Open EMP File

File extension EMP is most commonly associated with music files downloaded from, a popular online digital entertainment retailer. EMP files are also used by Medlin Accounting and Payroll software to store employee-specific data, as well as by ECAD (Electronic and Electrical Computer-Aided Design) applications for use in PTC Pro/Engineer, an industry-standard 3D product design application.

The EMP file format is used specifically by the eMusic Download Manager software, which allows users to download albums and synchronise their music collection with popular media players such as iTunes, Winamp and Windows Media Player. Files are downloaded from the eMusic website in EMP format, which are then converted to standard MP3 format by the eMusic Download Manager. The audio files can then be played or transferred to an MP3 player.

PTC Pro/Engineer EMP files are specific to the integrated Pro/ECAD interface tools, which are used for the design of electrical circuit boards. EMP files contain a 2D representation of all the components, including information such as size, shape and height of each individual component. These are used in conjunction with EMN files, which contain information about the size and shape of the Printed Circuit Board (PCB) as well as the location of holes, orientation of components and keep-out and keep-in zones. The idea is to ultimately replace all component outlines stored in the EMP file with 3D models, which are typically imported from a library.

eMusic EMP files can be opened using the Download Manager software, which will convert the file to File extension MP3 for use in media playing software or on portable media devices. EMP files generated for use in Pro/Engineer can be opened by first importing the associated File extension EMN file, which will then require the component information EMP file. Employee data EMP files can be opened using the Medlin Accounting software.
