The pgm file extension is also related to AKAI MPC family of devices. The MPC-1000, the MPC-2000, the MPC-2000XL and the MPC-3000 all use different program formats although they all have the same PGM file extension.

Actually the MPC-2000 and MPC-2000XL use the same PGM file format, but the latter (like the MPC-1000) wants samples in WAV format, while the former wants them in SND format (like the MPC-3000).

This pgm 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.
