Recovering Samples from .asd Files

I have these sample instruments from Puremagnetik and somehow I've managed to lose a single sample from one of them and I can't find the .wav file anywhere on my computer but I have the .asd file. 

I'm wondering if there is a way to recover the sample from the .asd file.

    No. An ASD file is not an audio file but merely a data file which Live uses to (quote from manual): "help optimize the stretching quality, speed up the waveform display and automatically detect the tempo of long samples"

    See here for more details:

    So summing up: these will not help you to recover audio data, sorry :/
