What is MUS file?

MUS file format is a music notation format used by Finale software and several other applications developed by MakeMusic. The file contains only musical notation data without actual audio data. MUS file format was replaced by MUSX format starting with Finale version 2014.

Similarities with MID file format

Data in MUS files are saved in MIDI format, which makes them similar to MID files, however MUS files contain additional information used only by MakeMusic program.

What else may cause problems?

There can be more reasons which determine that you are not able to open the MUS file (apart from the lack of the proper application installed).

First - the MUS file may be incorrectly associated with the application installed to support it. In this case, you need to change this association by yourself. To do this, right-click on the MUS file that you want to edit, click "Open with" and then select the program from the list that you have installed. After this operation, the problems with opening the MUS file should be solved.

Second - the file you want to open can simply be damaged. Then, the best solution is to find a new version of given file, or download it again from the same source as before (maybe for some reason in the previous session the download of the MUS file has not been completed and it cannot be opened properly).
