Arkos Tracker on PC

Created by Targhan from Arkos, Arkos Tracker is a music and sound effect composing tool that runs on a PC or Mac (i.e. it is not a CPC tool), but which can be used to create tunes for Amstrad, MSX and Spectrum computers.

It is designed to create musics for AY-3-8910 and YM2149F sound chips (compatible variants).


  • it is the successor of STarKos who ran on real Amstrad CPC.


  • Arkos Tracker 1 and its tools are built using the .NET framework. It is possible to run the tools, but not the Tracker itself, on Linux, using Mono.
  • Arkos Tracker 2 is a rewrite of Arkos Tracker and is available natively for both Windows and Linux. It is written in C++ using the Juce toolkit.
