FML... the saga continues.
Just connected my phone recording device to my mac via USB expecting to quickly copy over some of the audio I'd recorded recently. Par for the course the devices uses some arcane file format called .xtr which is fucking unreadable and not convertible.
Doing some research. one more hurdle. I have to figure out how to convert these .xtr to a .wav or .mp3 or something I can open on my mac.
