How to Open Mogg Files

by Stephen Lilley

A .MOGG computer file is a special type of computer audio file that contains more than one audio track in a single file. Typically these files are used with the computer program "Rock Band," and a single file can contain information pertaining to the vocal, guitar, bass and drum tracks of a single song. If you want to open any of the .MOGG files on your computer, you're going to need to use a special program that can understand them. These programs are called "Audio Editors," and are capable of reading and displaying the information contained in these complicated files.

Use Audacity (see References). Audacity is a freeware audio editor that is capable of reading these complicated .MOGG audio files.

Click "File" and then "Open" and then select the .MOGG file you'd like to open. All of the .MOGG file's multiple audio tracks will display in the main program window.
