What is an .XMS file?

.XMS is Music Studio Project

Project created and used by Music Studio, an iOS music production app; contains music project information, which includes audio tracks, song parameters, keyboard layout, effect settings, metronome settings, and interface settings.

While the XMS file contains many settings, it does not store preferences from the "Setup" screen. The XMS format is a proprietary format that cannot be opened by any other application.
