    what is the difference between riff waves and broadcast waves? Both of them are mixdown options in sonar.

    For your purposes there is no difference. Broadcast waves can contain metadata while riff waves don't support that.

    The best thing about broadcats waves is that they have a smpte time stamp which denotes the timecode at the start of the file. 00:01:45:15.00
