Wavepad Free Review

Fernando Ortega
Free version of the audio editing suite with access to many effects and tools, cutting, recording and general manipulation with support for MP3, WAV or OGG
A review of Wavepad Free by Fernando Ortega

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.

Wavepad Free features and highlights:
  • Sound editing functions include cut, copy, paste, delete, insert, silence, auto-trim and more
  • Audio effects include amplify, normalize, equalizer, envelope, reverb, echo, reverse and many more
  • Integrated VST plugin support gives professionals access to thousands of additional tools and effects
  • Supports almost all audio and music file formats including mp3, wav, vox, gsm, wma, au, aif, flac, real audio, ogg, aac, m4a, mid, amr, and many more
  • Batch processing allows you to apply effects and/or convert thousands of files as a single function
