Advanced tools include sound spectral analysis (FFT) and more. Load sound files directly from CD and work with multiple files at the same time in separate screens.
great editing tools. easy to use. extremely flexible. decent GUI
It's not really free. It stops functioning as a free program with out notice. Expensive. Many other programs out there cost less with many more features
If this program were truly free as advertized I would use it consistently and probably upgrade to a paid version. however since the program stopped functoning as a free program in the middle of my project.. I can not recommend this program to anybody.. its a shame. seemed like it might just be a great program
If NCH software REALLY wants to offer freebie versions of ANY of its software, they could do lings like LIMITING THE NUMBER OF WORKING FEATURES (But keep the ability to SAVE a file free though (some developers don't do this))
No need to engage in DECEITFUL practices like they do now
Very user friendly even for the novice, as I was years ago when I first discovered this program (like version 1.xx).
USELESS AFTER TRAIL PERIOD! I recently built a new pc, thus I had to reinstall a ton of software. This was one of the programs to reinstall. After the 14-day trial ended I was no longer able to save any of my work. It comes back with a pop up that states, this feature is only available with the Master's Edition.
