Soundtrakker (Musizier mit mir) from [[New Age Software]] was
programmed by Oliver Mayer ([[ BSC]] ) and was one of the most used music tools on the CPC.
There where three version released:
For [[Weeske]] there was also a specialized Version of Soundtrakker 1.0 with an extra Intro with the Weeske-Logo and a modified manual.
Soundtrakker 1.x and Soundtrakker 128K are different in more aspects than just the amount of memory that is available
. ST-128K is a improvement of ST-1.x, introducing for example additional effects. That's why a new extension (.128 instead of .sng) was introduced for the files that were created using ST-128K. The 1.x Soundtrakkers are unable to read the .128 tunes, while ST-128K is still able to read the .sng files.
Since its release Soundtrakker songs have been used in nearly all demos of these times. [[Tom & Jerry|Tom & Jerry]] released several song collections with a jukebox-like player. [[SymAmp]] allows to manage and play complete Soundtrakker songlists.
