For reasons I needn't go into, I recently tried dragging a 24bit, 44.1kHz WAV clip into W9 for a project. The clip in question was created and saved outside W9 (in Guitar Rig).

Anyway, the clip plays back fine in W9 but does not display the "waveform" of the audio. I guess I need to process it somehow for that to happen.

I did apply melodyne - and got the usual mess of blobs - but I just want the normal waveform view of the audio to edit in the usual way. Any ideas?

If it's audio and it plays, it should be visible. Do you just see a horizontal line - if so, it might just be that the audio level was extremely low... or it has to be zoomed into ?

Have you accidentally disable audio thumbnails?
Click on the "Options" button in the bottom left, then "Clip view options" and ensure "Show waveforms" is enabled.

Under Options / Clip view options, have you turned off "show waveforms"?
