Thread: Converting 8-bit, mono wav file

    Converting 8-bit, mono wav file

    Hi there...

    Using dBpoweramp 17.7 on a Win10 machine, I'm trying to convert an 8-bit mono wav file with a sample rate of 64-kbps to an uncompressed wav for editing in a DAW. When I try to perform the conversion, I get the following error:
    Error Cannot Create Wave Decoder (CCITT u-Law)? [clWaveDecoder_Wave::PrepareToDecodeAudio]

    Any suggestions?

    It means you do not have the PCM decoder installed, WAVE is a container format and there are 100's of different encodings, what ever created the file would have had an ACM system codec for Windows.

    Ok, thanks for the insight. It came from a telephone system, so I'm trying to convert it for use in an audio editor. Thanks again.
