Editors' Review


NCH's WavePad Sound Editor Master's Edition v 5.96 analyzes and edits audio, burns discs, converts text to speech, and adds all kinds of effects to WAVs and additional audio formats.


Intuitive layout: WavePad Sound Editor Master's Edition's Office-style Ribbon toolbar, integrated media player, and large spectral display create an intuitive user interface. Like other NCH tools, WavePad avoids dark themes in favor of a less flashy but more efficient layout.

Pro tools: WavePad boasts Fast Fourier Transform (FFT) and Temporal Fourier Transform (TFFT) frequency analysis, peak sample, beat detection, surround sound, stereo pan, reverb, multiple chained effects, click and pop repair, text to speech, a tone generator, a noise reduction menu, and many more pro-quality audio tools.

Bookmarks: You can bookmark clips for quick access to start and stop points, beats, and so on.

Automatic beats detection: WavePad finds and combines beats and displays beats-per-minute for fast sampling.


Pop-ups et al: Pop-up nags, ads in browser pages, and even the NCH Suite might strike some users as a bit heavy-handed for shareware, even during a trial.

Bottom Line

WavePad isn't as flashy as some audio editors, but megabyte-sized WAVs loaded quickly, and it's full of features and extras.

Editors' note: This is a review of the trial version of WavePad Sound Editor Master's Edition 5.96.

"Excellent Programme!"

December 19, 2014  |  By andyinteractive2006

 |  Version: WavePad Sound Editor Masters Edition 6.02


On the fly editing, very easy to use with lots of features to edit any track. A great feature of this programme is that it allows you to 'completely' remove any silence at the beginning and at the end of any track. Regardless of what format your edited track is, the end result will be in MP3 format (Even when mixing WAV and MP3 together) This also has a direct 'line-in' recording facility for recording any source.


My only minor disappointment is that I couldn't seem to find the 'record' level tab as occasionally a message appears asking you to increase the record level on 'below-normal' tracks - although this can be rectified after you have recorded by using the 'normalize' or 'amplify' facilities. One or two advanced facilities are disabled in the free version but for the average user, this shouldn't be a problem.


Overall one of the very best audio editing programmes I have used and it is so much better than other similar programmes who claim to be top dog!

I strongly recommend this for audio editing.

Simple to use and serves my needs - which is at present to edit music to play as ringtones for my phone. Plus I've found a great discount here:


Nothing bad to say.
