    Howdy everyone,

    i just found a way to convert audio loops from Logic (CAF) into WAV so you can use it in REAPER, CUBASE etc. And i hope it's a good share for all of you (sorry for my english)
    Take note that I am on a bootcamp mode so i could access other drive easily by using Paragon HFS+ software. or you can use external drive to copy the logic's audio loop first and plug it in.

    Steps :
    1. Download free format factory software from here
    Code:
    http://www.pcfreetime.com/formatfactory/index.php?language=en
    and install it (beware of the toolbar, just skip it)
    2. Run the Format factory
    3. Open the apple audio loops folder (in mac it is in Library\Audio\Apple Loops\Apple)
    4. Choose a folder and open it
    5. Select all files in the folder and drag it to the format factory window
    6. Another window will pop up and asks you which format that you want to convert, choose audio and wav and select the setting into the highest quality (or you can customise it).
    7. Select the output folder (Make new folder and rename it as you wish)
    8. Click OK and Start the conversion process (1k file size will not be converted)
    9. Voila and you're done ..

    Or try Faasoft CAF to WAV Converter which can convert CAF to WAV, MP3, ALAC, AIFF, AAC and more.

    Thanks for the Tute. Unfortunately thu I couldn't get it to work for me with some old Drumcore files I have with the .caf file extension.
    When I tried to add them to the converter (tried several different ones) they are not recognized as audio files. Looks like they aren't true caf files.
    Any other options I can try??
    I'm on PC
    Cheers

    And what about Apple Loops that are already in.wav or .aiff ?
    The only way I found so far is exporting the audio files inside a Logic project but that's just a pain in the a** if you want to convert a whole bunch.

    Edit > I see this is a Windows only tool so that wouldn't help me :no:
