.aria File Extension

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

what is a .aria file?

The ARIA file extension is a data format associated to Chipsounds. ARIA files and to Chipsounds were developed by Plogue. The ARIA extension was taken from the ARIA Engine, which is the software that drives the sound generation for Plogue's technologies. These binary files contain advanced sound settings for chip music saved for future use. MIDI files are in charge of playing back the presently loaded chip setup and any other features (e.g. Ambience reverb) activated in the player. They are used for saving and loading audio presets. The software produced audio by eight vintage computer systems. It is used for generating sounds similar to those on older computers, arcades, and game consoles. There are three ways to use Plogue chipsounds: as a plug-in within a sequencer, with a supported tracker program, or ‘live’ as a standalone application. Files in ARIA format can be opened with Plogue chipsounds in Mac Os and Microsoft Windows based Systems.

how to open a .aria file?

Launch a .aria file, or any other file on your PC, by double-clicking it. If your file associations are set up correctly, the application that's meant to open your .aria file will open it. It's possible you may need to download or purchase the correct application. It's also possible that you have the correct application on your PC, but .aria files aren't yet associated with it. In this case, when you try to open a .aria file, you can tell Windows which application is the correct one for that file. From then on, opening a  .aria file will open the correct application.

Plogue chipsounds

Plogue chipsounds was also developed by Plogue Arts and Technology and it is known as a software synth that allows users to turn their VST host, etc. into a console for classic video games. This serves as a gaming time machine that will transport gamers back into the world of classic video games and 80s arcade. Plogue chipsounds is mainly used for the emulation of 15 vintage 8-bit era sound chips to their very small idiosyncrasies. This software also has the ability to reproduce the sound effect tricks and other musical techniques that were just accidentally discovered. This software features a five-page user interface with a Controls page that offers a wave sequencer and arpeggiator preset-saving wherein the wave sequencer is responsible for crescendos and note flutters. Through the use of Plogue chipsounds, users will find it possible to find chip emulations from favorite games such as Atari ST, Nintendo Game Boy, VIC-20, Nintendo Entertainment System, etc.

a word of warning

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