    Same problem here in 2018.1.9

    It does not happen with other projects, so there must be a way to work it around.

    Same error on Version 2018.2.18f1

    I even tried pulling the repository with sound files imported by a friend - and I now can't even open the project itself.

    I was getting the same error when dropping the files directly into the editor. Started happening since Catalina update....damn catalina, it has so many issues : (

    I have this issue as well on Unity 2018.1.6f1 and macOS Catalina 10.15.3 Beta. Importing Audio files in any way to the editor hangs or crashes the system.

    I am also having this issue.
    While I open my project stuck at Import assets while reaching audio file.
    Problem started after upgrading MacOS to version 10.15.

    My unity version is 2018.2.21f1
