.abc File Extension

Developer: Chris Walshaw
File type: abc2mtex Music Notation File
You're here because you have a file that has a file extension ending in .abc. Files with the file extension .abc can only be launched by certain applications. It's possible that .abc files are data files rather than documents or media, which means they're not meant to be viewed at all.

what is a .abc file?

An abc2mtex music notation file contains plain text data associated to musical notations of songs, and the abc2mtex program can be used to transform these abc2mtex music notation files into digital music and sound clips. There are other applications that can be used to convert these plain text notations into digital audio data, though the abc2mtex program is the original software developed for this conversion process. The content of an abc2mtex music notation file is integrated with plain text formatting specifications and integrated with text data encoding standards used to store digital music and song notation text content in the ABC file format. These abc2mtex music notation files are appended with the .abc extension, and the ABC plain text music notation format was developed by Chris Walshaw.

how to open a .abc file?

a word of warning

Be careful not to rename the extension on .abc 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, .abc. 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.
