I am new here, I have been searching where to ask TAK file question but could not get it. Therefore, asking here.

I use a German Music Making software and sometime files are in TAK format which gives error in the software. If I could convert them in to wave that will be easier to use in the same software. I wonder if there is any method I can convert(in batch mode if possible) TAK file to Wave or Ogg format? (preferably wave format).

Any help in this regard will be appreciated.

Thank you

You can use TAudioConverter. http://www.fosshub.com/TAudioConverter.html I suggest portable version.

...or you know..TAK? http://thbeck.de/Tak/Tak.html

Click Decompress - Add File - Decompress. Done.

Except that TAK will choke on any non-ascii characters in the filenames, while TAudioConverter will not.

Hi, thank you very much for the reply. I have downloaded the portable version because on that website one user left the remarks as follows:
"
Anonymous February 25, 2014
Great all-in-one tool for transcoding audio and extracting audio streams from video without re-encoding. The installer version also installs two obtrusive programs for fixing your PC, regardless of your choice during TAC's installation routine, so get the portable version, extract to some suitable folder and make a shortcut to the executable. [in Windows 8 with Classic Start Menu I simply do:right click>Pin to "Start" menu (Classic Shell)]
"

TAC should be fine with Japanese paths from my experience, so I'm not sure why it's not adding the files.
You could also load the files with foobar2000 and convert to wav (or any other format) using that.

it's worth mentioning that if you do try foobar2000, you'll need this additional component for it to read tak files...

@nihon94 the link you provided is invalid I think.

Edit:
OK I got the link, it's http://www.sendspace.com/file/y3qqmq
If files aren't added, then there must be something in the Main log about that.

Hi, thank you for information. I have downloaded the main foobar2000 and additional component but it seems Foobar2000 is an audio player I wonder how could it convert TAK file to WAV?

Thank you

Hi thank you for the reply.
Something in the Main Log? you said.
Is there anything I got to do? or you mean something in the TAK file which I wanted to add?

Thank you

You can see "Logs" button at top-right. After trying to add TAK files, click to it to see logs. You should be able to see why files aren't added.

Hi, I appreciate your followup and quick reply.
Now I got it. I checked the Log and found out the duration is not valid.
Actually the TAK files are part of Music Making Blocks they are of few seconds that could be the reason.
In Music making software I have to arrange those small audio blocks to compose music that is why they are very short.

So, it means if the audio file is of few seconds can not be converted. crying.gif

Thank you once again.

Right, I have configured foobar so long ago, I forgot .tak support is not built-in.

If you're in a rush, maybe foobar2000 is a better option for now.

Hi, thank you for reply.
Isn't foobar2000 an audio player? Will it convert Tak to Wave?
However I have downloaded foobar2000 and its component just waiting for
proper answer then I will install.

foobar2000 is more than just an audio player. It has lots of components which can do all sorts of things, for example conversion, batch renaming/moving files, tagging, verifying files etc etc. So yes, if you install the needed component, you can use it to convert tak to wav

Thank you for answer.
I did installed but it seems as my audio files are very short it showed error. Same thing happened in the TAudio. Therefore uninstalled and all of its components.

I don't think it's really a problem of file length, that would be weird... Can you play those files with anything? Are you sure those files are really TAK, as in, "Tom's Audio Kompressor" and not some other format coincidentally also named .tak? You could upload one of those file somewhere and let us give it a go.

I just tried TaudioConverter software and it wouldn't even recognise the .TAK files, so it couldn't convert what it cannot read.
Thank you
