You should not use streamed music (aka .mp3, .m4a, .ogg) in your games because it's utterly inappropriate, slow and inefficent. ASlib is a ridiculously outdated library that should never be used in new projects.

Maxmod supports MOD, XM, S3M and IT; all of which are tracked music formats. It is impossible to convert streamed music to tracked formats, because the latter needs information about the notes, effects and samples.
