.akp File Extension

Developer: Akai Professional
File type: Sampler File
You're here because you have a file that has a file extension ending in .akp. Files with the file extension .akp can only be launched by certain applications. It's possible that .akp files are data files rather than documents or media, which means they're not meant to be viewed at all.

what is a .akp file?

The AKP file extension is a data format associated to Akai Sampler. AKP files and AKAI Sampler were developed by AKAI Professional. These files are program files used by Akai S5000 and S6000 samplers. They are basically in the standard RIFF file format. A RIFF file is made up of chunks: each one starting with a 4 byte ASCII header and a 4 byte (double word) number representing the length of the chunk. Only two types of chunk are allowed to have sub chunks, the 'RIFF' chunk (the whole file) and any 'LIST' chunks In an AKP file, the 'kgrp' chunk contains 9 sub chunks. Chunks are always written in the same order .The kgrp header is also slightly non-standard. Files in AKP format can be opened with Propellerhead ReCycle, Chicken Systems Translator, FMJ-Software Awave Studio, MAZ Sound Tools VSampler, and Freecycle in Mac Os, Microsoft Windows-based systems and Linux platforms.

how to open a .akp file?

Launch a .akp file, or any other file on your PC, by double-clicking it. If your file associations are set up correctly, the application that's meant to open your .akp file will open it. It's possible you may need to download or purchase the correct application. It's also possible that you have the correct application on your PC, but .akp files aren't yet associated with it. In this case, when you try to open a .akp file, you can tell Windows which application is the correct one for that file. From then on, opening a  .akp file will open the correct application.

a word of warning

Be careful not to rename the extension on .akp files, or any other files. This will not change the file type. Only special conversion software can change a file from one file type to another.

what is a file extension?

A file extension is the set of three or four characters at the end of a filename; in this case, .akp. File extensions tell you what type of file it is, and tell Windows what programs can open it. Windows often associates a default program to each file extension, so that when you double-click the file, the program launches automatically. When that program is no longer on your PC, you can sometimes get an error when you try to open the associated file.
