The Wave Repair application was developed to help users restore WAV files that were recorded from vinyl records.
It can also be used to process recordings made from tapes, but its restoration features are intended mainly for records.
Moreover, Wave Repair can be used to restore large WAV files and redraw waveforms at any level of zoom.
Here are some key features of "Wave Repair":
· Direct to disk recording
· Linear and Bezier interpolation
· Spectral replacement
· Fade-in and fade-out
· Removal of unwanted segments
· Waveform smoothing
· Various block copying facilities
· Reduction of vinyl hash ("decrackling")
· Broadband noise reduction
· Automatic click detection and repair with realtime preview
· Manual review of detected clicks
· Equalization, filters and channel mixer with realtime preview
CDR Preparation Facilities:
· Compression and Volume Adjustment with realtime preview
· Automatically find track split points
· Split tracks on CD block boundaries
· Create CDRWin-style cue sheets (supports tracks and indexes)
· Waveform and Spectral display modes
· Unlimited levels of Undo and Redo
· Macro facility

· Interface to the clipboard
General File Handling:
· Works only with 16 bit stereo WAV files (44.1 or 48 kHz)

· Attempting to scroll with the mouse wheel when there is no WAV file loaded would result in an access violation. This has been fixed.
· If a macro includes a step that does a playback, then if used in batch mode a divide by zero error would occur, followed by Wave Repair hanging. This has been fixed.
· When executing a macro in normal (non-batch) mode, if a step marked as is invalid then the macro was aborted without any feedback to the user. It has been pointed out that the option relates to the individual step, not the macro as a whole. Therefore an error message informing the user that the macro has been aborted is now output in these circumstances.
· On initial setup of soundcards, if no soundcard is selected a "list out of bounds" error would occur, and then Wave Repair would need to be closed from the taskbar. This has been fixed.
