How to Obtain
To rip JT files, you have to figure out where they start and end on disk or in RAM. Thankfully, all known games are ripped into JT already.

The driver works identically among all games. Apart from obviously targeting a different audio chip, it resembles two of Bjerregaard's Commodore 64 drivers, and the demoscene quoted Bjerregaard in August 1989 and 2002 as writing:
However, over multiple decades, Deenen mentioned having programmed an Amiga driver. In late 1988, he even told Bjerregaard that he was making "the Atari and Amiga routine Editable for you (without PC)".
After finishing Nightdawn (C64) even later in 1988, Bjerregaard wrote himself a new C64 driver, used in Stormlord (C64) (except on Jeroen Tel's Title Music, which uses Deenen's C64 driver). Everyone arranged by typing hexadecimal numbers directly, whose meanings altogether compare as follows:
|Track byte||JT||Bjerregaard's Stormlord (C64)||Deenen's Stormlord (C64) driver|
|00-3F||Play pattern 00-7F||Same as JT||Play pattern 00-3F|
|40-5F||Repeat next pattern|
|80-BF||Transpose down||Same as JT||Transpose up|
|C0-FD||Transpose up||Same as JT|
|FE||Stop entire song||Same as JT||Same as JT|
|FF||Restart entire song||Same as JT||Restart track only|
|Pattern byte||JT||Bjerregaard's Nightdawn (C64)||Deenen's Stormlord (C64) driver|
|00-1F note|| Play new note with duration
If note is 80-FF, disable vibrato delay
|Same as JT|| Set duration using 80-BF (chainable)|
Play note using 00-5F
Can't disable vibrato delay
|20-3F note||Tie from previous note (new note ignored)||Tie to next note (can change)||Tie next using FB|
|40-7F rate newnote oldnote||Same as 00-3F with portamento||Same as JT||Same using FD rate old new|
|80-BF instrumentnumber note||Same as 00-3F with instrument change||Same as JT||Same using C0-DF|
|C0-DF||Play rest||Same as JT||Same using E0-FA,FC,FE|
|E0-FE||Change arpeggio||E0-FE instrument rate new old||Arpeggio using 60-7F|
|FF||End of pattern||Same as JT||Same as JT|
