Question: What is an AL File?

Have you found, downloaded or received an AL file, but don't know which software program is required to open it?

Before attempting to open an AL file, you'll need to determine what kind of file you are dealing with and whether it is even possible to open or view the file format.

Answer: Files which are given the .AL extension are known as ALAW Format Sound files, however other file types may also use this extension. If you are aware of any additional file formats that use the AL extension, please let us know.

How to open a AL file:

The best way to open an AL audio file is to simply double-click it and let the default assoisated application open the file. If you are unable to open the file this way, it may be because you do not have the correct application associated with the extension to view or edit the AL file.

This audio file format was added to our database by a visitor to this site, but no additional information was provided. We have yet to investigate this file type further, or there was not enough information available at the time to report accurately on the format.

Please check back soon for more information as we are constantly updating our file descriptions based on search frequency.

Tip: Try to open the AL file using a text-editor such as Notepad, as many file types contain simply contain unformatted plain-text and can viewed correctly using this method.

I found music files with extension *.al and searched the web and found 2 programs that can open it but there are probably more. The 2 programs are audacity and awave studio. Quicktime and NCH software do not work.

I needed to change their extensions from *.al to *.raw then open them with awave or audacity. Awave was easier but with audacity you need to go to project>import raw data then select the proper audio format.

Choose the waveform/format as G.711 a-law 8-bit 11025hz stereo then the file will play and convert correctly.

NCH software's Switch Sound File Converter is the one that works and easier, not Awave. Awave doesn't work and is rather intrusive.
