I was recording live performances on my laptop using sfrecord~ today.
During one performance the power went out. (Agh!!) The laptop was
still running, but obviously the external hard drive I was recording
to went off.
The resulting aiff file shows as 1.9Gb in the Finder (it was a long
performance!), but the programme I'm using to split these files
(Sample Manger) won't load it.
I had a look with SoundHack,
if I just "open" it, it shows it as a zero length/zero mbs 6 channel
If I use "open any..." it says it's a headerless file, but then it
says the same with one of the ok files that i tried.
There used to be a little app in OS9 that one could use to fix aiff
files that were wonky due to an attack of recordus interuptus, but
how does one do it in OSX?
