.a2m File Extension

Developer: AdLib
File type: Module File
You're here because you have a file that has a file extension ending in .a2m. Files with the file extension .a2m can only be launched by certain applications. It's possible that .a2m files are data files rather than documents or media, which means they're not meant to be viewed at all.

what is a .a2m file?

The A2M file extension is a data file format associated to AdLib Tracker 2, program used for tracking audio. The A2M file extension and Adlib Tracker 2 software were developed by AdLib. These files are sound modules or song formats that contain multiple tracks and musical scores with play back sound samples. The software is used for the OPL3 FM-chip soundblaster cards supported with four operator instruments, vast selection of importable song, percussion mode and advanced macro editor. Adlib Tracker 2 is a DOS based program but it can be opened with Nullsoft Winamp Media Player 5.6 with AdPlug plugin in Microsoft Windows-based systems. Aside from A2M format, the software can also load A2P, A2T, AMD, DFM and other song formats. To ensure the effectiveness of the software, the computer must handle ISA (Industry Standard Architecture) cards and install a TMT Pascal Lite v3.90 or TASM v5.00.

a word of warning

Be careful not to rename the extension on .a2m files, or any other files. This will not change the file type. Only special conversion software can change a file from one file type to another.

what is a file extension?

A file extension is the set of three or four characters at the end of a filename; in this case, .a2m. File extensions tell you what type of file it is, and tell Windows what programs can open it. Windows often associates a default program to each file extension, so that when you double-click the file, the program launches automatically. When that program is no longer on your PC, you can sometimes get an error when you try to open the associated file.
