Hi - I need to decode and open apple lossless m4a’s (alac). Generally, I batch convert the m4a’s to wav and work on them from there. I’m coming from 32-bit WaveLab 8.5 which works perfectly for this. Now, wavelab 9.5 just hangs when I try to open one. I have no problem playing the the lossless m4a files in WMP, and have the most recent iTunes/Quicktime installed. I’m on Win 10.
I have tried tried changing the file extension - .alac, .mp4, etc… same result.
I don’t understand why WaveLab 8.5 which is still installed has no problem with this, yet WaveLab 9.5 can’t do it.
