BMus is an official name of the sound software for the SNES, created by David Ross and Bill Williams, and it was developed by Sculptured Software.

BMus was part of Berlioz, Sculptured Software's sound effects and music generation package. According to Mark Knight, it was the name of the sound software he used.

BMus allowed the composers to generate and edit complete musical scores, and transmit the music to the SNES at any point.

It is estimated that close to nearly 100 SNES games used BMus for music and sound.


The following composers used BMus:


The source code for BMus is discovered in the source code for Tarzan: Lord of the Jungle.

Doommaster1994 has "blank" disks that most likely have the source code, but needs help dumping them.
