    "Works for my needs!"

    August 14, 2012  |   By jmrjudee

    Version: WavePad Sound Editor 5.15

    Pros

    Easy to use and believe me I am quite a novice with sound editing.

    Cons

    I use the trial version and haven't found any problems for what I use it for.

    Summary

    Great app and if I should get more serious about sound editing I would definitely upgrade to the full version.

    "NCH Customer Support or the lack of it."

    August 14, 2012  |   By peterblood50

    Version: WavePad Sound Editor 5.15

    Pros

    I've not used this product but have used othersprovided by NCH.

    Cons

    I have never used this particular NCH product but I do own their VideoPad video editor. Although it's a ery good product and I've mad numerous videos with it, I still have a problem with their Customer Service. It is non-existent. You'll never get an e-mail response to any inquery about the product. No phone number or help site...nothing.

    Summary

    Just FYI if you buy this product, and it may be a very good product, you are on your own. So roll up your sleeves and dive in.

    "worst customer support I've ever experienced"

    August 1, 2012  |   By ambrose22

    Version: WavePad Sound Editor 5.15

    Pros

    few if any

    Cons

    non existent customer support, even if you purchase one of their support plans.
    No online documentation / manuals that I could find.

    Summary

    Purchased Wavepad and Mixpad July 21st 2012. Also purchased "Gold Technical Support Service."
    Have emailed them twice, included purchase reference #, serial numbers and registration codes in the emails and have yet to heard a word back from them.

    As far as I can tell, without any help from paid-for customer support, all files I've imported are mono, even if the source is stereo. Selected streo in preference folder, but to no avail.

    As far as I can tell, without any help from paid-for customer support, I cannot use any of my Waves or Izotope plug ins. Contacted prior to purchase if my AU and VST plug in were supported and wal informed they did not respond to email unless product was purchased. That should have been my first red flag warning me not to buy this product.

    Would I recommend this software to a friend? No.
    Would I recommend this software to someone I didn't like? Yes, just so they could experience my frustration.
