    I may need a little more info

    could be a stereo mono thing ??

    I'll make an ASSUMPTION and jump to a specific idea
    one should never assume
    you are on a Mac ... you have recorded B-WAV files.

    I have found that many programs are not happy with the PT method of tagging a WAV file.
    why does PT use a PT icon on a Mono file when PT doesn't play the file when you accidentaly double click on it .... mmmm ?
    damed digidesign ... it never used to be like that back at PT4 and 4.3

    Use Quicktime Pro to open the file then save as or export the file as a new wav with a new name
    now you have a Quicktime WAV and things like Toast and FCP and others ... I-Tunes seems to be happier with the files

    frustrating isin't it ?

    On the PC Win Media Player also doesn't like a PT WAV file so try a similar save / export trick.

    that's all I got for now.

    There used to be a great program for OS9 called SoundApp PPC. With it you could convert any sound file to any other. wonder if it is around for OSX

    I was under the impression that standard wav. files dont work with drumagog?

    I know they use "gog" files, they probably need to be converted. Check out the forum of the drumagog website.
