Technical

All ORC files have the same format as RMI, but with some differences:

  • ORC files don't use DLS sample banks.
  • There is only one WAV track with all digital audio samples.
  • Sample playback is controlled by Sequencer-Specific events in the MIDI sequence and by "voyl" chunk in the WAV track.
