ADL Format files are used in the Westwood Studios PC-DOS games to play sound through an adlib compatible sound card.

Each ADL file contains these blocks:

  1. Song indexes for the following pointer array
  2. Pointer array for sound/music tracks
  3. Pointer array for adlib instruments
  4. Tracks data
  5. Instruments data

Each pointer in array is relative to the size of primary indexes block.
