Sonix Music Driver

From ExoticA

General Information

Also know as IFF-SMUS, this is another Electronic Arts standardised music format, created along with 8SVX, ILBM and FTXT as the EA IFF 85 specification. Other than the archaic Aegis Sonix and EA's own Deluxe Music Construction Set (DMCS), almost no software uses this format. Sonix includes some non-standard instrument file formats that are not part of the IFF-SMUS specification. Don Adan created a replayer based on the code from Aegis Sonix in order to play Sonix-specific SMUS music.
