Natively that would take very little processor time and mean that 030 Amigas could have music playing. OK, there would be small jitters when sample loading would have to stop whilst the next screen is displayed, but this would be possible would it not?
Yes it would, I did it about 4 years ago for my DOTT port
Very time consuming though to convert all of those files by hand, it would need to be automated to be practical.
I went from MIDI to MUS (same as DOOM) for DOTT
Another DOTT port used MIDI to MOD
