klystrack is an application for creating music reminiscent of the style of music from 8-bit computers or, chiptunes. It is a complete package; included are a "tracker" style sequencer and a built-in synthesizer capable of a wide range sounds - including but not limited to basic subtractive synthesis, frequency modulation and sample playback. Sounds can be easily beefed up by using the effect chain. It is possbile to import a handful of file formats, including Protracker .MOD, Fasttracker 2 .XM, the Cave Story music format (.ORG) and Rob Hubbard Commodore 64 SID files. Tunes can be easily exported as a single mixdown .WAV or separate tracks or you can simply use the playback library to use the klystrack files in your own games and other software.
For versions of Ubuntu between 14.04 LTS (Trusty Tahr) and 15.10 (Wily Werewolf), as well as Ubuntu flavours that don’t include snap by default, snap can be installed from the Ubuntu Software Centre by searching for snapd.
Alternatively, snapd can be installed from the command line:
sudo apt update
sudo apt install snapd
Either log out and back in again, or restart your system, to ensure snap’s paths are updated correctly.
