24 bit sound - Possible??

Hello,

I have Liquid 7.2 and am trying to import a 24 bit wav sound into Liquid. When I try and do so the program indicates an error because it is an unsupported format. Is this true?

If so, how do I go about converting the 24 bit sound to 16 bit sound which seems to work fine when importing?

Thanks Brian

Check out Audacity, a freeware wav editor. Perhaps it can do the conversion.

http://audacity.sourceforge.net/

Adobe Audition could do it for sure if you have it.

It's true. I just ran a test and the 24 bit 48k file would not import. However, I converted it to 32 bit (floating point) 48k and it worked great.

I use WaveLab. It's works very well with Liquid. I normally export all the audio tracks from Liquid and do my final mix in WaveLab in a multitrack montage.

Instead of going back to 16 bit file...I would recommend rendering it to a 32 bit, 48k.
