Full featured professional audio editor for recording and edit music, voice and other audio recordings.
BTD STUDIO REVIEW: NCH Software Wavepad 5 is not really such a bad piece of software for DAW recording. We have this in our studio arsenal of tools and actually really like it. I would recommend the Master’s Edition (You can upgrade after purchase of basic version, sometimes for free) because it has more music editing features but the basic version is worth a try if you are just starting out. I choose this software because I did not want to shell out money to buy Steinberg’s WabLabs Mastering Software. I noticed that Wavepad had a lot of features that Steinberg’s WavLabs had.
I don’t use this for Mastering music per say, which I am sure you can, I use it mostly for quick editing. At times I have seen it to be a little bit buggy when you select an effects feature but somehow it seems to work it’s self out. You might be reading the Amazon reviews on how NCH pushes upgrades and other NCH software on you. They are right, NCH does do that. At first it was a bit annoying but I ignore it now and only use the features within Wavepad. All in all, it’s a pretty cool piece of software. Would not use it as your main DAW but a quick fix of wav files, it works like a charm.
