MAJOR Audio FileRead Error. Whitenoise! (PLEASE HELP)

Hey all,

So this is incredibly bizarre and I’m not sure what to make of this, but the stems I have on my project are being read as Left Channel brickwalled white noise and Right channel at the wrong sample rate . I use cubase as primarily a mixdown DAW and I track i was prepping to complete is now totally screwed up.

I have images attached showing what my experience is.

The .wav’s are not corrupt. I imported the same wav’s into a new project and they played perfectly. If there’s a way to reload the audio tracks correctly please let me know how to do so.

I’m using Cubase Pro 8.0.20 build 468 (64 bit)

I will breakdown what lead me here in case that helps:

  • Export stems from FL Studio

  • Import into cubase

  • Mix, restructure, the whole 9 yards

  • Decide to edit stems, go back into FL studio

  • -Reprint same stems, same files, same filenames

    • Suddenly horrible Error and sadness

I hope someone can help me solve this. Ill continue to troubleshoot and test things out in the meantime.


To fix, I had moved the location of the audio folder containing the stems, allowed cubase to not find it, but did not save the project.

Then, in order to force a reload of the audio, reopened the project and lead cubase to the new folder location, as to which the audio is now processed correctly.
