Extract wav files from Yamaha AW4416 and AW2816 backup files. All audio tracks, regions and sample data can be extracted from an AW4416 backup file. All formats are supported, 16-bit at 48kHz, 16-bit at 44.1kHz, 24-bit at 48kHz and 24-bit at 44.1kHz.
The benefits of using AWExtract over using the AW4416 built-in wave export function are many. The major advantage is the ability to extract all tracks from a single CD, where the AW4416 only allows a single wave file (mono or stereo) on a CD using wave export.
The wave extraction using AWExtract is also much faster than using wave export on the AW4416. And since you should be making backups of all your work anyways (you are backing up right?.) you can just use the backup to extract the wave files.
AWExtract can also be a bit more useful than flying tracks in realtime over ADAT to the PC. With AWExtract you get sample-accurate transfers, with regions intact and saved as separate files if needed. You also can extract the Stereo Track and sample pad audio with AWExtract, which would be a bit trickier using ADAT transfers.
AWExtract will also be quicker than flying tracks via ADAT in some situations, especially if you only have 8 channels of ADAT I/O available, because you will need to make multiple ADAT passes to get all tracks transferred.
