Arkos Tracker 2
The ultimate musical tool for Amstrad CPC, Atari ST, ZX Spectrum, MSX, Oric, Apple 2, Vectrex and Sharp MZ-700.

Arkos Tracker 2 is the evolution of STarKos (an Amstrad CPC Tracker) and Arkos Tracker 1 (A Windows-only Tracker), but improves them greatly. Some features:
* Cross-platform (Windows, Linux, Mac).
* Manage both standard PSG sound and samples without any distinction!
* Support of AY-3-8912 and YM2149F.
* Unlimited PSG count! You can create standard 3-channel songs, or 6, 9, 32 or more if you want!
* 4 columns of effects per channel, including Arpeggio (via a table or inline value), Pitch, slide, glide, change Arpeggio/Pitch/Instrument speed, etc.
* Import from MIDI, AKS (Arkos Tracker 1), SKS (STarKos), 128 (BSC’s Soundtrakker), WYZ (Wyz Tracker), MOD, VT2 (Vortex Tracker 2), CHP (Chip’n’sfx).
* 4 players, from versatile to extremely fast, or slower but less memory-consuming.
* Support of specific hardware: PlayCity (CPC), Spectrum TurboSound, SpecNext, MSX Darky and MSX FPGA (AKY player only).
* Real-time communication with your hardware possible, to listen or compose just like on the real thing!
* Sound effect support, shared among songs.
* ROM players available: no more auto-modifying code, a small buffer is used.
* Exports can be assembly sources or binaries: it makes it easy to integrate the songs in your production.
* Sources can be converted to any assembler.
* Each PSG can have its own frequency (including custom ones).
* Replay rate from 12Hz to 300Hz, or custom.
* A song is composed of sub-songs, all sharing the same instruments. Helps you save even more memory!
* All the limitations of past AY/YM trackers are blown to pieces with Arkos Tracker 2!

The software is currently in alpha version.

Main limitations:

* No copy/paste/undo/redo everywhere (but present in the Pattern Viewer).

Additional Info
Here is Arkos Tracker 2, a Music Traker targeted toward CPC music

This pnd use box86. It seems to works fine, but some multi-chip music (the one with 9 track) seems to not always produce sound. I suspect this is a CPU Power issue (as they does sound ok on a Pi4). Maybe with some more box86 optimisations...
