The Cloud is used as the background music of the Multimedia Player demo that comes with the software. Original THECLOUD.ROL file was converted by ROL to CMF utility.

While being used for presenting the Sound Blaster 16 capabilities, the player did not utilize OPL3 features, such as stereo sound, dual banking (up to 20 FM voices), and 4OP instruments.

The song is named THECLOUD.CMF and is located in the MMPLAY folder.
