System file type icon System file type

The STY file extension is associated with the Microsoft DirectMusic a component of DirectX API that allows music and sound effects to be composed and played and provides flexible interactive control over the way they are played.

Architecturally, DirectMusic is a high-level set of objects, built on top of DirectSound, that allow you to play sound and music without needing to get quite as low-level as DirectSound. DirectSound allows for the capture and playback of digital sound samples, whereas DirectMusic works with message-based musical data. Music can be synthesized either in hardware, in the Microsoft Software Synthesizer, or in a custom synthesizer.

The .sty file stores style for DirectMusic API.
