Convert Mp3 to wave for Boss BR900???

I have lots of great backing tracks in mp3 format I would like to load onto my Boss BR900, but it only takes wave files. I tried converting them, but it will still not accept them. It says "unsupported file type." What can I do? Thanks in advance!!!

Which program did you use to convert them?

You can probably do this in iTunes.

The major caveat here is that this works like video. Wave files are much bigger because there's more potential fidelity, but you're not improving anything sound-wise upconverting. It's like watching VHS on a 4K TV if that makes sense. (I put this here to ensure good information is spread about this).

When I was mastering full-time, I had a guy bring me MP3s to master (ugh) and I suggested that he re-export to wave instead. The next day he comes back with wave files, but I could tell he just converted them based on the spectrum analyzer.

You may want to make sure you are running the latest firmware on the BR900.
