what is a .dmf file?

The DMF file extension is a data format known as Delusion Digital Music File. DMF files are audio files in an 8 or 16-bit mono based on the X-Tracker format that can be played by various tracker programs. They are used to store instruments, sound samples, collection, name, loop, and mono among others. They are composed of several data chunks such as DDMF (the format identifier), INFO (file information), CMSG (song message), SEQU (sequencer order), PATT (pattern data), INST (instrument data), SMPI (sample information), SMPD (sample data), SMPJ (sample jump positions), and ENDE (end of file marker). DMF files and Delusion software were developed by XTracker. The software had integrated sampling software for internal sample editing and many realtime sample effects. Files in DMF format can be opened with Xtracker32, DeliPlayer, StormSky RainbowPlayer, OpenMPT, MODPlug Player,and FMJ-Software Awave Studio in Microsoft Windows based system. Another format used by Delusion is DSF for Delusion/XTracker sample format.

a word of warning

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