Opening MOD files

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

What is a MOD file?

Files that contain the .mod file extension are usually audio files. The MOD file format is the standard music module format that is used by the majority of audio tracking applications.

MOD files contain note patterns, instrument numbers and controller messages. The file has different sound samples assigned to different tracks within the file.

MOD files can be created by a variety of MOD creation applications including StarTrekker, Noise Tracker and FastTracker.

Files that contain the .mod file extension may also contain videos that have been taken with certain JVC, Canon and Panasonic camcorders. The files are normally created with software that is included with the digital camcorder.

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.
