The SAP format, like SID or NSF, contains the machine code instructions for creating the sound effects and music for an 8 bit Atari program. The 8-bit Atari computers, as well as early Atari arcade cabinents, contained a sound chip called POKEY (POtentiometer and KEYboard). The chip, developed by Doug Neubauer, was responsible for converting the machine code from the game cartridges into audio data to be sent to speakers.

SAP stands for Slight Atari Player, which is also the name of the first emulated Atari music player.
