This is my first post on the Logic Pro Forums. I've been a Logic user for 5 years now, so definitely not a newbie, but this problem has me stumped. I recently received some .WAV files in 32-bit audio, 96kHz sample rate. The files were originally recorded in ProTools. I'm attempting to load them into Logic 9 so that I can mix them. When I first loaded them into the arrange window, the waves just looked like big blocks, like they had been compressed at maximum. I thought maybe ProTools had bounced them down in a way that Logic didn't like, so I tried converting them to .aiff and reimporting them. Now I can actually see the waves in Logic, but still no sound. Even curiouser is that in the sample editor, the files still show up as big blocks of sound. I know the files are not corrupted as they playback just fine in Quicktime.


Since I don't normally work with 32-bit audio and I've never had this happen before, my guess is that it might have something to do with this format. But I've had a difficult time searching for the problem on the forum as playback issues can result for a number of different reasons. If anyone has seen this problem before, or has any suggestions to try, I'm all ears.
