is there a way to import more than 16 channels as raw data?
I'm trying to recover a 40 channels aiff file that was not closed
Any other suggestion about how to do that?

This list is specifically for questions about the Nyquist programming
language as implemented in Audacity. For general help questions please

Import Raw Data is hardcoded to 16 channels maximum and can only work on one
file at a time. If you had 40 tracks open in Audacity and you are using
Audacity 1.2.x then the data is split into small .au blockfiles, alternately
arranged per channel. The first .au file (for example, b00001.au) in the
data folder will be the first blockfile for channel 1, b00002.au the first
blockfile for channel 2, b00041.au the second blockfile for channel 1 and so
on. Therefore you need to try the Crash Recovery utility to recover these
files so they are sorted correctly:
I don't know if Audacity Recovery Utility supports recovering 40 channels,
the command-line version only supports 16 channels. But you can always sort
the .au files into subfolders for say 10 channels per folder and work on
If you are using Audacity 1.3.x it "should" recover the project
automatically when you restart.
