Opening SY_ files

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

What is a SY_ file?

Files that contain the .sy_ file extension are most commonly associated with compressed Korg DW-8000 files.

The Korg DW-8000 application is a digital-analog synthesizer instrument. The files that are created with the software can be saved in a compressed format in order to save a user's disk space and to make it easier to distribute the files over the Internet or via email.

When a file is compressed using this software, these file is given the .sy_ file extension.

Files that contain the .sy_ file suffix may also contain compressed .sys files. The .sy_ file extension is replaced by the .sys file extension when the compressed file is decompressed.

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.
