  • WAV tags we support

    For those interested in taking advantage of the WAV chunks we use in bitbox and blackbox. Here is some documentation:

    This link has the best documentation I have seen on the overall WAV structure:
    https://sites.google.com/site/musicg...av-file-format

    Our products read and write these optional tags:
    • smpl - loop points and root note
    • inst - key and velocity range
    • acid - beat count for clips
    • cue - slice points stored as cue points
    • JUNK - a small unused section to align the audio data with the block size on micro SD cards
    Here is information on the acid chunk:

      whats the best way of changing the tag outside of bitbox? doing it inside takes a real long time.

        I use Sound Forge on Windows. It's overkill for editing WAV tags. I'm not sure of a good option.

      could a software update change how the samples are loaded? it would be much easier if it used the midi note numbers rather than a wav tag. it would make multi-sample loading super easy.
