Scream Tracker 3 was a DOS tracker, made by Sami Tammilehto between 1993 and 1994.

On a personal note, this was the first tool I seriously used to make music. Even though the sample resolution's only 8-bit (as with other trackers before it), and you can just about see the screen drawing (it's written in C, not assembly), it was a fun way to discover a love of sampling things around the house, and making little sound collages out of them.
