what is a .dsm file?

A digital sound module tracker file can be stored in the DSM format and appended with the .dsm extension. These DSM files are classified as audio files used by digital audio tracking software, and these applications can also be used to create, open and edit the content of a DSM file. Creators of a DSM file can use these supported programs to enter multiple digital audio tracks in one DSM file, and notes comprising the musical score developed for the DSM project can be included. Musical notations stored in a DSM file are associated by the DSM author to certain audio samples, and these samples are also entered into the DSM file. The CocoModX software is implemented with support for creating, opening and modifying the content of these DSM files, and this program was developed for Mac platforms. The Media Player Classic program can be installed into computers running on Microsoft Windows-based systems to implement support for opening and viewing the content of these DSM files. Linux users can on the other hand use the XMMS application to view the data stored in a DSM file.

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, .dsm. 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.
