"An EXCELLENT product of its best!"

January 24, 2007  |  By AnubisGFX

 |  Version: WavePad Free Edition 3.02

Pros

This product gives you a LOT of effects and edit functions, and it could be used for anything. However it takes a little time to learn. Great software.

Cons

Basiclly nothing. I was about to comment that it might not be so user friendly, but think again.

"Alright"

January 02, 2007  |  By darkenrvisions

 |  Version: WavePad Free Edition 3.02

Pros

It is a mediocre editor and con convert any audio file into any audio file

Cons

Well it is just a trial, but you can always redownload it.

Also when it converts the songs sometimes they do not work. And the editing is just very basic

"Not bad at all."

November 24, 2006  |  By barraclou

 |  Version: WavePad Free Edition 3.02

Pros

It is really stable on Windows 98 and free. It can achive all the basic expections of an audio editor, including to import and to export in MP3 format.

Cons

Limited features. The main (wave) windows is a little too undetailed and it might a little complicated to easily hightlight all the section you want.

"V. 3.0 was much better"

November 19, 2006  |  By traumatized

 |  Version: WavePad Free Edition 3.02

Pros

This was a great product to use-- all of the features were enabled, there were many input and output files to choose from, and of course, it was "free."

Cons

I recently had a system crash and I lost the older version of this program. The old program did have a trial, but the trial would be unlimited in the end.

I recently downloaded this one, and I am disappointed with it. It has an irritating "BUY NOW!" message appearing upon startup of the program. I do not understand why CNET would classify this as "free/no limitations."

It works fine until the trial expiration date, and then everything starts to screw up.

I do not recommend this new version to anyone who would like a free, flawless program.

"AGGRAVATING!"

November 16, 2006  |  By MAPOFUSA

 |  Version: WavePad Free Edition 3.02

Pros

AT THIS POINT - NOT MUCH.

I LIKED THE PROGRAM JUST FINE TILL I GOT A MESSAGE THAT 'YOUR TRIAL PERIOD HAS EXPIRED. PLEASE PURCHASE THIS PROGRAM TO CONTINUE ACCESSING ALL OF THE FEATURES'.

Cons

THIS PROGRAM IS LISTED AS 'FREE' AND 'UNLIMITED'. THAT IS NOT TRUE.

I DOWNLOADED THE PROGRAM FOR THAT REASON, BUT NOW I AM RECEIVING MESSAGES THAT SAY 'YOUR TRIAL HAS EXPIRED. WOULD YOU LIKE TO PURCHASE THIS SOFTWARE TO CONTINUE USING THESE FEATURES?' DON'T GET ME WRONG, I AM NOT OPPOSED TO TRIAL SOFTWARE, IF AND ONLY IF, YOU ARE AWARE THAT IT IS ONLY A LIMITED TRIAL TO BEGIN WITH. IF YOU ARE DOWNLOADING THIS, THINKING THAT IT IS 'FREE' SOFTWARE; SKIP IT & KEEP LOOKING.

SOMEONE EITHER MISCATEGORIZED THIS, OR SOMEONE IS NOT ON THE UP AND UP. THIS IS MISLEADING AND FALSE!

"Watch Out for "Free" gimmicks"

November 15, 2006  |  By Mononblock

 |  Version: WavePad Free Edition 3.02

Pros

Small package, simple, helps provide extra space, I question the results produced which is described in the "cons"

Cons

It's a FREE program? NOT... Limited access and since you can't save files how can you evaluate the results? "Free" is the word used loosely here, to gain full access you need to purchase the "Master" editions and bundled packages offered. Free = Audacity, so does 'Better', much better. I don't mind 'free with limits' or 'free with certain restrictions applied' because I know what to expect in advance. This is not promoted that way, here or on other 'free download' sites. My theory is if they 'gimmick' once, they'll gimmick more, and more, and more, and more, and more... so is it a quality product or a marketing scheme? Which means they are more devoted to profit then product in my book.
