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:
* Soundtrakker 1.0
* Soundtrakker 1.1
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, introducingfor 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 Soundtrakkersare 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 ST-1.x tunes. When using very short patterns in an ST-1.x song, the song can be messed up in ST-128K.
Since its release
SoundTrakker songs have been used in nearly all demos of these times. [[Tom & Jerry]] released several song collections with a jukebox-like player. [[SymAmp]] allows to manage and play complete SoundTrakker songlists.
