.dig File Extension

Developer: Avid Audio
File type: Designer File
You're here because you have a file that has a file extension ending in .dig. Files with the file extension .dig can only be launched by certain applications. It's possible that .dig files are data files rather than documents or media, which means they're not meant to be viewed at all.

what is a .dig file?

The DIG file extension is a data format known as Sound Designer Audio File. This file format only supports 16-bit monophonic short duration (on the order of seconds) audio samples. The files have either a .DIG or .SD format and are used for short sounds. They are used for transferring audio data between digital audio workstation (DAW) applications. They are similar in structure to AIFF files, and can contain timestamped region information. DIG files and Sound Designer software were developed by Digidesign and released in 1985. Digidesign is now Avid Audio, a digital audio technology company. The software was originally designed to edit sounds for the E-MU Emulator sampling keyboard. The successor of Sound Designer I is SD2, a more flexible format. Files in DIG format can be opened with FMJ-Software Awave Audio in Microsoft Windows-based systems.

how to open a .dig file?

Launch a .dig file, or any other file on your PC, by double-clicking it. If your file associations are set up correctly, the application that's meant to open your .dig file will open it. It's possible you may need to download or purchase the correct application. It's also possible that you have the correct application on your PC, but .dig files aren't yet associated with it. In this case, when you try to open a .dig file, you can tell Windows which application is the correct one for that file. From then on, opening a  .dig file will open the correct application.

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, .dig. 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.
