How to Work with Files Having the .mod File Extension

What is a .mod file?

.mod files identify the common Music module file format widely adopted in the Music Industry.  These files are compatible on a variety of audio tracking software. A .mod file stores the pitch, intensity, modulation patterns of a musical note and varied factors linked with playing musical instruments like volume, tempo, vibrato, cues, etc. It contains descriptive sound patterns and samples used by diverse musical instruments and these samples are allotted to the specific tracks inside a module and are then ordered and used for playing back in sync with the musical notes.

.mod files also identify the compiled code written in the FORTRAN programming language. These compiled fortran .mod files are self-contained files that encapsulate a batch of related procedures and data values in a single file. These files are referenced or called on by other modules programmed in FORTRAN.

.mod files also refer to the ArchiCAD software file format. ArchiCAD is an architecture software used for Building Information Modeling (BIM) and Computer Aided Design (CAD) workings. These types of files are extensively used by architects for creating 3D building models, engineering drafting and drawing for construction purposes. ArchiCAD is a product of a Hungary based firm named Graphisoft.
