In case by "conventional" you mean a score, well, that really doesn't work very well together at all with how trackers work. There might be occasionall odd one with a staff view in addition to the normal note grid, but I can't remember any off the top of my head that have something like that. I think OpenCubicPlayer had an experimental score display, but even that wasn't very accurate and well, it's just a player and not a tracker. If you want to compose a score, you should look out for the traditional programs that do that.

I've got to bump this thread even though it's a few months old. The first "tracker" I ever used was something called "KingMod" which was exactly that - a mod editor using a musical score instead of tracking. It was apparently so unloved that I can't even find a screenshot of it now. I think I made one god-awful song on it and then moved on to ST3 or Composer 669, whichever I found next. I would have been around 13~14 at the time so I must have gotten it from a BBS.

Good luck finding a copy these days though. If you do track it down post back here, I wanna see how terrible it was. :)

Actually, KingMod is pretty easy to find, like most trackers.

Wow, blast from the past! I guess I only ever looked for a screenshot and not the actual prog.

This thing isn't nearly as bad as I thought it was - I guess I just sucked at composing at the time (no surprise there!) Still pretty clunky though. It's a pretty decent program that answers a question no one asked!

I'm half tempted to upload it to Pouet just to be obnoxious.
