The manual does state
but that is in section 5.11 "Packing Projects into Packs" regarding packs for transit and backup, not installed packs. Of course, it would be smart to use lossless technologies to make the library take less space on disk. So possibly it's something like this at play here."Live employs lossless compression techniques to minimize the file size of Packs"
If you export these sounds via clips they can be opened no problem. That's a lot of work though. Anyone knows more about the format Live uses in its sample files or why they can't be opened as is?
My idea was to analyze these files externally. Are there internal tools, plug-ins or devices, you can suggest for sample and library analysis? I want data like bit-depth, highest peak, noise level and such. I see no way to put this data into Live, so I'm thinking getting this data to some kind of external storage with name references.
