What is an .CWS file?

.CWS file extension is created by ChordWizard Software. .CWS has been classified as Audio Files.

.CWS is ChordWizard Song

A CWS file is a song file created by Songtrix, an application used to learn about and create music. It stores a song composition, which includes the song's style, notes, segments, credits, and structure. CWS files were replaced by .SNGX files with the release of Songtrix 4.

CWS files can also be uploaded to the ChordWizard network and shared with other members.

To create a CWS file, select File → Save Song or Save Song As....

NOTE: Songtrix is available in bronze, silver, and gold editions, which are geared towards beginner, intermediate, and advanced users.
