"Easy to use, effective and free."

August 31, 2015  |  By manatthewindow

 |  Version: WavePad Masters Edition 6.21

Pros

For basic editing functions (splicing, cropping, normalising etc.) it's very efficient. It's very easy to learn how to use it and the display of the wave forms makes it even easier to home in on the exact point you want to work on.

Cons

Understandable, the free package doesn't provide much more than the most basic functions so all quibbles should be seen in that context.
However, applying effects such as compression or EQ is very slow and cumbersome. These parameters can't be adjusted in real time as you listen to the track. If there's a way to build up a library of your preferred settings, I haven't found it yet. Apart from the standard, fixed presets that are offered, you can only keep the last user modification that you created but you have to rebuild that from scratch if you abandon it to try another setting. I don't know if that restriction applies to the full professional version; if it does, it's a major drawback that would stop me from even considering buying the upgrade.

Summary

It's an excellent free product which is easy to use and will definitely help you to improve the basic quality of your audio tracks without too much fuss and bother. So long as you don't expect too much, it's really good at what it does.

"NCH WavePad is the best sound editor I had ever used"

June 02, 2015  |  By Pastor Lenuf

 |  Version: WavePad Masters Edition 6.18

Pros

It handles virtually all I need to do when it comes to sound editing

Cons

I have never detected any defects yet.

Summary

We've used WavePad to edit almost 1000 audio MFF sermons (www.hameocbp.org/mff) already. We are always confident of WavePad; we will use it over and over for as many more audio sermons that need to be edited. We encourage all sound-handing people to go for it.

"Purr-fect for home!"

May 27, 2015

 |  Version: WavePad Masters Edition 6.17

Pros

I find this program great. It helps me in everyday mixing and stuff. Hard to create a detailed opinion, I'm not a pro in mixing and stuff. Yet enjoy it!

Cons

Hard to find, if any are. Maybe just that it's no freeware, but I ain't seen such a good one that is freeware. Guess you have to pay for good stuff... :)

"Fantastic audio editing tool"

May 04, 2015  |  By Quaker540

 |  Version: WavePad Masters Edition 6.17

Pros

-Well-made effects.
-Highly customizable audio conversion.
-Adjust the volume of a sound.
-Enhancing the pitch of a sound.
-Multi-tasking.
-Extremely small to RAM and CPU, you can open multiple audio files without stressing your computer.

99% of it is awesome, in general.

Cons

My only real gripe with WavePad Audio Editor is the audio graph. Not saying it is bad, but it feels a bit different from other audio editors (Like Adobe Audition, it is hard to get used at first).

Summary

Other than the audio graph, I highly recommend this product and even better, buy it to support the developers and have the best features. The trial version, to be honest, needs to be extended because it has REALLY limited features.

This comes from an audio engineer that works on sounds for over 8 years.
