Editors' Review

WavePad Sound Editor Free lets you do a lot to your music files, but it has some hang-ups that make it a little annoying to use. Many of the features you'd want from the program are locked away in other programs that the app suggests you download. Still, what's inside of this program is worth using if you need to edit your audio files.

WavePad Sound Editor Free is part of a suite of audio- and video-editing apps that help you polish your media files. The program will advertise all of those other programs while you're using this one, even to the point of putting features from the other programs in its toolbar. If that weren't enough, this download has a toolbar and homepage takeover attached, so be careful. However, when it comes to functionality and features, the program doesn't lack. It lets you insert any audio track and add effects and edits to it. In addition to fading and looping, you can also trim parts of the song off and even retouch the audio. It can even change the speed or size of the file to make it easy for you to share or send. All of the buttons and keys in the program's good-looking layout are labeled for convenience, and there are online tutorials that make the program very easy to understand. That's a huge benefit, because the program could be very difficult to newcomers.

Though it's frustrating that WavePad Sound Editor Free tries to goad you into downloading extra programs to unlock all of the features, it has enough power to edit music and do just about anything you like. Its ease of use and good menus are just a nice bonus.

    "deceitful program"

    September 25, 2014

    Version: WavePad Sound Editor 5.96

    Pros

    great editing tools. easy to use. extremely flexible. decent GUI

    Cons

    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

    Summary

    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

    "Powerful, easy to use, useless after trial period"

    March 25, 2013   |   By dont_matter

    Version: WavePad Free Sound Editor 5.13

    Pros

    Very user friendly even for the novice, as I was years ago when I first discovered this program (like version 1.xx).

    Cons

    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.

    "A powerful, easy to use tool for editing audio."

    March 16, 2013   |   By Master_Control

    Version: WavePad Free Sound Editor 5.13

    Pros

    It's easy to learn and easy to use.
    As a matter of fact, I'm using it right now in another window to preview music to cut samples out of.
    I use this program every day.

    The more advanced features take some trial and error to get used to, but it's a powerful, easy to use tool for editing audio.

    Cons

    You can only load 15 tracks at a time, and the "Noise Reduction" feature could use some tweaking, but aside from that it's ideal.

    Summary

    A powerful, easy to use tool for editing audio.
    Try it.
    If you don't like it, uninstall it.
