What is an F2R file?
An F2R file is a linear-format audio module created by Farandole Composer, a music tracker for MS-DOS. It contains synthesized music. This music is comprised of note patterns, sound samples, and other data.
Farandole Composer was one of many music trackers available for MS-DOS. It allowed users to create synthesized music that contained up to 16 channels. Typically, this music was saved in the .FAR audio module format. However, some modules were instead saved in the F2R or .F3R formats.
How to open an F2R file
