I am having an issue with exporting audio files in Audacity 2.1.2. It seems that whichever file format that I select, the file is always saved in .aiff format. Is this an issue that anyone else has experienced?
It’s an Audacity bug, but it only happens if you select “Other uncompressed files”. The bug is listed in the 2.1.2 Release Notes.
The file is saved with the correct audio content, so all you need to do is change the extension, either before or after exporting.
This issue has already been fixed in our source code, so it will be fixed when the next Audacity 2.1.3 version is released.
Thanks for your response Gale.
