The MSX-Audio is the fairly large granddaddy of musical MSX extensions, quite comparable with the Music Module from Philips. Thanks to MSX user Ravazzi, who lent out his FS-CA1 manual to Antoniutti and sd_snatcher, the original MSX-Audio BASIC manual is now available online.

It is also useful for those with Philips Music Modules or Toshibas HX-MU900 upgraded to have the MSX-Audio BIOS. Smile

Mainly because both quality and size gets worse.

The PNGs sum up 2.4MB, much better than the 3.5MB of the PDF. Also the PNG files are compressed with a lossless algorithm, resulting in a much higher quality. Smile

And PNG's has that "Alpha Blending" issue too ... That is very cool for games!
