I’ve attached a wav file (in a zip file as wav files are not allowed) that will cause both Cubase (8.5.15) and Wavelab (9.0) to stop working (Win 10 64 bit) when it is played.
- Use Mediabay to scan the location of the file.
- Click on the loop file (48K, 24bit) to preview it using mediabay (either automatically or manually clicking play).
- Mediabay and Cubase crashes.
Similarly this happened when I tried to preview the file in Wavelab. It loads OK, but when file->save as was selected and the little ‘play file’ icon clicked, Wavelab crashed.
I suspect that the file is corrupt somehow, however I’d expect both Cubase and Wavelab to examine for corruption and not fail catastrophically if a file is somehow corrupt. Many other files from the same library play and preview correctly without any problems, it appears to be just this one, which might be a clue to a latent software bug in the wav preview player.
