Note Block Song file (or NBS) is a free digital audio format, created for the program Minecraft Note Block Studio. This is the first and the only software to use this format.

The main scope of this format is to keep song structure to import in into Minecraft game as blocks.

The NBS files are designed to use OGG, WAV or MP3 files, so this isn't independent audio format as such, but contains something like patterns with samples outside. For this case, it acts like TFMX with external instruments. Therefore we can call NBS format as tracker music format.
