Wave Files

Wave files have the extension .wav and are the most common file format on the PC platform.

If you select the Wave File format for the exported file, you can make the following settings:

  1. Insert Broadcast Wave Chunk

    Activates the embedding of additional file information in Broadcast Wave format.


    By activating this option, you create a Broadcast Wave file. Some applications may not be able to handle these files. If you get problems using the file in another application, deactivate Insert Broadcast Wave Chunk and export the file again.

  2. Edit

    Opens the Broadcast Wave Chunk dialog where you can enter information.

  3. Don’t Use Wave Extensible Format

    Deactivates the Wave Extensible format that contains additional metadata, such as the speaker configuration.

  4. Don’t Use RF64 compliant File Format

    Deactivates the RF64 compliant format that allows file sizes to exceed 4 GB.

  5. Insert iXML Chunk

    Includes additional project-related metadata, such as project name, author, and project frame rate.

  6. Insert Tempo Definition

    This option is only available if Insert iXML Chunk is activated. It allows you to include tempo information from the tempo track or from the Definition section of the Sample Editor in the iXML chunk of the exported files.
