AdLib MIDI Format

The AdLib MIDI Format is an Ad Lib music format, based on the standard MIDI format. It is derived from ROL Format and have compatible specification for playback. The format has a custom header, but the actual music data mostly in standard MIDI notation. Despite this, it appears that it was never intended to be played on a MIDI device, as the patch numbers refer to indices into a companion OPL instrument bank in AdLib Timbre Bank Format.

In this respect it is similar to the CMF Format, which also stores OPL music in MIDI notation, but unlike CMF this format keeps the instruments in a separate file.

Format documentation is available here.
