Unknown track title, artist etc

Post by munkjack »

Decibel is no longer displaying track title, artist or album for WAV files. It did this last time I used it and they are still on the playlist but when I drag new titles in they display as unknown. Any idea if I can fix this?

Did this happen after a Decibel update or did it seem to occur out of the blue?

I've just downloaded Decibel for a trial and the same thing is happening. All WAV files show unknown artist and unknown track.

Is it possible that the wav files don't contain metadata? iTunes, for example, doesn't always save tag information in the files but rather to its own database.

I think that is likely. I ripped a few albums using Max as both wav and flac files and the metadata is displayed when I play those files.
