Coming from tracker developer veteran Reduz (of ChibiTracker and CheeseTracker fame), the first alpha release of ZyTrax, a new cross-platform tracker with plugin and automation curve support, was released today.

Is this alpha release supposed to be at least somewhat functional? It does sound cool for sure.

Sure, but you will need some plugins to get started. There is no built-in sampler which is part of the facelift concept.

I have seen many tracker projects being started over the years.

Some become inactive after some time, others only receive minimal updates.

There's only a handful of mature trackers with up to date functionality out there which are actively developed. OpenMPT is one of them.

I find it hard to believe that people invest their energy in creating new trackers rather than contributing to existing tracker projects where they have a foundation to start from.

Again, this is quite a harsh reply. In addition to that, I think you are missing the point that reduz has already authored several popular trackers (ChibiTracker, CheeseTracker, etc.). If someone knows why they want to try making a new tracker with features not seen in other trackers before, then it's certainly him.

Ok, didn't know who the person behind this project is.
