    Just use ctrtool. Open the command line where the cwav and ctrtool is and write the following command:
    ctrtool <cwav file> --wav=<output name for the file>.wav

    Easy peasy lemon squeezy :P

    I'd like to add, that if you want to use it in-game, make sure your WAV Files have a Loop.
    You can do it easily with Wavosaur, which is free.

    Well I don't see any cwav inside your folder so I can't really help.
    Could you send me via PM a screenshot of the build date of your ctrtool? Maybe you're using an old version :P
    Also attach an hex view of the file that you'd like to convert (most of the time the file extension inside games isn't the real one)

    I don't think you understand what I mean... I want to convert wav to cwav and not the oposite.

    I have always converted wav to cwav using the nintendo's sdk tools that were leaked time ago.
    I don't know if there is already a "free copyrighted" method.

    I have the tool. Can you please write the code I need to use in order to convert the files?

    oh. the command I posted converts a cwav to a wav file, so just use the nintendo thingy and you're good to go (really can't help now since I don't have the sdk stuff)

    I think you can simply drag&drop the wav on the ctr wave .exe

    bannertool can convert .wav to .bcwav/.cwav:

    bannertool.exe makecwav -i "your.wav" -o "your.cwav"

    I cant seem to get it to work with YATA+. I have the SDK files in the proper place but i keep getting an error. "Error While converting the file, run the command in cmd to check the output."

    With the latest version, now can now edit your track in Audacity and export it as .cwav directly from Audacity
