Some samples won't open

hey! its my first time with caustic and i love it to the point that im thinking of buying the key.

anyway, i just downloaded a sample pack off the internet and ive unzipped it. upon opening some sounds with beatbox or pcmsynth, none of them would load. However, when i use an audio player, it seems to play fine. what is happening??

Caustic's sample playback

Caustic's sample playback machines have limited playback time (about 20 seconds). How long are these samples?

Are you using an Android

Are you using an Android based os?

Even if samples are long they generally load ok for me personally (although playing the entire file in the context of a song can be a different issue).

I've encountered this several times where even short samples (wav format) won't load into any machines, I suspect it's something to do with the wave header, info written into the file that clarifies it's type (16 bit vs 24 bit float etc.). Usually if I load the file in a wave editor (not Caustic's) and simply re-save then the file will load into Caustic.

So far have had good luck with:

"WaveEditor for Androidâ„¢ Audio Recorder & Editor"

If it works out let us know so we can tag this as solved.

@paulovski its around 40

@paulovski its around 40 seconds, but i've tried puting in a sample as long as 3 minutes (an entire song)
@SToons Music yes, i am using a fork of android called ColorOs. I will try the method out.
