What is a WFM file?
WFM files have multiple uses, and Pro Tools Waveform Cache is one of them. Read more about the other uses further down the page.
Pro Tools Waveform Cache File
WFM Pro Tools waveform caches are a file type employed in Avid Pro Tools, a widely used Digital Audio Workstation (DAW) program for music creation, audio post-production, and sound engineering.
These files provide an on-screen visualization of a session's sound wave and can improve the program's responsiveness by displaying waveform previews more quickly.
Whenever a Pro Tools session is initiated, a WFM file is generated for each audio file within the session. The WFM file stores visual information of an audio waveform, which is then displayed in the software's editing window.
