What is a PKF file?

Adobe Audition is a program for audio production. Peak files created this program are saved with the .PKF extension. These files are generated automatically each time you open or import a new audio file. PKF files are needed for the program to be able to visually display the waveforms within audio files. After a PKF file is created, there is no need to re-render the waveform each time you open the corresponding audio file or project. This format was developed for Adobe Audition CS5.5. PKF files are similar to .PK files used by older version of this software. However, PKF files can be recognized only by Adobe Audition CS5.5 and later versions.
