Cubase Arrangement File Backup
Files that contain the .alb file extension are commonly used by the Cubase music software. Cubase is used to produce and record music tracks and is a type of Digital Audio Workstation.
Cubase uses the .alb extension to create backups of musical arrangement files created within the software application.
In version 5.0r6 the backup naming scheme of Cubase changed. Previously the file extension was changed so that the last letter was changed to a 'b' (for "backup"). For instance, a backup of an arrangement file (*.ALL) would be a (*.ALB) file. Now it will be a '*.ALLB' file.
