IMP File - opening and understanding

Did your computer fail to open an IMP file? We explain what they are used for and recommend software that we know can open or otherwise handle your .IMP files.

What is an IMP file?

IMP files are part of output audio files that are generated by Adobe Audition. This software is an audio- oriented software that features various capabilities for editing digital audio recordings.

Multitracking is one of the capabilities of Adobe Audition. It allows different sound sources or tracks to be edited and merged to create one audio file. Each sound source is composed of wavelengths. When used in Adobe Audition, they are transformed into a waveform.

The waveform of the audio is normally influenced by various pieces of data from impulses. This data is stored in .imp files. By specifying the audio properties, the necessary impulse data is generated to change the original audio file.

Files with the .imp extension pertain to a time line information of an amplitude map of a waveform. When audio is being edited in Adobe Audition, the user can apply effects like distortion of the audio and convolution (according to the customization that the user wants).
