Over the years I have accumulated quite a number of sound fx files with a .pca extension -- which I am unable to play in Windows Media player or import into any application I currently own (Sonar, Premiere, etc.).
Doing a little research on the web, I found that the pca extension was used by Sound Forge. I know I used this application (before it was acquired by Sony) once upon a time, on one of my older computers.
I don't know if the sounds are any good. And I can no longer find the CD-ROM that contained Sound Forge (if I remember correctly it was bundled with another software application or piece of hardware that I no longer own.)
Does anyone know of an application (ideally freeware) that would allow me to listen to these files and convert them to something more useable (like WAV format)?
There are at least 1,000 files -- so I wouldn't dream of asking anyone else to do the conversion for me. I was hoping to find a freeware batch converter of some sort.
I understand that the demo version of sound forge either has regular dropouts or tones to prevent you from doing any real work with it. If acid can convert them, I'll give it a try. But I thought Sonar could import acid files. I was surprised when I got an error message saying that it didn't recognize the format.
