Schism Tracker is an editor and player for tracked music (IT, XM, S3M, MOD, etc.), heavily based on the look and feel of the DOS program Impulse Tracker.


If you have a USB keyboard and mouse attached, they should work identically to the standard PC version. The Wiimote works like a mouse and also provides basic playback functionality.

(Details here.)

  • Using pbsds's spiffy icon. Thanks!
  • No longer crashes at startup when loaded with Bannerbomb. (Still crashes at exit.)
