What is an .CWY file?

.CWY is ChordWizard Style

A CWY file contains a song style used by Songtrix, a music learning and creating application. It stores song settings for the volume, tempo, melody, rhythm, bass, drums, and riff levels. Default song styles include Blues, Country, Disco, Funk, Techno, and Swing. CWY files can be uploaded to the ChordWizard network and shared with other members.

The CWY file is used to alter the song settings, track setup, and track scope of a .CWS song file. To change the style of song, select Song → Change Style....

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

NOTE: The CWY file was replaced by the .STYX file with the release of Songtrix 4.
