I did experience the same. I do not believe it has anything to do with GS, because Nero played it back no problem. Try it a few times to open the wav file specifying All or Any type of files. It works for me now, without making any (known) changes.
Thanks for the reply. However I have tried your suggestion and it is still the same. Tried with Sonar and seems as if there is no analogue signal present as I cannot see one on the audio track and nothing plays!!
I don't think I have to set anything up in GigaStudio to record or do I!
No, and it sounds like you have been capturing before, used to the procedure.
When you tell GS before starting the capture where do you want your file,and look at the file after the capture is the file appears the right size, and have the .wav there? What do you get if you check Properties of this file?
The file size is approx 10 Meg. which is what I would expect for my short test When I check properties the file is shown as a WAV sound file. In fact the file is initially accepted by windows media player and then it says it is contacting the codec server before failing.
Yes, I have been recording without difficulties on version 3.1 for some time.
Did you try importing the wav file into sonar? File - Import - Audio. Sonar might give you more information about what is there. Even before importing, if you select the file name in the import audio selection box, you'll see the details about the file at the bottom of that box. (Sonar 3, anyway).
Yes I have tried with Sonar 4 Home Studio. The file
is imported without any problem and as I am importing, the WAV file details are confirmed. However when I try to play there is no sound, and looking at the track graphic there does not seems to be any analogue signal!
I have contacted Tascam but as yet they have not responded.
Here I come again, just as I was reading an other thread, Jan Fairhurst giving his good advise to someone, it occured to me that you could check one thing with your problem. Are you running at 24 bits or 16 bits when you are capturing in GS?
If you are running 24, change to 16 on GS, on your soundcard too, and try your playback.
Many thanks for your suggestion, at last I can record again: I'm now like a kid with a new toy!
I changed the bounce to disk bit depth from 24 to 16 and I can now play back the wav file. Interestingly I couldn't change the bit depth in my hardware adapter (system settings) as it is fixed on 32 i.e no option to change to anything else!
As you will probably guess I am not a GigaStudio expert, only use it to drive my organ (keyboards and pedal board), but the pipeorgan sounds are the best, quite amazing.
Don't want to sound ungrateful but will I be missing anything not being able to record in 24 bits.
