What is a .alp and how to create it in Ableton Live?

.alp stands for “Ableton Live Pack.”

It’s a zip file of your project and the samples used, but in a smaller, condensed format.

Why use it?

It makes it super easy to archive Ableton Live projects and share them.

How to make an .alp?

1. File –> Collect All and Save.  -This will copy any samples, packs, recorded audio, and Max for Live devices to your project folder.

2. File –> Manage Files…

3. Click Manage Project (Center option on the right pane)


4. Click Create Pack (name your .alp)
