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

what is a .cfxr file?

The CFXR file extension is a data format associated to "Cocoa SFXR", a Mac sound effects program. CFXR files were developed by Joachim Bengtsson. These are files that contain sound information such as attack time, sustain time, decay time, vibrato, phaser offsets, and filters. These files are often used for storing sound effects for video games in XML format. They were ported from the original SFXR Windows program and have the ability to export to WAV format like SFXR. The freeware program randomly generates the levels across various sound settings each time the user selects a new sound. According to the creator of the program, it was primarily created to provide a simple means of getting basic sound effects into a game for people who were having a hard time doing it. Files in CFXR format can be opened with CFXR in Microsoft Windows based systems. The latest version of the software is CFXR0.2.0

Cfxr is used to provide sound effects in games quickly. It is created with a native Mac UI with additional save and load execution.

It is commonly used in storing sound effects for video games, though it is common for this type of programs to save files in .sfs binary file format using the sfxr program, cfxr saves sound effects for this programs in XML file format. All these files may still be exported to .WAV including the sfxr. The cfxr program functions by generating in random, the levels of different kinds of sound settings when a user selects a new sound. The cfxr files store information like the sustain time, attack time, decay time, phaser, filters and vibrato.

a word of warning

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