m4a files

Why do we need to ? cubase 11 is not cheap.
Free apps like VLC and Audacity do it.
Studio one 4 does it.
poor show for a premium product.

use convert in itunes, simple. Failing that VLC. File .media . convert.
Pi**ed off with Steinberg for this inconvenience

Audacity
It’s a free audio program that imports anything and exports/converts to anything. I’ve had success with Mp4 recorded from various formats. Zoom, for example, stores audio in Mp4 format and using Audacity, I’ve converted to WAV, or even FLAC. Then I’m fine with importing into Cubase. No issues, very easy, and Free.
