(module) The filename extension for a sampled music file
file is composed of digitised sound samples, arranged in
patterns to create a song. There are .MOD players for most

.MOD files differ from .MID (MIDI
) files in that they
contain sound samples. This allows each song to use different
sounds but it also puts more load on the CPU

MIDI file, since more data must be processed for each note. A

which handles samples instead of the CPU.
Module files come in various formats including .MOD. Formats
evolved from .MOD include .S3M, .FAR and .669. Most contain
improvements on .MODs.
