How do you import 8 Bit WAV Files into a session as clips?

Won't PT import and upconvert? If not, maybe Wavelab or similar can do the conversion.

Conversion doesn"t seem to work on these 8bit files - the come out all screechy. Has anyone successfully imported 8bit wav files into PT 10?

I did a quick test with some 8-bit reference files, and it seems to be working in PT 10. Admittedly, there probably aren't many people working with 8 bit files, so it doesn't get much exposure.

Where are they from?

If you want to send one in for testing, send it to ProTools_Transfer @ avid.com.

These are PD clips of old movie dialogue. I'll send you one.
