The decision was made last year to not support AAC (M4A) files. It really came
down to licensing.

Subject: [studiorecorder] question for Rob
Hey Rob. I have used studio recorder for radio production work for many years,
and it works so well.
I do have a question about support for M4a files
Is there any possible plans for support of M4A files in studio recorder. Some
times we have to deal with m4a files at the station. People sometimes record
reports on there phones, and send them in to the production team. At the moment
we have to convert these files in soond forge or gold wave, before we can use
them in studio recorder. So I was wondering if at some stage you may be able to
add support of these files.
I totally understand if this is not possible. We will continue to use studio
record as it is very good for stereo two track recording, doing running edits,
and mixing files together.
