Corrupted Cakewalk Bundle Files

Recommended Posts

Is Cakewalk still helping with old corrupted bundle files?  Any editor programs or tricks to get midi or audio data out of them?  

I don't save anything in that file format any longer, this was done back when it was suggested.  

Getting desperate...

I don't recall anyone reporting a corrupted bundle file being fixed by anyone, unfortunately. There's been sooo many desperate posts about them during the years, but I don't think I've ever heard of  one being rescue'd. My memory may fail, of course. I wish you luck.

Thanks for the replies. 

I did find some old posts on how bundles are kind of put together, being essentially RIFF files with audio chunks and that the project file is thrown at the end.  With that in mind, I can use a Hex editor and open the bundle and look at the structure but it makes no sense.  I guess I was hoping someone had figured a little of that out so I could grab the project portion at the end and see if it's ok. 

The only thing I really want is the MIDI.  That's it.  That drum performance was the best I've ever done and I really wanted to use a better, more modern drum sample pack on it and update the sound.   The sound from back then is horrid.  Ruins it.  

 

Oh, and the shift-open technique is pretty useless as far as I can tell.  It opens the project with no tracks, no audio, no midi, nothing.  Not sure what the value is.
