Screamtracker 3 and Impulse Tracker
Is there anything for Linux that will play Screamtracker 3 modules and Impulse Tracker files? I have some music I wanna hear while under Linux. It's all in Screamtrackers and Impulse Trackers, and I have found nothing that will play 'em...yet.

Hi buddy,

on my PC I'm playing some .mod files coming from my old ATARI 520ST, made via one of the so many 4-channels soundtrackers.

To play this I installed XMMS and, if I remember well I just had to add a plugin. It works perfectly. Pico bello !

That isn't Screamtracker 3 modules or Impulse Tracker files, is it? XMMS doesn't seem to handle them, and I haven't found anything on them yet.

The XMMS-XMP plugin plays most of the XM/S3M stuff I got right.

I just happened upon this post answering a similar question. I hope you have found the answer to your question by now as this post is several years old, but I figured I put my 2 cents in anyway. The best luck I have had with playing MOD files is in terminal based programs, CPplayer and Mikmod. CPplayer (think that is the name) is a port from an old DOS player. I don't care for CPplayer primarily because I find the interface difficult to navigate. The quality of CPplayer's output has always been lacking, in my opinion. Mikmod is designed to play in *nix environment. I use that. Plays IT and S3M (and a ton of other formats) just fine. The Mikmod interface is much easier to deal with and playback has always been very good.
