Mach 3, along with later Turbo Cup and Disc from the same developers utilized an early in-house music tracker technology, which let them compose soundtrack comprised of digital samples that took up little space, unlike a continuous recording. Most of the popular 'tracker' software didn't get much use until 1990 or later, and the earliest examples of in-game usage was also in 1987 in Amegas. What's even more impressive is that the DOS release used a PC-speaker to play the tracker music and samples. Ultra Force put out a Mach 3 audio player around 1991, which could play all digitized sound from the game.


The game bears some resemblance to the arcade laserdisc game M.A.C.H. 3, but the two are unrelated.
