Software Description

NGWave is an Audio Editor for Windows. NGWave offers many features you won't find elsewhere, and is lightening fast.

With NGWave, you can visually edit your audio files, with speed and precision you won't find in other editors. You can easily Record, Process, and Save sound or music files.

Fast Editing
NGWave uses a revolutionary internal storage format that makes most edits lightening fast. While other editors often take massive amounts of time to do something as simple as deleting a bit of silence, NGWave doesn't break a sweat.

Many of NGWave's features work much faster than in other sound editors.

Basic Editing Functions
Of course NGWave supports your standard editing functions. You can select any portion of audio, and Copy, Cut, Paste Insert, Paste Replace, Paste Mix and Delete.

Adding to this, however, most features give you the option to Fade Edges. This means that when you, for example, Mute a selected portion of audio, the edges will fade out and back in. This helps to avoid pops and clicks at the boundaries of an edit. The fade time is selectable.

Realtime Preview
Unlike a lot of editors, you can preview most edits in realtime. For example, when you click the Reverb button, you can click on Preview to start playing back your selection. You can then change your parameters, and hear the results in realtime -- without having to stop playback!

NGWave also features a Bypass button, allowing you to easily A/B the processing for quick comparison.

32-Bit Internal Format
For a quality that is unmatched, NGWave utilizes a 32-Bit unbounded floating-point data format. This allows hundreds of decibels of headroom, so you will never have to worry about clipping. If an edit caused your audio to go above 0db, simply reduce the volume. NGWave does not actually clip your data until you choose to save the file.

This also helps make many of NGWave's processing functions very fast. Many editing functions require floating-point numbers internally, and with NGWave there's no need to constantly convert back and forth.

File Formats Support
NGWave supports most WAV file formats. You can open, save, and create 8-, 16-, or 32-Bit integer files, as well as 32- and 64-Bit IEEE floating point formats. One or Two channels are supported (Mono or Stereo).

Additionally, if you have the appropriate CODECs installed, you can open, save, and create MP3 files.
