My aesthetic: when tracker musicians put credits or poetry or ascii art in the song's sample names, and then you make a new song by loading samples out of a bunch of different songs, so your sample list looks like a Burroughs cut-up.


S3M facts: the S3M sample structure is 80 bytes, so even though it's a binary format, you can open it an 80-column text viewer and the sample names will be a contiguous readable block onscreen.

Impulse Tracker stores more info per sample but shortens the sample name, to retain this feature.
