A downloadable chiptune tracker for Windows

Beware of the CAT-O-METER!

klystrack is a tracker for making C64/NES/Amiga-style chiptunes on a modern platform.  It can be used to create audio for games (Gravitus Minus uses the audio engine for music and sound effects).

Features

Sound

Sequencer

  • Tracker with free positioning of patterns
  • Pattern transpose
  • Pattern length is not fixed
  • Hard limit of 32 channels but this can be raised (just ask if you need more... sounds crazy, though)
  • Fully themeable, includes half dozen themes

Effects

  • Stereo chorus
  • SNES-style multitap echo
  • Bit crusher/decimator

Export

  • Own custom format with a tiny playback library to be used in games, demos etc.
  • Export as .WAV
  • Export each track as separate .WAV's
  • Export wavetable items as .WAV's (use klystrack to create one-cycle waveforms for other synths!)

Import

Thanks

klystrack would not be as cool without help from iLKke (responsible for most of the gfx), people sending ideas and code and most of all the cool people who made cool tunes!
