Which sample formats can be used with Paax?

Paax is currently compatible with any 8/16 bit, mono/stereo, 11/22/44/48/96 KHz wav file. Wav samples are loaded to RAM and can be optionally embedded into the proprietary bank files, allowing the user to encapsulate all the audio data in a single file. Alternatively, wave files can be individually read from the hard drive, thus generating rather small bank files.
