;---------------------------------------------------------------------------
;Calling method and speed
;---------------------------------------------------------------------------
;This a very important part to do correctly.
;Here you specify what hardware interrupt to use for calling the music 
;driver.
;
;These options are available;
;dc.b  '!Vnn'       VBL (nn=frequency)
;dc.b  'TAnnn',0    Timer A (nnn=frequency)
;dc.b  'TBnnn',0    Timer B (nnn=frequency)
;dc.b  'TCnnn',0    Timer C (nnn=frequency)
;dc.b  'TDnnn',0    Timer D (nnn=frequency)
;
;VBL           - Is NOT recommended for use. There is no change made to the 
;                VBL frequency so it will play at the current VBL speed.
;
;Timer A       - Is only recommended if Timer C is not accurate enough. Use 
;                with caution, many songs are using Timer A for special
;                effects.
;
;Timer B       - Is only recommended if Timer C is not accurate enough. Use
;                with caution, many songs are using Timer B for special
;                effects.
;
;Timer C       - The default timer if nothing is specified. Default speed
;                is 50Hz. Use Timer C playback wherever possible. It hooks
;                up to the OS 200Hz Timer C interrupt and leaves all other
;                interrupts free for special effects.
;
;                For songs with a replay speed uneven of 200Hz, SND Player
;                uses a smart routine to correct for the wrong speed. The
;                result is usually very good. If the result isn't good 
;                enough,then consider another Timer, but be careful with
;                Timer collisions!
;
;Timer D       - Is only recommended if Timer C is not accurate enough. 
;                Use with caution, many songs are using Timer D for 
;                special effects.

;---------------------------------------------------------------------------
; Default Tune Tag (!#??)
;---------------------------------------------------------------------------
; The !# Tag is followed by a two character ascii value signifying the
; default sub-tune to be played. If this tag is null then a sub-tune of
; 1 is assumed. 
;---------------------------------------------------------------------------

;---------------------------------------------------------------------------
; Sub Tune Names (!#SN)
;---------------------------------------------------------------------------
; The !#SN Tag is followed by a table of word offsets pointing to the ascii
; text of sub tune names. The base offset is the actaul !#SN tag. See 
; example header below. 
;---------------------------------------------------------------------------


;---------------------------------------------------------------------------
; TIME Tag
;---------------------------------------------------------------------------
; The TIME tag is followed by 'x' short words ('x' being the number of 
; tunes). Each word contains the length of each sub tune in seconds. If the
; word is null then it is assumed that the tune endlessly loops.
;---------------------------------------------------------------------------


;---------------------------------------------------------------------------
; HDNS Tag
;---------------------------------------------------------------------------
; The HDNS signifies the end of the SNDH header and the start of the actual 
; music data. This tag must be on an even boundary.
;---------------------------------------------------------------------------
