The quest to import third party ambisonic files has taken a strange and eldritch twist.

I now have three Macs here, all (I believe) set up the same way for quadrophonic recording. My iMac Pro runs Logic 10.4.4 and my Mac Mini 10.4.3. My Macbook Air runs Logic 10.3.3. Both the iMac and the Mini display the problem I describe above and require the workaround to load third party files. The Macbook, however, is all sweetness and light and imports first time.

At this point I think I shall retire into a corner and gibber a bit, if you don't mind. Once I get that out of my system I'll start investigating.

Apple is being true to form.
Logic updates = 2 or 3 steps forward, 1 step back.
Always.

Tried another Mac running Logic 10.3.3 (my wife's) and again import of an Ambisonic A format file went fine. This is looking increasingly like a fault introduced in 10.4.

Thought I'd fix this for you before our Apple Overlords notice and smite you for your lack of faith....

Not true. Sometimes it's just as many steps back :headbang:

Thank you for your assistance, Dave. I'm sure when the rapture comes you'll be among the very first to be lifted up to heaven to sit on St Jobs' right hand (not sure how comfortable that will be, mind).
