WavePad Sound Editor is an application that allows users to easily edit sound tracks in various ways in order to either increase quality or create a unique product. Windows provides standard WAV files that can be worked with and they are larger than MP3 files. However, they contain more information and they have a higher overall quality so working with such a file allows for better outputs. Because of this, a specialized tool should be used and this freeware application can be easily installed in order to provide quick access to various editing tools.
The application’s interface is quite simple and it is mainly similar to that of a media player, designed with shades of gray. Multiple spectral displays are available, depending on the settings used by the user in order to edit a certain file. If multiple displays are used, each will make use of a separate track and this way, finer effects can be achieved. High amounts of zoom are available using these spectral displays. This way, certain effects can be placed precisely where the user wants them to start and end.
The toolbar is another good place that contains various elements, such as noise reduction and pitch settings. These can be used in order to drastically alter a sound file, but they are only the tip of the iceberg, as more than thirty different effects can be used on each track. There is a batch converter available in order to work with more WAV files at once and certain selections can be exported to MP3 files in order to create ringtones, for example. Other extras is also available, such as a converter that can transform text files to sound tracks in order to create audio books. Such a WAV editor is useful for both amateur and professional users.
