Module (MOD) is a digital sample-based music format created by Karsten "Obi" Obarski for use with his program, the Ultimate SoundTracker, however, the format is probably best known for it's association with ProTracker. Over the years several other trackers would use the MOD extension, with variations to the format. Some of the other common trackers to use the MOD extension include StarTrekker, FastTracker, Fasttracker II, and ChipTracker. Module files have an *.mod extension, but compressed MOD files will have the extension *.mdz.

To understand the difference between modules and MIDI formats, see digital music comparison.
