This small update to OpenMPT 1.31 is just a quick bugfix release to address a regression introduced in the first OpenMPT 1.31 release in keyboard shortcut handling, as well as a couple of issues found with the experimental builds for Windows XP and Vista.
Here's a list of the most notable changes in this version:
Last year, community member Paper found a large number of old ModPlug Tracker and ModPlug Player versions, including the at that point earliest known ModPlug Tracker version 1.0 alpha 3.
Today, after some more digging in the Discmaster archive from archive.org, we are happy to present you some even earlier versions!
Among the newly found treasures are several ModPlug Tracker pre-alpha versions, including the now earliest known version pre-alpha 4. This version is merely one week newer than the very first pre-alpha version (according to the changelog).
It's been more than a year since the initial release of OpenMPT 1.30, and in the meantime we have provided many updates to make it more stable and add a few new features and improve details.
Now we are finally ready to present the first release of OpenMPT 1.31. Again it took us longer than expected, and the number of huge new features is a bit lower than in previous major releases,
but we still hope that it was worth the wait.
Here is a short summary of the most notable new features:
The latest update to OpenMPT 1.30 has been released today.
Unfortunately the previous update was a bit of a dud, introducing several regressions.
These have now been addressed alongside a few other small bugfixes:
