WavePad Audio Editor Free is intended for editing any type of audio digital recording. In this regard, the app supports a very long list of audio formats, including MP3, WAV, VOX, FLAC, VOX, WMA and OGG. It can also work with an ample range of sound frequencies. One of its advantages is that it lets you process batches of recordings with such operations as adding effects or converting to a different format. Moreover, it does not modify the source files in any way.
The tool’s interface is made of various floating windows that you can move or hide whenever you want. However, this layout can lead to confusion at times. Most of the features are available from the toolbar. For instance, there you can access various common editing operations, such as cutting, copying and pasting. It is also possible to merge segments taken from various source files as well as insert silence. And, to help you do that, you can use bookmarks to signal specific time points. Other features allow changing the recorded voice by shifting pitch, and even synthesizing speech from text.
The tool comes with a wide range of sound effects, like sound amplification, normalizing, amplifying, equalizing as well as adding reverb or echo. Fortunately, there is a set of tools to restore audio, reduce noise or remove undesirable sounds, such as clicks.
To conclude, WavePad Audio Editor Free comes with most of the features necessary for recording and processing sound files. Yet, you should know that there are other similar tools to do quite the same, so it is a good idea to try some of them and see which one works best for you. This product is free as long as you do not use it for commercial purposes.
