ProTracker Studio Module (PSM) is a digital sample based music format created by Epic Megagames. While it is based off their original PSM (Beta) format, it is very different in structure.

During a Q&A panel at MAG Fest 2016, Alexander Brandon explained that PSM files were composed in Scream Tracker 3 and then converted into PSM using a conversion utility, most likely Convert (To PSM).
