Band Form

The following notation shows the format of the top-level chunk, or form, of a band file. Band forms can also be contained in other chunks.

  [<guid-ck>]   // GUID for band
  [<vers-ck>]   // Optional version information
  [<UNFO-list>] // Name, author, copyright information, comments
  <lbil-list>   // Instruments

<guid-ck>, <vers-ck>, <UNFO-list>

For information on these three chunks, see Common Chunks.


The data is contained in an array of lists.

<lbil-list> -> LIST( 'lbil'

Each instrument is described in a list that has the following format:

<lbin-list> -> LIST( 'lbin'

Within the instrument list, the following chunk contains a header describing the instrument:

<bins-ck> -> bins( <DMUS_IO_INSTRUMENT> )

The instrument list can also contain <DMRF-list>, which in this case is a reference to a DLS file. See Reference List.
