Useful, and compact application. Lower score due to lack of support for flac. Support for other codecs like ac3, aac, mp2, i.e. through ffmpeg, would be also very welcome.

This really must be a highly recommended free Wave editor. Incredible, just one small exe as well. Light on size but not in power.

It is very intuitive, and for editing yours wavs, cropping, fading in, and fading out, and a whole lot more you'll be done in a flash with this. And VST plugins as well.

I really can't recommend this enough. I've been editing audio for ten years and this has to be one of the handiest free editors I've come across. Stick it on a flash drive and you can take it with you anywhere. Just surprised the people at VideoHelp haven't rated it. Usually on the ball with stuff like this!

Oh, blisteringly fast on both Windows 2000 SP4 and Windows XP SP3 - as I have tried on both today.

Graphical support for high quality VST plugins - better than Audacity in this regard.
