whenever I try to load up a sample I have an error..

I tried reinstall the reaktor and reboot my computer ...

Is there anyone who knows what's going on?

Thank you

    Delete the special characters from your wave file and it works fine.

    At first I was like "Maybe Reaktor can't handle Korean?" as well, but when trying to replicate this it worked fine on my end. The ₩ indicates a "/" for whatever reason, thus "작업물" (Korean for "work") is actually a folder and "r vol1_T.wav" the sample.

    Is, by any chance, your .wav corrupted, invalid or otherwise unfit for Reaktor to use?

    Edit: Just as a test, I made a simple beep sound via Massive X, exported it as a .wav file, imported it into Reaktor and got no error. I then exported the same sound as a .mp3, renamed it into a .wav, imported it and got the same error. Reaktor doesn't support .mp3 files, so I assume the OP just got one and simply renamed the extension - but that's just a guess.

    check the bit depth of the sample. I am not sure for now, but if i remember right Reaktor can´t import 32bit or 24bit wav samples

    Do you clear the wave name from unspecific characters?
