Can't Read WAV Files on FCP X on Yosemite? Solved!

Stream/Import WAV Files to FCP X Incompatibility Issues

Summary: I recently did the switch to Yosemite. I now find some WAV files to be no longer readable through FCP X, Preview App, QuickTime, and etc. But, I can open them through VLC, and also Soundtrack Pro." Any good suggestions there we can take to make FCP X read WAV files on Yosemite?


Most computer multimedia programs play music stored in the WAV file format, which has been around since the early days of personal computing. The Mac comes standard with the FCP X program, which recognizes WAV files as well as several other file formats. In this case, why someone there still ask for the answers to smoothly play WAV files on FCP X on Yosemite?

"An FCP X project with this WAV files has already been edited, with multiple cuts (46 to be exact) throughout the 35 minute timeline. The file is still visible on timeline with all cuts but is now silent." "I have a translation track on a WAV file which I previously imported into FCP X and then removed. For some unknown reason to me it will not allow me to reimport it. I've tried both drag and drop and using the "import" menu method. I do not receive any error messages but it does not show up in the events."

It is important to understand the various issues that may come up when dealing with different formats. First of all, a WAV file is basically an audio file for Windows used for storing audio on a PC, similar to the AIFF format used on a Mac. WAV is the main format used on Windows systems for raw and typically uncompressed audio. It can hold compressed audio, but the most common WAV format contains uncompressed audio.

Even though WAV files are compatible with FCP X in some cases, it is best to convert them to an AIFF format. This will save system resources when FCP X plays the audio files. Otherwise, you may encounter dropped frames or an annoying beeping sound even other incompatible issues while FCP X plays your WAV sequence.
