What is the .WN File Extension?

.WN File Extension Description:

The file extension WN is attached to text files created by the WriteNow software. WriteNow is a document preparation system developed by John Anderson and Bill Tschumy. It was originally created to run on Apple Macintosh computers. It was meant to replace the MacWrite word processor.

A document preparation system or a word processor is a computer application used to create, edit, format and print documents. WriteNow contained some features not available in MacWrite like a spell checker and footnoting functions. The WriteNow word processor was written in assembly language. This allowed the program to run faster as it can communicate with the underlying hardware of the system.

WriteNow was light enough so that it can be booted from a 400 KB floppy disk. Users can create a document and then save it to the computer with the file extension WN. The text stored in the document with the .wn file extension includes formatting. Formatting allows the users to dictate how the document is presented. This includes spacing, font size, indentation and margins. Text files with the file extension WN can be opened, edited, printed and formatted by WriteNow.

The file extension WN is also used by the music file song module made with the Wanton Packer. Wanton Packer is an old music creator compatible with Amiga computers and the AmigaOS platform. Music files with the file extension WN were compiled into disk samples. The music file with the extension WN can be played by emulators of the Amiga system such as the Unix Amiga Delitracker Emulator. Plug-ins for WinAmp music player can also be downloaded so that it can play music files with the file extension WN.

Files with the WN file extension are actually module files. Module files are made up of three basic elements:

1. Samples which contain single note sounds.

2. Patterns, which describe how the samples are to be played on multiple channels.

3. A pattern list, which describes the sequence of when the patterns are played.

All three elements are used to create digital music. Since the file stores all the elements needed to play the file, the sound quality remains the same regardless of the hardware and software used to play it.
