I registered wave corrector a few weeks ago, and it has surpassed my expectations. I have found the program logical to use, and extremely effective at improving the quality of my recordings. I particularly appreciate the manual which I was able to download from your site. (Duncan Underhay, United Kingdom)

I want you folks to know that I think you software product is fantastic! I tried out many such programs via shareware and found yours to offer the most for the money. (Rick Siller, USA)

First I'd like to thank you for creating Wave Corrector. It's the best product I've used for taking clicks out of vinyl?. Overall, I am delighted to be able to use Wave Corrector. After using other products to try and accomplish the same goals, I find yours to be faster, less expensive, and more functional all at the same time. Thanks again for writing it. (John Banister, USA)

See our Tutorials for guidance on connecting your record or cassette player to your PC.

De-Click Vinyl Records

Wave Corrector employs sophisticated noise reduction algorithms to remove many kinds of surface noise including  repeating clicks, ticks and plops.  The click eliminator provides accurate audio restoration by reconstructing the original audio wave from measurements of the phase and frequency content. In the Professional Edition, individual click corrections can be manually adjusted to optimise the corrected wave.

De-Hiss

A hiss removal option removes background hiss from  music cassettes and reel to reel tapes.

Manual and Timed Recordings

Direct recording from within the program allows the material to be placed on the hard disc where all the other program options are available. The timer option allows you, for example, to make unattended recordings of radio broadcasts.

Track Editor

This automatically divides the recording into numbered tracks and allows editing of track boundaries.

Fade in/out

This provides for automatic or manual fades at track boundaries. The fade times can be varied to optimise the start and end of tracks.


Professional Edition - Additional features

The following features are included in the Professional Edition of Wave Corrector:

Correction Editor

Audition and edit individual vinyl clicks.

Audio Filters

A range of filters are available to improve sound quality. These include a rumble filter to remove very low frequencies generated by some turntables and treble lift and cut to improve the overall sound balance.

Cut and Splice

This powerful technique allows unwanted noises (eg a cough by a member of the audience) to be silently removed.

Graphic Equaliser.  

Use to adjust the frequency response or to remove interfering tones, etc.

Normalise and Channel Balance

Recordings can be automatically adjusted for optimum level and balance at any point in the program.



Why Choose Wave Corrector?

Wave Corrector is designed to the meet the needs of both the home music lover as well as the professional archivist. Its overriding purpose is to maintain the maximum possible fidelity to the original recording. By means of powerful interpolation and concealment algorithms, Wave Corrector generates click corrections which blend harmoniously with the underlying waveform.. Because of its high accuracy, many thousands of large and small amplitude clicks can be concealed without processing artefacts becoming intrusive to the listener.

Unlike competitor products, Wave Corrector (Professional Edition) permits individual click corrections to be modified or removed and new corrections can be manually inserted. These features give the user much greater control over the correction process and allow for great flexibility when restoring 'difficult' material.
 

The animation on the right shows how Wave Corrector dynamically corrects a click to blend with the surrounding wave.

Wave Corrector provides tools to both aurally and visually assess the effects of the correction process.

The user is presented with a graphical display of the corrected and uncorrected waveforms overlaid on each to allow easy comparison. In the illustration, the uncorrected wave is blue, and the corrected is red. 

The waveform can be auditioned before and after correction, and also during user modifications.

In these ways, the efficacy of each correction can be assessed and adjusted if necessary.
