AdLib Convert, or just Convert, is a simple command line DOS program that converts AdLib Visual Composer ROL files into MUS (AdLib) files.

Usage

Place your ROL file with INS files in the same directory, then type:

convert YOURFILE.ROL NEWBANK.SND NEWFILE.MUS

AdLib Convert will convert ROL file into MUS, and also it will scan current directory for required INS instrument files and create new SND (AdLib) file with .SND or .TIM extension. You'll need to use Bank Manager program for converting existing BNK instrument bank file into INS files.

Also you may use an existing SND (AdLib) file with instruments. If all required instruments are present in the file, converter should not scan the directory for INS files.
