Miles Sound System (MSS), formerly known as Audio Interface Library (AIL), is a sound software system primarily for video games and used mostly as an alternative for low-end audio chipsets. It uses little CPU time while providing adequate audio output. It was originally a middleware driver library for soundcards to use in DOS applications when no viable alternative was available. RAD Game Tools acquired the technology from Miles Design in 1995.

AIL version 2 for DOS has been released by John Miles as open-source code. The package can be found on his personal site (KE5FX) and contains code for both real-mode and protected-mode programs.
