Tried it; didn't like it. Went to edit a flac file and you have to be connected to the web. Which makes me think the thing is not a complete editor and it has to phone home or use web based data to perform it's fuction. I'm not a developer; so that's my best guess. Seems like something fishy is going on here. I would avoid this for security reasons unless there is some sort of verifiable explanation of why an audio file editor has to call home to function. And the GUI is total amateur night. Looks like an old java app. $50 for that? ...not from me.

To keep using the software for free, as advertised, remove the ~/Library/Preferences/ByHost/com.nchsoftware.wavepad... - file.

BEWARE -- This software is really a TRIAL, After a trial period it turns into CRIPPLEWARE. From the developer's website: "A number of professional tools for WavePad are only permanently available if you have purchased an upgrade to WavePad Master's Edition. These features include the Batch File Processor, keyboard macros, Projects, Bookmarks, Regions and the Region Assembler. You can purchase and upgrade to WavePad Master's Edition here. ..." A wave editor without support for Regions is pretty useless IMHO. If you are looking for a good FREE Sound Editor, try audacity.

I was looking for good and cheap (broadband) noise reduction software. Well, WavePad is not as good as SoundSoap Pro, but much better than AudaCity, Amadeus Pro, SoundSoap SE or Logic Express 8.

Their web site SCREAMS Windows, and sure enough, there is a Windows version. Challenge: Name _one_ program that has a Windows version that doesn't stink on OS X. OK, Skype. But name one more.

I know it's an old thread but maybe what you really mean was, "name one developer or software that did not start as WindersWare that doesn't suck..." . And no I can't think of any, lol. That'd be a great thread on another forum...ok, off topic but I could not resist...

Seems like a decent start, but OMFG that interface is HIDEOUS. Wow, let's cram a few MORE buttons on there, shall we?? Get an interface designer and a beta-testing group (oh, and stick to Mac HIG and convention please) and I think you may have a winner at some point.

Definitely suited my purposes quickly. The interface does need a bit of cleanup, and Save isn't bound to command + s, but in general I can do gain reduction and noise/hiss reduction in just a few clicks. Plus, its free. 5-stars.
