MiniBAE is a mobile sample-based audio engine developed by Beatnik, Inc. from 1991 to 2001, succeeded by MobileBAE. Until 1997, it was called SoundMusicSys, appearing in many successful video games for Mac OS. [1] Since the shutdown of Beatnik, Inc. in 2009, the source code has been released under a BSD license. [2] The soundbanks are in a proprietary '.hsb' (Headspace Sound Bank) format. The engine is most notable for being used in Nokia phones made from 2002 to 2009.
