What is a FUR file?

A FUR file is an audio module created by tildearrow Furnace, a multiplatform chiptune tracker. It contains a song that is meant to be played with a retro sound chip or video game console. These songs are typically comprised of multiple audio channels, which contain a series of notes and effects applied to those notes.
