4If you want to send some songs, they should be already converted to SAP
5format and should include all the information needed (author, name, date,
6number of songs). If you're unsure about any information needed, you can
7send us the music as well, maybe we can find the info together. If you don't
8know how to create SAP files, send me the binary file with the INIT and PLAY
9addresses and memory location where the song has to be loaded.
