Opening VOC files

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

What is a VOC file?

Files that contain the .voc file extension are most commonly associated with Creative Labs audio hardware devices. The VOC files contain audio files that are used by the associated Creative Labs hardware.

VOC files can contain audio clips, music files, instrument sounds and sound effects that are used with the associated hardware device. The VOC file format is a compressed file format, allowing for a reduction in the size of the audio file that is stored on the user's hard drive.

The Quartet software application has also been known to use the .voc file suffix for similar purposes. These VOC files contain audio files that are used by the Quartet program.

The .voc file format is also used by the ZX Spectrum software application. These VOC files contain tape image files that are created with the ZX Spectrum software.

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.
