    I can’t figure out a way to import a multitrack to usb drive, and the refence guide has little info on this. I tried 16 tracks of mono 96khz 32 bit .WAV files in AHSQ/USBMTK/SQ-MT001 map , but they don’t load on the sq5 . What am I doing wrong ?

    I also tried playing stereo wav’s : this works but when I have more than 80 songs in the playback file list the sq5 duplicates the last 20 songs several times , is this a bug ?

    On my SQ-5 the Stereo Playback doesn´t work with any file format. Wich file format do you use for stereo playback and how did you create these files?

    of course, it doesn’t work with every file format.
    that’s what the manual says.

    I used an ancient program called audiograbber , which rips wav’s from cd . Most of my music is mp3 but converting it to wav didn’t work in most cases , lots of distortion

    I used “audiograbber” in the past, it didn’t really work from Win7 on.

    too bad, that was a simple and reliable program with which I surely converted hundreds of my CDs to mp3.

    the SQ only reads wav-files anyway…

    Record a ~10s of nothing to the usb drive. Then use audacity to look at hte file. Then you can convert into that format. Make sure file names are exactly the same.

    @ wolfgang : No problems here with audiograbber (win10) , install in c:/audiograbber instead of c:/program files/audiograbber

    Also, each track in the multitrack needs to be EXACTLY the same length.

    The QU-drive specifications for USB drive recording/playback will be same for SQ (except for 96kHz). Look at the QU forums & documentation for help.

    Figured out the multrack thing : not only it needs to be 16 tracks of 96khz wav files of the same filesize , it also has to be 24 bit . Anything else won’t work . Audacity seems to be the way to resample , I use studio one as a daw but when I resample to 24 bit in studio one the files are recognized as 16bit in windows and not played the sq5 ,only audacity sees it as 24 bit : don’t know why ..

    Thanks, I’ll try that.
