A section of a channel. The first column is the notes column which keeps track of the note (AG) and the octave (09). Between the note and the octave, there is either a dash () or a number sign (#). The number sign says that the note is sharp. The second column is the sample/instrument column. This column says what sample or instrument number is used to play the note. The third column is the volume column. This is the volume (in the 064 range) that the note is played at. In recent trackers, this can also be used for limited effects. The fourth column is the effects column. This starts with the number of the effect (for example, 3 is slidetonote) and ends with a number which is how the effect will operate. 34A would mean that the sound would slide into this note with a speed of 4A.
