.not File Extension

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

what is a .not file?

The NOT file extension is also known as the Notation File or Notesoft file which was developed by Notation Software. The Notation software includes musical or notated score integrated with original MIDI data. It is capable of holding more information for the user’s music sheet, like annotations and other performance markings. It contains MIDI performance data and notation data. MIDI (Musical Instrument Digital Interface) is an industry standard for passing musical performance information among electronic musical instruments and computers. The NOT file format can be old but not obsolete format. It is saved in a proprietary format that may be opened with Notation Software programs, including Musician and Composer. It can be exported to a more standard format such as .mid or .kar after being opened. NOT files can also be used as song templates by saving them in the \Program Files\Notation\Template directory. Users can also change the key signature, clef, instrument transposition, or device/channel/patch assignment for permanency. Files in NOT format can be opened with Notation Musician and Notation Composer in Microsoft Windows platforms.

a word of warning

Be careful not to rename the extension on .not files, or any other files. This will not change the file type. Only special conversion software can change a file from one file type to another.

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, .not. 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.
