VividTracker is an Amiga Protracker compatible music maker app. You can load, save, edit, and create new ProTracker modules.

New version 2.4
Old version 2.3
Release Notes - MIDI input support is improved. You will now see VividTracker as a virtual MIDI port in other apps such as AUM. This means you can use VividTracker as an Inter-App Audio synth from AUM. In AUM, C-1 to B-3 are used for playing notes of the same sample, while C-4 and up triggers different samples (e.g. C-4 plays sample 1, C#4 plays sample 2, D-4 plays sample 3, etc). The note played by each sample is given by the default note of each sample on SCREEN 4A. - VividTracker now supports Audiobus 3.

Bug fixes & improvements: * Orientation bug fixed. * Improved connectivity for iPhone 8 / 8plus models. * Fixed bug that was causing the "Calibrating" popup message to display incorrectly as "No Skwitch".

Should this occur, try to identify the magnetic source (loudspeakers/steel bolts/fixings) and try restarting the app and setting up again somewhere away from the sources.
