Robust Feature Set
The editing suite comprises basic to advanced functionalities such as cut, copy, delete, paste, silence, insert, compression, and pitch shifting. The audio effects include normalize, amplify, envelope, equalizer, echo, reverb, and reverse. Also, WavePad supports pretty much all kinds of music and audio file formats, including mp3, vox, wav, wma, gsm, aif, real audio, and aac. Batch processing permits applying effects and/or transforming several thousand files as one function. Also, you may create regions and bookmarks to easily locate, assemble and recall segments of lengthy audio files.
WavePad’s user interface is simple and straightforward, which even an amateur would feel comfortable using. The simplicity, however, doesn’t mean compromises on the feature-set front. The software comprises a large tool-set that helps accomplish a wide range of audio editing tasks. The layout is clean and inviting, and the easy-to-navigate toolbar can be found atop the audio editor. The toolbar tools get altered as you click different ribbon tabs. Needless to say, it is quite handy from an organizational perspective. If required, you may even customize the toolbar so that accessing any tool you wish becomes easier.
