OpenMPT (Open ModPlug Tracker) is a free and open-source audio module tracker used to create and play music. It is based on ModPlug Tracker, which Olivier Lapicque initially developed.

OpenMPT employs a fast native Windows GUI unlike many other popular trackers that still use DOS-based interfaces. In addition, the application supports various sample and instrument audio formats such as WAV, PAT, and RAW. You can also quickly and easily access and edit MIDI songs.

The software has many features that you can use to edit your music and includes effects like normalization, phase inversion, amplification, and DC offset removal. You can even edit one module in multiple windows spanning across several monitors.


OpenMPT is a capable module tracker that supports many audio formats and is completely free. You will most likely find it an excellent standalone audio tracker as an amateur user and a complementary utility to your professional tools if you are a more advanced user.
