What are external audio files?

Postby Visitor » Tue Mar 23, 2004 11:43 pm

Every time I try to open songs that I've already recorded, an error message pops up that says some external audio files are missing and have been replaced with silence. Then, when you play the song it's just silence. :( Please help, we're trying to make a CD out of these songs.

Sounds like youve loading a Cakewalk Bundle file and have moved the audio (.wav) files you have created during the project to a different directory, hence Cakewalk cant find the associated files.

If it was a bundle file then the audio would be with it. It sounds like you are trying to load a project or normal file and it cannot find the audio you have recorded. It may be they ahve been deleted but you could have just mixed up the search paths. Look for folders called Audio Data and Picture Cache on your hard drive, they are normally situated in the Cakewalk Projects folder but you may have moved them. There is also a search function within sonar to locate any audio files.
