Have you encountered a problem with a ASND file? Don’t you know which program opens a file with this extension? You will find all the information you need about working with a ASND file here. In the further part of this page we have added a list of programs that should open your ASND file. It is enough you choose a proper application for your operating system, download and install it.


The file extension ASND identifies so-called Adobe sound or sound documents. It is a format used only by some Adobe products. Asnd files are not audio files but a kind of container that contains the original audio files of a project as well as the changes, effects and other audio settings. The original files are not changed, which is why this procedure is also called non-destructive.

ASND files are mostly used for editing as well as effect editing audio data before adding to video files. It should be noted that ASND files can only be edited in Soundbooth, all other programs can only process them.

How to open a ASND file? Advice and guidance

Absolutely most often appearing reason that prevents you from opening the ASND file is the lack of a proper application to support it in your operating system. It is notably the first thing you need to address. When one of the programs to support a ASND file from the list is already installed, you can try to rerun the file. The system should display a message asking you to choose a primary application to support ASND files. At this point we are looking for disk space where the application was installed in and we can link it with a ASND file. Since then, our operating system will use the selected program to support all ASND files.

Other issues

Despite the described problem with ASND there may be many more problems. If the existing operations were not effective, get involved with the following matters:

- verify that the ASND file is not damaged and that it has been downloaded or copied in whole
- verify that the file has a file extension that has not been intentionally changed (for example, if it do not contain other information than its extension suggests)
- make sure again whether the ASND file type is linked in the operating system with a proper program
- make sure that the file is not infected with a virus and you have up to date software and drivers.
