Atari SAP music format is a format that stores music data from Atari 8-bit computers that uses the Atari POKEY sound chip. Most popular tunes for Atari 8-bits were written between 1981-1987.

This format is similar to the SID, SPC or NSF formats, in that it is a music data format which is supported by a player, which emulates the central processing unit and sound hardware of the Atari 8-bit computers (XL/XE), in order to play the music from the Atari games.

SAP format can be replayed by a SAP player currently available for many platforms.
