CoCoTracker version 1.3 requires a Hitachi 6309, but with good reason. It's long been thought to be impossible to play MOD files on the CoCo because of the CPU power required for the job. Now, with the use of creative programming techniques, and using every single dirty trick I could think of, I've been able to push enough CPU power out of a 2Mhz 6309 CoCo3 to get the job done. Not only that, but the program also has a nice and very fast graphics display to go along with the 4 channel digitized audio playback.
This latest version also gives you the option to output the sound through an Orchestra-90 Pak, for higher fidelity stereo sound. It also lets you load MOD files from double sided &/or 80 track disks with regular RS-DOS.
