can't load 24bit wav

i know this came up before but i can't figure out why i can't load 24/44.1 wavs. only 16bit wavs work. i use this app to batch convert flac files https://www.mediahuman.com/audio-conv...

  • Hey Smoker,

    Thanks for posting!

    Sorry you're having some trouble with that! I tried using the conversion utility that you're working with and converted a stereo audio file to 24-bit/44.1kHz WAV. I was not able to add this file to the MPC Software (v2.2.1). I found this odd because the MPC Software can render files in that format, bit depth, and sample rate and by that logic, it can read those files too.

    I wanted to test this so I created a sequence in MPC and exported it as a 24-bit/44.1kHz WAV. I started a new project, dragged it in and it was added to the project. I could play back the sample, edit it, etc. To take it a bit further, I opened that file with the converter utility and rendered it with the same output settings to try and add that to the MPC Software. Nothing should have changed as the output settings were identical but like the first file I converted, I was not able to add that file to MPC.

    Not sure what might be going on with the MediaHuman software but have you tried using any different software to convert audio?

  • hey nick, thanks a lot for testing. that's really odd!

    yes after a long, long search i found another app that's able to batch convert to 24bit. it's called max. all the other "free" audio converters are just trials or lite versions.
