About 3 weeks ago an MSX-AUDIO BIOS for Philips Music Module was released, making the popular Philips Music Module fully MSX-AUDIO compatible. After it's release the reactions were enthusiastic, but there clearly was a demand for a way to let the Music Module handle FM-BASIC music as well.

Now, BiFi has released a tool that does just this. After running _MUS2AUD, a CALL MUSIC statement is automatically replaced to CALL AUDIO, making the MSX-AUDIO play the FM-BASIC music (instead).

Latok: thx dude. It was quite educational writing it.

btw, all this is done at run-time, so please don't expect a magic replace when you're doing a LIST when you haven't run it yet and it only replaces a real _MUSIC. A _MUSICBOX will remain the same.
