What is .ASD file extension?
.ASD file extension is a known file type. This section tells you everything you need to know about this extension.
File created by Ableton Live, an audio production application; created when a new sample is recorded or when a sample is imported for the first time; contains metadata about the audio sample that 1) enables the software to display waveform data, and 2) speeds up performance when stretching the sample to fit a particular meter.
Ableton Live creates ASD files in the same directory as the recorded or imported sound clip. The ASD filename is the sound clip filename with the ".asd" extension added. For example, if you import song.wav, the software creates song.wav.asd.
NOTE: If you do not want Ableton Live to create ASD files, turn off the "Create Analysis Files" option, which is located in the "File Folder" tab of the Preferences window.
