Opening DSF files

Did your computer fail to open a DSF file? We explain what DSF files are and recommend software that we know can open or convert your DSF files.

What is a DSF file?

The .dsf file extension was created for an audio and sound file format that is used by the Delusion/XTracker software. This is a digital audio composing and music generation program for Windows PCs and is more popularly known as Audio Tracker. Other digital audio composing tools, music players and editing programs can be used to open and play the audio data in these .dsf files.

The content of a .dsf file may include digital samples and audio clips that are saved in 8 or 16-bit mono formats. Other pieces of data like metadata details, loops and recorded or simulated instrument tracks and sound effects may also be stored in these DSF files.

Other programs that can open and play DSF files include Awave Studio for Windows PCs and Audio Overload for Mac OS X computers. These .dsf files may also be converted into other standard digital audio file formats through these applications.

Try a universal file viewer

In addition to the products listed above, I would suggest that you try a universal file viewer like Free File Viewer. It can open over 200 different types of files - and very likely yours too! Download Free File Viewer.
