What is an .BMW file?

.BMW is BuzzPlay music with waves

File extension bmw is mainly related to Buzz, which was the first ever "easy to use" free modular software based synthesizer. What this means is that the entire system is based on objects, which may be routed in a modular fashion, giving you the freedom to be as creative as you want.

For example, if you wish to run 3 Physical Modeling synths and a Drum Machine through 2 separate Stereo Delays, into a Mixer, through a Compressor and Parametric EQ, and finally out to your speakers - no problem. Lay down your synths, connect the wires and you're done. 


How to open:

How to convert:

Use Buzz to expoert bmw files to other formats.
