Logic timestamp very annoying

This Logic Timestamp is stopping me from importing files into native instrument samplers. it is also messing up the flextime function and it doesn't make a difference whether I use wav, aif or caf. ANYONE?!!Help? I haven't found a solution to this on the net and it seems to be impossible to remove it...

I haven't personally tried this so I don't know if it works, but what about saving as AIFF and then converting to WAV with a program such as Max from

sounds like a nightmare.

if you save the whole thing as a new project into a new folder then, making sure that project is loaded,
go to the Audio window and select all the Audiofiles, then run the copy/convert & convert them all to aif
(making sure that you have (change file references in Audio window ticked) that might work.

if a whole lot of files are duplicated but the references have changed in the arrange to the aif files then
you can maybe weed out the Wavs in the Audio by sorting them by filetype and then selecting delete Audiofiles.
while the Wavs are highlighted. then saving the song.

This is all on a project copy so the other should still be in tact if you make a bad mistake.

from what i understand, only the Broadcast wavs should have Time stamping.
least that's what other people seem to be having this problem with.

Logic only uses BWF for WAVE files, so only AIF and maybe SDII are the other possibilities for an Audio Format.

to my knowledge only the wav files are timestamped.

Hey guys,

thanks for your replies, I will try your suggestions.
yes it is a nightmare
I also noticed though that the flextime function in logic just isn't that good.
shame about that. I recorded a band last week at 88.2 in logic and wanted to correct some 16s from a guitar but after quantizing it just degraded the soundquality to a non professional level. very annoying. I dont want to switch to protools :(...

@musiclab: all the files I have in the audiobin are timestamped regardless of the format. There is always a clock symbol next to the b$%&tar%&/ds
