PMB (presumed to stand for Palladix Music PC-Beeper) is a format supported by Palladix Music System.

Despite targetting the PC Speaker, this format produces pulse waves which can be modulated to the point of volume control and even includes an instrument table.

The original driver is mute under DOSBox 0.74, which may be due to a timer bug already patched on SourceForge.

How to Obtain

PMB files usually have to be manually extracted from game files, a process that is different for pretty much every game that uses them.


All PMB files begin with "PLX" and 254.
