Issue Adding Sound To Wavetable

Post by Evan555222 » Thu Nov 12, 2020 3:08 am

Just upgraded to suite and upon attempting to drag an audio track I have just recorded into Wavetable I get an error saying "Cannot load table filename.wav: The file 'C:\directory\filename.wav' could not be opened."
I do not have the same issue with Sampler or Simpler.

Edit: The waveform shows up in Wavetable after exporting the recorded sound, however I would very much enjoy the convenience of being able to drag recordings straight into Wavetable without having to do this.

I had the axact same issue and it really pissed me off. I just found a solution and decided to share it. Maybe someone will find this topic...
So, go to Preferences / Record Warp Launch / Record and set File type to AIFF. From now on you can just drop recorded clips straight into wavetable.

It should work with .wav. Strange...
