Awave Studio is a multi-purpose audio tool that reads a veritable host of audio carrying file formats from different platforms, synthesizers, trackers, et c.
It can be used in a variety of ways — as a file format converter, as an audio editor, or as a synthesizer instrument editor.

File formats galore:

Awave Studio can read almost any imaginable audio file format - in total around 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!

Full support for up to 32-bit floating point sample data format guarantees that the highest audio quality is maintained during all conversion and audio processing operations.


The program does so many different things — this list is far from complete…

Ok, so what doesn't it do?

It does not convert from WAV to MIDI. It can only do very basic MIDI editing (so look elsewhere for a sequencer). It won't handle more than 2 audio channels (so no 7.1 audio). It needs to fit all sound data into memory (but do check out Awave Audio  if you need a tool for converting huge multi-channel recordings).

If you are unsure — 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.

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.
