What is a 1TE file?

A 1TE file is a music engine that can be used with 1tracker, a chiptune music tracker. It contains settings that specify the audio channels a user can edit while creating a 1tracker module. 1tracker includes many default 1TE files, which users can switch between from the Select engine menu.

Shiru, aka shiru8bit, developed 1tracker to allow chiptune creators to utilize multiple 1-bit music engines within the same music tracker. Primarily, these 1-bit engines are designed to emulate the audio capabilities of the ZX Spectrum, an 8-bit home computer that Sinclair Research released in 1982.

Each 1tracker engine, or 1TE file, defines the channels to which a user can add (and edit) notes while creating a 1tracker module (.1TM file). It also contains other channel-related settings and a description of the engine's capabilities. 1tracker stores many default 1TE files in its engines directory. Users who create or download custom 1tracker engines should also store their 1TE files in this directory, so they can easily load them within 1tracker.
