Not to be confused with an early version of the JT format, and PC Speaker MONOTONE tracker MON format, also called MON.

MON is a file extension given by rippers retrospectively to music in Maniacs of Noise's 2nd Amiga driver. Some MON files contain multiple songs.

According to Charles Deenen in an October 1990 interview, the driver was "mainly written" by Frederic Hahn, and Deenen had to arrange all music in it himself.

In an early April 1998 interview, Reyn Ouwehand listed his compositions from memory, including specifically Level 1 Music - Unreal (AMI).
