I am working with audio that was originally an ogg vorbis file.  Inititally I let Magma convert it to wav (a neat function it has) and it threw up the "!" error and said "File does not seem to be a valid .wav."

 

So I used another file conversion program, then tried running Magma again and got the same error.

 

Tried yet another app, successful conversion, then Magma with the same result.

 

The weird problem is, the file sappear to be "perfectly valid" as in, it plays just fine as an ogg or a wav in just about any app I use -- DAWs (not just Reaper), Audacity, Windows Media Player, all my Mac apps...

 

So what kind of issues makes Magma think a file isn't valid?

 

Edited for (hopefully) clarity...

Have you read the C3 customs tutorial? The audio files need specific settings. From the guide:

 

You are now ready to export your work! You will need 4 things:
- A 44 KHz, 16-bit, stereo WAV file for the entire song
- A 44 KHz, 16-bit, stereo mute WAV file for the entire song
- A 16 KHz, 16-bit, mono WAV file for the entire song for dry vox (if
you want to do proper lip sync, read the Dry vox focus)
- A MIDI file

 

 

Although I'm not really sure if different settings throw Magma errors...

Yeah, Magma actually throws a different error if your files are the wrong bit rate or frequency (I've already had that happen when I was inattentive).  The nice thing about those errors is they actually tell you why Magma is rejecting the file (something like "File is not 44 or 48 KHz" or whatever).

 

This is... seemingly something else.   :confused:  And rare enough no one had an instant for-sure answer...  I may just have to see if I can track down a different source file, but I hope not because I don't know that I will be able to!

Are you able to throw that file at the audio visualizer in C3 CON Tools?
