File formats galore:

Awave Studio can read almost any imaginable audio file format - in total 300+ formats.

→   See the complete file formats list!

Some synthesizers use disk formats and file systems that are not recognized by Windows. Many of these can still be read by the program by talking directly with the hardware.

→   See the list of special I/O formats!

The highest audio quality is maintained during all conversion and audio processing operations.


The program can do many things — this list is far from complete...

Ok, so what doesn't it do?

It can only do very basic low-level MIDI editing (look elsewhere for a sequencer).
It won't handle more than 2 audio channels (so no surround sound).
It needs to fit all sound data into memory.

If you are unsure if it is for you — then why not download the free 30 day trial version?   Seeing is believing!

You can try almost all functionality — we don't hide any ugly surprises — we have confidence in our product.

List of file formats supported by Awave Studio...

Special I/O formats

The vast majority of formats that is supported can be handled as normal files using Windows. However, a few hardware synthesizers use disk formats and/or file systems that are not compatible with Windows and can not be accessed in a normal manner. The program can directly read the following formats by communicating directly with the hardware and directly interpreting the file system and/or disk formats:

The following formats can not be read directly. However, you can use 3rd party utilities to create "disk images" that it can read:

Then there's of course support for a whole lot of normal file formats too.
