Re: wave editors

I don't think it's possible to fix something that was improperly edited. but... one of the more common pc programs are sony sound forge 8 or adobe audacity. I think they are the same thing.

Re: wave editors

it is actually adobe audition, audacity is another (free) prog

doesn't matter so much what progs you use, its your skills and ears that make the most diff. it sounds like these recordings don't have much hope, and if its your first try you should start with an easier project!

Re: wave editors

Hi, here are my thoughts for what it's worth.

For editing :
On PC I use CoolEdit 2000 which I've always found really easy to use. I mainly use it for coverting my old cassettes and LPs to CDs which it does very well (I have the noise reduction plugin) A later version called CoolEdit Pro was bought by Adobe and became ..... Adobe Audition. This has all of the original CoolEdit plugins and is multi track instead of just stereo.
I've tried to use Audacity several times but I've never got on with it myself.
So I'd probably recommend Audition or the older CoolEdit if you can get hold of it.
On the mac I use Logic Pro but I'm not happy with it's wave editor. I'm still looking for a descent (cheap) wave editor for the mac Logic's great for EQing though. If you can find a cheap version of Logic for PC I'd recommend that too.

Good luck

I use Logic Pro 7 as the heart of my sound editing system. It is an outstanding (but expensive!) program for mixing, filtering, equalizing, but as you say, is not designed as a waveform editor. For that I use Amadeus ($30 from http://www.hairersoft.com/) or Peak (http://www.bias-inc.com/). I think Peak is definitely the best, but again it is expensive. I've been using a demo version of Peak 4.1 for almost two years and have "kept it going" by tweaking the date and time settings on my computer (I use a dedicated G5 for all of this). Peak is also great for using the Waves plugins for noise reduction, declicking etc (http://www.waves.com/). I think these are by far the best available for the Mac, and again, many of their products are available as free demos.
