.gpk File Extension

Developer: Steinberg
File type: WaveLab Audio Peak File
You're here because you have a file that has a file extension ending in .gpk. Files with the file extension .gpk can only be launched by certain applications. It's possible that .gpk files are data files rather than documents or media, which means they're not meant to be viewed at all.

what is a .gpk file?

A WaveLab audio peak file is a file created by the WaveLab software, and these WaveLab audio peak files are implemented with encoding and compression specifications proprietary to Steinberg, developer of the WaveLab application. Steinberg also developed the GPK format as the format of these WaveLab audio peak files, which are created by the WaveLab program once a user opens an audio file with the program. The associated sound wave details of an audio file is stored in the newly generated GPK file to speed up the process of loading files unto the WaveLab program. The GUI (Graphical User Interface) of the WaveLab application, then displays visualized details and other metadata info for the user to analyze sound wave data associated to the corresponding audio file that was opened by the WaveLab user. The WaveLab default configuration for these GPK files is to leave these GPK files stored in a predefined directory, normally the same directory where the program files of the WaveLab program are found. Users can change this default configuration by selecting the option where the WaveLab program will automatically delete the associated GPK file once the audio file is unloaded by the user from the program.

how to open a .gpk file?

Launch a .gpk file, or any other file on your PC, by double-clicking it. If your file associations are set up correctly, the application that's meant to open your .gpk file will open it. It's possible you may need to download or purchase the correct application. It's also possible that you have the correct application on your PC, but .gpk files aren't yet associated with it. In this case, when you try to open a .gpk file, you can tell Windows which application is the correct one for that file. From then on, opening a  .gpk file will open the correct application.

a word of warning

Be careful not to rename the extension on .gpk files, or any other files. This will not change the file type. Only special conversion software can change a file from one file type to another.

what is a file extension?

A file extension is the set of three or four characters at the end of a filename; in this case, .gpk. File extensions tell you what type of file it is, and tell Windows what programs can open it. Windows often associates a default program to each file extension, so that when you double-click the file, the program launches automatically. When that program is no longer on your PC, you can sometimes get an error when you try to open the associated file.
