What is a GIO file?

A GIO file is a musical score written in the Adagio score language and supported by the Mandriva Nyquist score composition software. It contains the sheet music for a musical composition and includes MIDI data, instruments, notes, the composer and title, and other score information.

More Information

Mandriva Nyquist is a discontinued score composition application for the also-discontinued Mandriva Linux distribution. When saving a score with Nyquist, the app creates a GIO file to store its contents. After saving the musical score, you can close it, then re-open it to continue modifying the score.

The Adagio score language saved in GIO files consists of text commands that specify each note in the score, with each note consisting of one or several of the following attributes:

  • Time
  • Pitch
  • Loudness
  • Duration
  • Articulation
  • Voice number
  • Tempo
  • Rate

How to open a GIO file

You can open a GIO file with Mandriva Nyquist. However, the software is discontinued.

Since GIO files store information in plain text, you can also view and edit the score with a text editor, such as Microsoft Notepad (Windows) or Apple TextEdit (Mac).
