I created some 192k files which had almost all the Metadata sections populated (RIFF, BWF, XML, ID3). These files are all over 2GB.
The person who received these files could not load them into SoundBlade/Mac OSX. I could play them in Quicktime, ProTools & WavelLab without issue. He inquired with SoundBlade who told him that the files I provided are RF64 wavs which were never intended to contain metadata. He says they need to be BWF only.
I don’t follow the rational behind this explanation. First, don’t these files have to be RF64 to be greater than 2GB? Second, I don’t see a way to align WL9 to make BWF only/specifically.
A work around was to strip the metadata and provide “empty” wavs. This allowed importing into SoundBlade. I’m curious to know what the truth of this matter is.
