Q: I am set up to record two-track WAV poly files with my 744T but when I import my files into my DAW there are four tracks, two of which have nothing on them. I feed the recorder a two-channel stereo mix using the line in TA3 connectors on my 744T. I have custom routed inputs 3 and 4 to tracks C and D. Why is my two-track WAV poly setup creating four-track WAV poly files.
A: When routing any inputs to tracks C and D with polyphonic files, the unit will generate tracks A and B automatically. The proper setup for a two-track WAV poly file using the TA3 connectors would be to route inputs 3 and 4 to tracks A and B.
Note: Use Sound Devices Wave Agent, a file conversion utility tool for Windows-based computers to extract the polyphonic files into monophonic and repackage tracks 3 and 4 as a valid two-track polyphonic file.
