No .CAF support?

It wasn't avaiable in Live 8 and now I see it .CAF extension files don't work in Live 9 either.
That's too bad. I have a nice pack of multisampled EXS files that use CAF instead of WAV and I can't use them :((((

    Hey-- I've had this issue as well, but I found a nice workaround! :)

    I bought, the NCH software's "Switch Sound File Converter".  

    You can grab all your CAF files, drop them  in there- and export as wav, mp3, and about 15 other options.  They have a little check box you can select that says "Output  to same folder as source files".  Choosing this destination output, will keep all your files organized so you don't need to do any extra work- thus resulting in your files being in the same place you are used to.  

    CAF files are usually particular to Logic,and Garage Band (Apple).  You buy the "license rights" to use the sounds when you buy the computer, which is why they only want them to be used in their software.

    Good Luck!

    You can also use them in pro tools so i don't think it's an apple ecosystem lock out.
