What is a MAMX file?
A MAMX file is a musical score saved in the Music Animation Machine format. It contains plain text data that Music Animation Machine uses to show and play a piece of music. Music Animation Machine users typically create MAMX files from .MIDI files.
The Music Animation Machine (MAM) is a musical score player developed by Stephen Malinowski. Malinowski developed MAM to show a score visually using colored bars that represent notes. This allows musicians to see the music's structure, including each note's pitch and timing.
MAM saves musical scores in the MAMX format. Each MAMX file contains a header that defines the score metadata and lines of text that define the notes the score includes.
To create MAMX files, musicians typically import an existing MIDI file into MAM and then save it in the MAMX format. Musicians can also create MAMX files by connecting their keyboard to MAM via a MIDI connection, playing a piece of music, and saving the resulting score in the MAMX format.

You can open a MAMX file with Music Animation Machine (Windows). To do so, select File → Open from the program's menu bar. Then, navigate to and open your MAMX file. After opening your MAMX file, press Space Bar to play the score it contains.
