AUP File Extension

Have a problem opening a .AUP file? We collect information about file formats and can explain what AUP files are. Additionally we recommend software suitable for opening or converting such files.

What is the .AUP file type?

The .aup extension is related to the Audacity Project (AUP) file format. A file in this format is a small plaintext file that stores project and session information for Audacity, a popular open-source multi-platform media editing tool. The AUP file format is based upon XML, the Extensible Markup Language.

An .aup project file stores all information and metadata related to a given Audacity project, including type and number of media clips added to the project, editing state and other project-specific data and settings. It does not contain any actual media data, only reference to it. An .aup project file would be created by Audacity along with a related folder where actual media data would be stored.

An AUP file can be opened and saved in Audacity only, however, its contents can be directly viewed in any text editor. Any media included in an .aup project can be easily exported from within Audacity.

The .aup extension can also be found in files used by a series of Epocrates medical software tools developed for Apple iOS by Epocrates, Inc.

Another occurrence of the .aup extension is in cheat and walkthrough database update files found in software.
