thanks for the response anyway.

almost all music has repeating parts, one could for example write a tool
that detects these parts in a MIDI-file and produces a compressed SMAF file.
however, in my case music is produced from scratch (on server) without
MIDI-source. it is synthetic music that uses the specific features of
MA-3 and is meant to be enjoyed via headphone.
FM-synthesis and SMAF-format seem just right for such "chiptunes", the
only problem is filesize, for a 5 minute track you'll need 100 kb or so
- with very minimalistic music. but subsequence lists would be a perfect
solution to fit even longer songs into the usual 10 kb limit.
