AudioSauna Introduces Its Own Song Format

AudioSauna updates to version 0.103 and features a powerful file-format, bug-fixes and new preset synth patches.



We are very happy to announce that we've just updated AudioSauna with the possibility to open and save songs to your local hard drive.

Now you can create a complete song with multiple tracks, complex patterns and custom synth patches and save it to your hard drive. Opening the song will simply revert the application to the previously saved state.

The smart file format even supports importing your own samples to AudioSauna's sampler devices - all the samples and settings will be included in the compressed and light-weight song file!

AudioSauna's song format in detail:
  • Filename extension: .song
  • Supports importing wav- and mp3-samples to the samplers
  • AudioSauna's preset sample kits are always opened from the cloud
  • Because we store all the preset samples in the cloud, the format's file size will allways stay minimal
  • Imported audio is compressed using a non-destructive algorithm
  • Opening a song completely regenerates the saved state of the application

    1. Are you going to 'you computer' and searching for it? Remember that you can either save it as a 'loop' or as a 'song'. They can look like different files.

    1. Assuming you have previously saved one. Just go to 'file' in the upper left hand corner and click 'open from my computer' find the song and double click it. :)

  4. I have had to download Audacity so i can save my files into proper mp3. format. Once I do that, however, I have not been able to reopen using Audiosauna. To avoid this issue I have started saving the file in AS format (the .song extension) saving it in one folder, and then exporting and adding the .mp3 extension or simply renaming the file so i can let Audacity have one copy and Audiosauna have the other.

  6. I had the same problem as all of you - saved my file but couldn't reopen. Here's how to fix it:

    1. When saving your file, add ".song" (no quotes) to the end of the file name.
    2. If you have audiosauna files lying around, add this extension to the end of them and you'll be able to open them in audiosauna.

    Hope this helps ^_^

  7. I think Audiosauna is a very worthwhile application. However, I have had several issues that I have had. 1. I do not know how to download Audiosauna; I have not located the link. 2. I am not able to save a file. The files saved in the .song format are 3KB in size and do not play. Using sound recording, I have been able to save the file in a WVA or WMA format but the file will not playback. Can someone tell me what I am doing wrong?

    Audiosauna looks like a cool application, but unless I can use it, what's the point!!!

    1. You can only download it into CHROME and not on to your computer. Alternately, you can use it in your browser. I believe the file situation has been fixed now. :)

      And further issues feel free to let me know!
