SOAMC= END GAME: Music Format headers
in All about SOAMC= | Thursday, May 10, 2018 | 10:55


In the following list we will try to get an overview of typical identifiers we can use to detect type of music formats.


The human readable or bytes as HEX presented below will be hunted for through the entire file, if it was compressed it dont matter as other tools would have first decrunched them.

Normally the bytes are located in the beginning of potentional music files, but their positions are marked below. The byte postions (0-11) and (1080-1083) are quickly found in my latest SOTDS database, but where needed, I have marked alternative bytes (HEX/ASC) where we can combine with other positions for that specific format. When we have detected a potentional hit of the bytes below, it will be tagged and will be included in the actual ripping of music from a datafile, as-is or from an excutable file.

We intend to use various methods of automatic ripping, but most likely Eagleplayer's own EagleRippers engines will be used along with our own tools.


Tracker Based and its clones - 4 bytes located at pos 1080-1083
M.K.
M!K!
M&K
2\0
PATT
NSMS
LARD
FLT4
FLT8
EXO4
EXO8
PLS.
FEST
FIST
N.T.
4CHN
5CHN
6CHN
8CHN
9CHN
10CH
12CH
14CH
16CH
28CH
OKTA
OCTA
CD81
CD61
FA04
TDZ4

Note: Some of these may be just hacked by composer to disallow ripping, but will anyhow be included into manual checking queue to determine if that format really exists or its simply a regular "M.K." tag.


A.M. Composer - 12 bytes located at pos 0-11
HEX: 414d432056312e3220524550

ASC: N/A
STATUS: There is only 1 known songfile of this format, so verification is difficult without either more songs or the actual music software. Will try different cuts of those bytes to see if we can discover any more songs.

Art&Magic - 8 bytes located at pos 0-7
HEX: 48e7fffe4bf900dff00041fa
ASC: N/A
STATUS: There is only 1 known songfile of this format, so verification is difficult without either more songs or the actual music software. Will try different cuts of those bytes to see if we can discover any more songs.

Beathoven Synthesizer - 8 bytes located at pos 0-7
