WavePad: New Look, New Tools, New Features

Change doesn't have to be scary; in this case it’s really exciting: WavePad has a new look. Now, instead of tiny icons and long and packed menus, WavePad uses a ribbon toolbar to organize functionality by category. It really is easier to use than ever before.

WavePad continually receives praise for its user-friendliness. The interface isn’t intimidating to the beginner, yet doesn’t bury the advanced features more experienced audiophiles use on a regular basis. Its feature set includes recording, editing, and effects such as amplify, normalize, reverb, echo, and reverse and is extended by DirectX effects and VST plugin support, and an included royalty-free sound effect library. The new ribbon toolbar organizes all these aspects of the program, improving an already easy-to-use workspace.

Here is the Effects toolbar. Look how the features pop out at you:

  1. Excellent information. Wavepad is much more interesting with its new look, new tools & features.It is really user friendly. Wavepad is entertaining its users very nicely. Thanks for giving us article.

  2. Great article ...Thanks for your great information, the contents are quiet interesting. I will be waiting for your next post.

  3. Hi, have just downloaded WavePad v6.05 sound editor and want to use it to do my audio transcribing. I downloaded a trial to see how it works and must say the sound is very good. Before buying WavePad, is there any way that I can use a foot pedal? Without a foot pedal it will be useless for me. I have two different fitted Infinity foot pedals and two Olympus [R28 and R24] foot pedals as well. If anybody can help, PLEASE DO SO.

  4. I have the same question on the new Wavepad version. In the past, I have had to use Wavepad to clean the audio and then load it into Express Scribe to use my pedal. I hope that Wavepad is now capable of foot pedals. If I find out more info, I will let you know.

  5. exactly! the audio cleanup is great on wavepad for transcribing because a lot of transcription audios are not very great. But I need the footpedal to work with it. I exported the cleaned up file to expresscribe but it seems like it lost something in the transfer because it is still not as good as it was on wavepad.
