Its name is a tribute to the 1987 Amiga program Ultimate Soundtracker which is regarded as the first program of this type, while its user interface mostly resembles and indeed functionally mimics Fast Tracker, one of many popular MS-DOS-based audio trackers, supporting saving in its file formats. It generally renders playback using the OpenCP (à la Cubic Player) engine. SoundTracker uses GTK+ (version 1, now succeeded by version 2) as its widget toolkit, but an unofficial port to GTK+ 2 exists by contributors. For many years, SoundTracker was one of the very few mature audio trackers available for Unix-like operating systems.
