Audio files have no sound after crash

I was editing audio in a multitrack session when Audition crashed. After I reopened the program, the audio files all played without sound - not just in Audition, in other programs too. I can still see their waveforms in the multitrack session, but when playing, the level at the bottom shows nothing. Other programs tell me the files are completely mute. Is there any way to recover the audio since Audition still remembers the waveforms?

What causes the visual display of files is completely separate from any of the actual content - that's what .pkf files are for, and what they do - the visual part of the thing. I'm a little surprised that the audio has really gone though - Multitrack is basically a player, and doesn't wreck files at all - in fact it doesn't have a mechanism for doing that.

 

Are you sure that it's the actual files you are trying to play, and not the .pkf files? That would give you the impression that the files were empty, certainly...

Okay, that explains why audition still shows the waveform in Multitrack. I guess it also means the actual audio is gone and can't be recovered... I'm definitely trying to play the wav files, not the pkf. Still, thank you for your fast reply.
