Creating an audio Multipad
« on: July 27, 2020, 11:14:09 PM »
I am trying to create an audio multipad to store a sound effect. I have tried and tried and I keep getting the message "audio format not supported". Grrrrr.
I found a thread here from last November that stated the format has to be:
44.1 kHz  / 16-bit / Stereo
I've tried that and a dozen other permutations but same message.
Has anyone done this and what is the magic word? I am using Audacity to try to create this file.

Hi Paul
I trust you are saving the file as a wav file; 44.1 kHz sample rate, 16 bit resolution and then following the instructions on page 54 of the reference manual.
This works fine.

Thanks for your comments but...
Yes, it is a wav file.
44.1 khz / 16 bit / stereo (tried mono first)
and I have memorized the reference manual pages.
I am trying to do this on my new SX900.
I got this wav file off the internet, could there be something in this file that is preventing this from working?

Thanks Eileen, but I did not try that, however, I did solve the problem.
The problem was in Audacity. I did upgrade to the latest version and when I opened my clip with the new version I discovered that the project rate was still set at 48000 hz even though I was saving it at 44100 hz. I changed the project rate to 44100 hz and saved it again and waa laa it works!
Thanks to all.
