So, as the title says, I would like to know a good way to convert tracker files (*.mod, *.xm, *.s3m, et cetera) to a format like *.mp3 or *.ogg.

A command-line solution would be preferred.

ffmpeg supports each of those formats. You could convert all of them with a bash loop, such as for i in *.mod; do ffmpeg -i "$i" -b:a 320k "${i%mod}mp3"; done
