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

The ALS file extension is a data format associated to Ableton Live. ALS files and Ableton Live were developed by Ableton. These files are clip arrangements and references that have not yet been mixed down to an audio file. The software is designed to act as instruments to live performances as well as mixing and arranging tool. It is also used for Disc Jockey track mixing. It has built-in instruments namely, Impulse and Simpler. Impulse contains traditional drum instruments while Simpler uses sampling instruments. It allows previewing of audio clips while the project is being processed. The latest software out in the market is the Ableton Live 8 version.

Ableton Live

Ableton Live

Ableton Live is software which was developed by Ableton that provides its user a Digital Audio Workstation and music sequencer in just one package. It was created for Mac and Windows users. The software was designed in such a way that it can act as an instrument to be used during live performance and at the same time will serve as a tool for mixing, composing, mastering, arranging and recording of music. Ableton Live can also be used for beatmixing since it includes controls that can be used for crossfading and beatmatching together with a wide variety of other special effects which are commonly used by turntablists. C++ is the language used in the creation of this software. Ableton Live comes with built-in instruments that can be used in the process of creating a piece which includes Impulse, Drum Rack and Simpler among the others.

a word of warning

Be careful not to rename the extension on .als 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, .als. 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.
