Skijumptoes, thanks for that info, and it will help. All of my saved files were either 16bit/44.1 KHz or 24bit/48KHz files.
Here’s how things went… 4 days ago all three programs were independent of each other in regards to their particular program saved files, each marked with the particular programs logo/icon. Five days ago there was a Win10 update and I installed it. And then, next day, the updates for Cubase 10.0.60 arrived, along with WL 10.0.30. I downloaded these and installed them. At this point the Cubase and WL saved files were still independent of each other, each marked/labeled accordingly. I hadn’t open RX7at this point. So 3 days ago, I was trying out the External EFX option in WL, going out and back to WL thru an analog comp and recording the results. All good. I still hadn’t looked at the RX7 saved files but I wanted to try going out of WL to the RX7 program for external editing as well. I tried this and it didn’t work, it was a fail on the return. So I closed WL and opened Cubase to try the process there. It was also a fail. This was when I started to look at my various saved files in all three programs. When I opened the saved files in RX7, I saw that they were all WL labeled. So I changed them to open with RX7. And then I opened the saved WL files and saw that they were all labeled RX7 files. So I changed those to WL versions. Then I looked at the saved RX7 files and saw that they had reverted to WL labeled files. This was a new thing, it was never this way before, they were always marked as files created by the particular program I had saved them from. So on a whim I opened the Cubase saved files and saw that they were also tagged as WL files. I went to change a Cubase file (labeled as a WL file) to open with Cubase, and then I went to the WL folder and the RX7 folder to see if they were intact - all the files were now labeled as Cubase files. And honestly I did this about 20 times swapping the ‘Open with’ any of the three programs and each time all three saved program folders files would change to the one I had chosen. I’m not making this up. So I posted here about this, assuming someone else might be experiencing the same thing. Apparently not.
So yesterday I was actually making my YT video and I opened the three folders containing the various saved files for the three programs - and the Cubase folder files were labeled as Cubase. When you realize that the Cubase files are .cpr files it seems impossible that they could have been marked as files to be opened by programs that can only open .wav files, right? But this was the case.
That’s my story. I’ve also contacted iZotope about this and linked the video. When you see the behavior that occurs as the folder in RX7 is double clicked and opens in WL, the track is played, and then when WL is closed, RX7 opens automatically as if to edit the played track… Well this is crazy behavior. Haha, and although I will admit that the automation affect of these events happening is pretty amazing on one level, at the same time you realize that NONE of this was planned by the ppl who created the programs. It’s completely off the rails.
