Soundtrakker (Musizier mit mir) was programmed by Oliver Mayer ([[BSC]]) from [[New Age Software]] . On UK was programmed distributed by Oliver Mayer ([[BSCSentinel Software]]) and . 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.
Under some circumstances ST-128K is not compatible with a improvement of ST-1.x tunes. When using very short patterns in an ST-1.x song, the song can be messed up in ST-128Kintroducing for example additional effects.
