I don't think it does; it is for mod (tracker) files, and the web
page claims:
* Support for the following modules formats:
669 (Composer 669, Unis 669), AMF (DSMI Advanced Module Format),
AMF (ASYLUM Music Format V1.0), APUN (APlayer), DSM (DSIK internal
format), FAR (Farandole Composer), GDM (General DigiMusic), IT
(Impulse Tracker), IMF (Imago Orpheus), MOD (15 and 31 instruments),
MED (OctaMED), MTM (MultiTracker Module editor), OKT (Amiga
Oktalyzer), S3M (Scream Tracker 3), STM (Scream Tracker), STX
(Scream Tracker Music Interface Kit), ULT (UltraTracker), UNI
(MikMod), XM (FastTracker 2)
