Is anyone creating multichannel audio files that have more than 8 channels? (4 x stereo, or 7.1 setups).

And if so, how are you creating them? Sony Sound Forge seems limited to 8 mono channels. The program “wavewizard” mentioned in the FMOD manual is no longer available.

    Wavosaur is pretty good for creating mutlichannel files.

Sound Forge 9.0 and above should be able to create multichannel wav files (up to 32 channels). As Pete mentioned, Wavosaur can get the job done, as can Audacity.

Thanks. When creating a New File, SoundForge seems limited to a set of multichannel presets that only go up to a 7.1 arrangement (8 mono).
As far as I can tell, you can’t just enter an arbitrary number of channels.

Recently downloaded wavosaur. Never even thought of trying Audacity.

Thanks for the suggestions.

    With Sound Forge 9.0 there is a drop down for the channel count which goes up to 7.1, but you can type any value in. Perhaps this is different in your version of Sound Forge?

    Well, what do you know :-) Just tried it, and yeah, it worked. Sometimes the answer is a little too obvious. Many thanks.
