What are PEK files and how to open them

Are you having problems opening a PEK file or are you simply curious about its contents? We're here to explain the properties of these files and provide you with software that can open or handle your PEK files.

What is a PEK file?

A .PEK file is an Adobe Premiere Peak Waveform file.

Adobe Premiere Waveform PEK files, recognizable by their ".PEK" file extension, play a key role in the editing process with Adobe Premiere. They store a visible representation of audio clips and grant quicker access to the audio contents within the program.

Premiere can create a smoother and more efficient editing experience by pre-computing and storing the peak waveform, which is much faster than having to calculate it in real-time.

Premiere generates .PEK files alongside the original audio files, however these can become invalid if you delete or move the original audio file. To ensure a smooth editing process, it is recommended that you keep the .PEK files with their corresponding audio files.
