I have some audio files I am importing from iTunes and they are fine upon import, but once I place them in a sequence they become "scratchy" ....??? any suggestions how to fix this?

    Convert the audio files to AIF format at 48khz, 16 bit BEFORE importing them into your FCE project.

    I am also trying to import audio from iTunes - but it is not working (see my message above) --

     

    I realized that the tapes I digitized are m4a rather than mp3 or aif... could that be the reason (the audio files are "grayed out" when I try to import them). But I digitized them using Garage Band, so why did they end up at m4a??

     

    How can I convert them to the appropriate format? Or do I have to re-digitize?
