ORC file extension - CSound Orchestra midi audio

What is orc file? How to open orc files?

File type specification:

Audio and sound file type icon Audio and sound file type

orc file icon: orc filetype icon

The orc file extension used by CSound for “orchestra” data info, was first used by the Orchestra-80/85/95/2000 Music Language and program/hardware originally used for the Radio Shack TRS-80 Models 1, 3, 4, 4P (with a hardware attachment of 2 8-bit DACs via their expansion ports for stereo output using software additive synthesis of up to 5 voices, each with 8-harmonic registers supported) and later (Orch-90/CC) the Color Computer Models 1, 2 and 3 (via a ROMpack).

Such orc files were essentially text only files in upper case only, using a partial compression of the last characters at the end of each line, but setting its high “bit” to one, thus saving two bytes otherwise used for CR/LF control character terminators.

This orc file type entry was marked as obsolete and no longer supported file format.

This type of file is no longer actively used and is most likely obsolete. This is typically the case for system files in old operating systems, file types from long discontinued software, or previous versions of certain file types (like documents, projects etc.) that were replaced in higher versions of their original programs.
