Wavepad Free is a very well-designed and extremely flexible sound editor for the Windows operating system. It functions both as an audio recording AND an advanced mixer which functions perfectly if you're wishing to convert those old record LPs and tapes to a digital format like MP3 or OGG.
Like the professional version, this program can capture audio from various devices. Pretty much anything that Windows can hear, Wavepad Free can hear. With the tracks that you've recorded, you can easily add certain audio effects, fade tracks, merge tracks, split tracks and many other functions that are included with the free version by NCH Software.
Though the features included in the professional version certainly do turn eyes, the freeware version is a little bit reduced in terms of functionality. Although one can certainly say that the freeware version is light years ahead of anything that has been included on default Windows installations over the years.
If you're looking for something simple and don't require all of the features, say, a DJ might require to get a party happening, Wavepad Free is the perfect lightweight addition and runs perfect on all modern versions of Windows.
Wavepad Free can edit audio, convert audio and record audio.Features and highlights
