Players:
Name: Platform: Description:
HippoPlayer v2.45 Amiga Multiformat module player (also supports XM playback and other non-Amiga formats) .. My favourite stand-alone player for the Amiga.
XmPlay PC One of the better XM/Mod players for PC.
Don't use WinAmp, at least not with the default plugins for XM/Mod playback!
My favourite stand-alone player for the PC.

Same version as WinTHX but renamed to WinAHX after legal dispute with LucasArts. Associated with .ahx files as default (instead of .thx). Plays both "formats" as they are identical, only differing by the file extension.

Trackers:
Name: Platform: OS Description:
FastTracker v2.08 PC Win9x The good old classic, and still my favourite multichannel tracker (probably because this is the tracker I know the best, and also some nostalgic reasons). A bit technically "outdated" as development stopped in 1997. You might have to set up an "old machine" with Win9x OS to use properly as it doesnt work on newer Windows OS.
