How to Convert ALS to WAV

By Jason Artman

The .ALS file format is used by the popular music-creation software Ableton Live. Files with this extension are Ableton Live projects that have not yet been mixed down to an audio file. Export your ALS files to the WAV format using Ableton Live to allow them to be played on a media player or burned as an audio CD.

Step 1

Launch Ableton Live and load your ALS project file.

Step 2

Click "File" at the top of the screen, then choose "Export Audio/Video." You can also accomplish this by hitting "Ctrl-Shift-R" on the keyboard simultaneously.

Step 3

Click the "Rendered Track" drop-down menu and select "Master."

Step 4

Click the "File Type" drop-down menu and select "WAV."

Step 5

Select a sample rate of "44100" and a bit depth of "16." These settings will make the exported WAV file directly compatible with the CD audio format, allowing you to burn the file to a CD or import it into MP3 software.

Step 6

Click "OK." Browse to the folder where the converted WAV file should be saved and click in the "File name" box. Type a name for the file and click "Save."
