Converting losslessy between WAVC and WAV - Possible?

Hello, on behalf of a friend I would like to ask if it's possible to convert audio files in *.wavc format into standard *.wav format and back into *.wavc without harming the audio quality.

I have tagged a sample below of some *.wavc audio in the hope someone knows a way of converting this file type.

They have already tried WinAMP with the .acm plugin, howeverr that didn't work - and Audacity couldn't read the file.

Thank you in advance and have a wonderful day!

Wow, what a riddle! You have to remove the first 16 bytes (some kind of header) of the files so that they start with the FSB5 signature. Now they are FSB files (whatever that is), extract them into WAV with FMOD FSB files extractor. I have no idea how you can convert them back to FSB/WAVC.

Thanks for that reply! Upon further investigation, we might not need to go from wav back into wavc so your method will probably do the trick (although we're yet to test).

I'll update this comment with any progress my friend makes. I'm sure that they are also very grateful.

By the first 16 bytes, is this something that would be removed using notepad or hex editor etc...? I'm sorry if that's more of a schoolboy question however that's out of my own curiosity.

Yes, with a hex editor.

Like Joe Forster/STA said, drag and drop wavc files to this program to make them fsb, and then use that fsb extractor to convert to wav.
