Audio Formats

  • Audio files with extensions: .wav. RMN only imports .wav files saved as PCM with integer samples.

Scientific Dataset Formats

  • CSDM Files with extensions .csdf and .csdfe. The core scientific dataset (CSD) model is a light-weight, portable, versatile, and standalone data model capable of handling a variety of scientific datasets. This is also the native format for RMN 2.0 documents saved as a package with the extension. Control click on file in Finder to see package contents. Inside are the dependent variable data files and the .csdfe json file with parameters.

Spectroscopic Dataset Formats

  • JCAMP Files having the extensions .jdx, ,jcm, and .dx should open in RMN when you double click on it in the finder. You can also open them inside RMN. RMN only imports JCAMP files with XYDATA. It currently does not support multiple block or ntuple data. Examples can be found at the web site of Robert J. Lancashire
  • Galactic Industries SPC Files having the exentsion .spc. RMN only supports the older SpectraCalc and LabCalc format. Examples can be found at the EPA Spectral Database

Nuclear Magnetic Resonance Spectroscopy Dataset Formats

  • Tecmag NMR Files:have the extension .tnt and should open in RMN when you double click on it in the finder.
  • JEOL NMR Files: have the extension .jdf and should open in RMN when you double click on it in the finder.
  • Bruker NMR Files: Bruker stores data inside folders named with numbers. Transfer the numbered folder over to your mac and rename it with the extension .bruker Once you add an extension to the folder it will appear as a file in the finder. Double click on the file to open it in RMN.
  • Spinsight NMR Files: Chemagnetics/Varian/Agilent stores data inside folders. Transfer the folder over to your mac and rename it with the extension .spinsight Once you add an extension to the folder it will appear as a file in the finder. Double click on the file to open it in RMN.
  • Varian NMR Files: Varian/Agilent stores data inside folders. Transfer the folder over to your mac and rename it with the extension .fid Once you add an extension to the folder it will appear as a file in the finder. Double click on the file to open it in RMN.
  • RMN Classic Files: RMN was originally developed in the early 1990s, years before OS X. These legacy files can be opened with RMN by adding the extension .rmnc. After adding the extension double click on the file to open it in RMN. Unfortunately, OS X has discarded directory information about file creator and file type from the classic OS. If this information is missing you will need to tell RMN about the original file type. RMN classic had six file types for (1) one dimension time domain signal, (2) one dimension frequency domain signal, (3) two dimensional time, time domain signal, (4) two dimensional time, frequency domain signal, (5) two dimensional frequency, time domain signal, and (6) two dimensional frequency, frequency domain signal. On import a dialog will appear prompting you for the file type.
