Common Platforms: Atari 8-Bit Computers
Common file types: SAP

Where to download tunes

Atari SAP Music Archive (ASMA) - Complete resource of all Atari's SAP music, inspired by C64's HVSC a lot. The site is stable almost 5 years, and is the best for Atari 8-bit music at the long time.

Some more thoughts

This format was made in the way as SID, SPC or NSF format - so it is music data format which is supported by the players, which emulate the CPU and sound hardware of the Atari 8-bit computers (XL/XE), in order to play the music from the Atari games.
