Gravis Ultrasound was best used to play amiga music on pc. I think everyone that walk the extra mile to get a GUS do want to make sure he listen to a module player that use the actual hardware.
So I started a list of player that use the GUS. Now I have to check out if they really use the gf1 or if they are just soft.

✔️/❌ capacamod 3.14
✔️/✔️ DMP 4.00

I think this is final update for players, there is certainly more out there but even on that list some just barely work and make me wonder why I bother. I found this project more time consuming than I expected so I will stop here, but I will certainly try to add some of the major trackers as I think it was a good idea that Darry suggested.
--- Update 1:
dmp 4.00: changed dmpc 2.6 to dmp 4.00... I mistook the companion with the player.
Galaxy Music Player 2.12: hardware, frequency ramp with channel increase
Inertia Player 1.22: hardware, frequency ramp with channel increase
Open Cubic Player 2.6.0pre6: software, work without devwGUS which is used for midi playback. It can play 64 channels .it, but maybe it's a kind of nna trick. But why support midi on wavetable and not mod? Still in investigation, hence the italic, any advise would be appreciated.
capacamod 3.14: source
XTC-PLAY 0.97: info in player, why would the player tell you about samples gus ram usage if it was to use software mixing.
Added metal and fplay
--- Update 2:
Open Cubic Player 2.6.0pre6: I was in a hurry to get back and change it to HW after reading thoroughly the doc at cubic.org. Them hardware replayer is so well done and versatile it could be confused with a software one. You can also fallback to software player. So I changed it to HW support and will move along.
DMP 4.00: From the documentation.
--- Update 3:
FPLAY 0.93: From the documentation.
Gusmod 2.11: From the documentation.
JMP 1.00: From the documentation.
Morgul Player 1.49: From the documentation.
DMP/OCP: Edit list to show they can also play in software using gus.
--- Update 4: back from vacation update
P669GU0/P669: gus memory shown on info screen
FAR Music System: Ultraclick present
WOW ][: REMOVED, dont support GUS at all
ULTRA TRACKER I.VI: REMOVED, Is a tracker that only have the player finished, too buggy to tell anyway.
Mxm Play v1.5: ADDED, info from documentation and src code.
Real Tracker v1.07: ADDED, frequency stick a 44.1 on gus, can be changed on sb.
The Module Player for GUS 0.98B: ADDED, gus memory shown on info screen.

Universal Module Player V5.99 Rev. D: ADDED, gus support is screwed since some version, use emulation.
Judas 2.06: ADDED, documentation and source code.
Genmod 1.3: ADDED
AmoebaSoft MOD 0.90: ADDED
--- Update 5:
GenMod 1.3 : use the BellWhistleSoundBoard (BWSB) engine which is opensource so it was easy to check out
amoebasoft 0.90 : for the source code
mpxplay : can only play module from libmodule and even only support gus max (probably because of the codec on it), I left it on the list since I often hear ppl being confused by this one.
metal 0.25 : REMOVED I can't even find that thing anymore
pmp 2.31 : not clear but the player dont care bout command line like mono/stereo and samplerate change, so I assume it's hw.
tta669 : from the doc
mod master xt 2.2 : ADDED from the doc and user ram
mdp 1.1 : Use gus ram and refuse to play if sample is bigger than 1024kb
--- Update 6:
