No special format, but specifies a memory location.
I have a printed listing in front of me, from the documentation. It
specifies bytes $40-$43 get some data, then a set of tables at $4400,
$4500, $4600 and $4700. It then sets the port at $FF20, and loads the
program beginning at the fixed address of $4800. All memory from $5000 to
$8000 is assigned to the compiled music.
Since I never learned about CoCo disks, I don't know if that's the issue.
The BASIC is a loader, handles data storage, and jumps to the compile,
play, and other routines. The music programs are in ASCII, but the compiled
programs are done in binary.
I can send a copy of the printed dox if that will help.
