New Waveform Editor Features Innovative Audio Layering Feature

SAINT PAUL, Minnesota – August 22, 2005 – Audiofile Engineering today
introduced Wave Editor, its document-based digital audio waveform editor
with several new features that make it the most innovative application of
its kind on the market. Wave Editor is priced at $250.

Wave Editor is the essential audio editor for Mac OS X. Designed in Cocoa
from the ground up, Wave Editor proudly takes advantage of CoreAudio,
Quartz Extreme, and other core features within Mac OS X. Wave Editor takes
over where Peak and Spark left off, incorporating the standard audio
editing features you’re used to while bringing you up-to-date with the
latest advances in interface design, speed and stability.

“We’ve built what we think is the best audio document editor on Mac OS X,”
said Ev, programmer of Wave Editor. “Taking what we learned from Sample
Manager, we have filled what we found was a huge hole in the Mac OS X audio
market. We plan to continue to improve upon Wave Editor’s solid yet
expandable foundation until it is unparalleled in the audio industry.”

Cutting Edge Features

Wave Editor introduces the concept of “layered audio”. It allows audio
professionals to layer audio of any rate, bit depth, and number of
channels, add Audio Units and fades on top of each other, edit them, then
flatten the resulting file, a process that takes much longer with legacy

Bezier-Based Fades

Wave Editor’s application of fades is new to audio editors: fades as
“overlays” on top of the audio that can be adjusted in real-time before
they are applied. And, for the first time in any audio editor, you can use
quadratic or cubic bezier curves to shape the fades to obtain the smoothest
natural effect.

Wave Editor also includes an advanced inspector, statistical analyzer,
standard audio processing features, three advanced meters, full support for
Audio Units, support for MP3 and AAC, and much more.

The Future

Audiofile Engineering today has also announced the imminent release of
Spectre, a real-time audio multi-analyzer. Spectre is the only audio
analyzer for Mac OS X written in Cocoa and fully utilizes core features
within Mac OS X, including Quartz Extreme. More information about Spectre
is forthcoming.

Pricing & Availability

Wave Editor is available immediately through Audiofile Engineering’s online
store ( for a retail price of $250
(US). A retail price for Spectre has yet to be determined. Wave Editor and
Spectre require Mac OS X Tiger (10.4).
