load multi channel wav files in obspy


I’m trying to load a .wav file containing four channels in obspy, but it throws an error ‘Unknown format for file myfile.wav’ .

I guess this is related to what it says in the docs " As WAV files can contain only one data trace (as opposed to Mini-SEED or GSE2), the length of ‘st’ will be one" (however wav files can indeed contain more than one channel), so obspy cannot read multi channel ones?

Is there potentially an easy fix for that?

Many thanks,

Alexandre Szenicer.

Hi Alexandre,

if you can share the data, you could open a ticket on github and attach
the data there, so people can have a look.
