(For module). A music file format that contains digitized sound samples A .MOD file takes more memory than a MIDI file because a MIDI file contains instructions for making sounds but not the actual sound samples. There are .MOD players for Amiga, PC, and Macintosh computers.
The audio mod ule file originated on the Amiga and takes the approach of defining different instruments and then describing what each does. It is fairly space-efficient, and free software to play MODs is available for WinTel boxes, Macintoshes, UNIX boxes, and even Commodore 128s in addition to the original Amiga.
A format much like MIDI; it is a series of notes and instruments. In addition, Mod files include the samples of the instruments that are being used. Because of this, Mod files are much larger than MIDI files.
