Accolade's MUS (Music) format is similar to standard MIDI, but it can be altered to play on various audio devices including the AdLib, AdLib Gold 1000, General MIDI, PC Speaker, Pro AudioSpectrum, Sound Blaster, Sound Blaster Pro, Windows Audio, and in addition, the SNES, and Genesis.

It was also adopted by Horror Soft / Adventure Soft for their Adventure Game Operating System (AGOS) engine.

This format has a successor, GMF format.
