Trying to make an 5.1 audio montage. It just does not work. Using the file browser: When I try to access a 5.1 32 bit wav downmix done by Nuendo WL10 crashes. I can reproduce this. The speaker symbol is off and I even did not hit play. I crashes when I access the file. 44.1kHz is set and it’s equal to the file. (BTW: Same with a 48kHz/24bit 5.1 file!)
Stereo flac files will be loaded (wav as well), surround flac simply do not work. Surround wav crash WL, tested with 24bit 48 kHz as well.
So not only the crashes are annoying. Just not having the possibility to edit a file with more than 2 channels is bothering. Ok.
As workaround I do this in Nuendo.
Now I would like to do a 5.1 montage, crossfeeds and so on. But I did not find a way how to get in the files. I have no idea how I can get the files
into the new 6 ch audio montage.
I tried the same file(s) that are crashing WL- The just do not import. "The following files were not inserted (check the number of channels and the sample rate).
Format : PCM
Format settings : Little / Signed
Codec ID : 00000001-0000-0010-8000-00AA00389B71
Duration : 2 min 29s
Bit rate mode : constant
Bit rate : 8 467 kb/s
Channel(s) : 6 CH
Channel layout : L R C LFE Lb Rb
Sampling rate : 44,1 kHz
Bit depth : 32 bits
Stream size : 151 MiB (100%)
This is the same when I try to import a 5.1 48kHz 24bit WAV in a new 48kHz montage. Same message.
But: I can import stereo files. This does not make any sense to me in a surround montage. Even importing six mono files does not work.
I know that this worked in WL6.
I’m very disappointed.
