Do you know MOD music?
It’s a lightweight music format, intermediate between sampled/recorded music (MP3, WAVE) and synthetized sounds like what you find on the GameBoy and other old school game consoles. The file contains sampled sequence for each note, and the mod player plays them in sequence according to rules. This avoids a lot of redundancy for similar notes. This sort of music was very successful when computers were not powerful enough to play fully sampled music.
And now, this guy made a MOD player for the stellaris launchpad!
Congrats to Ronen K. !
