Bug Report: v6.43 Garbage error message after invalid "Set Selection" input

Operating system: Windows 10 Pro 64-bit I was trying to select the last 20 seconds of a wave via the "Set Selection" prompt, and I accidentally reversed the start and end values (01:17:46.19508 and 01:18:06.19508). After a couple of seconds the error prompt came up displaying random Chinese text. (F...

Re: Error: "Install missing presets?" [GoldWave 6.30]

I just rebuilt my computer and installed everything new. Upon importing my backed up settings from GoldWave v6.36 into v6.41 I got this error. I then exported the current settings and did a file comparison. The only difference I could see was that the new backup had additional settings (for new feat...

Re: recording a dvd audio track

I used to use VLC to rip DVD audio, but it always took me a lot of fiddling to figure out the right title and right audio track.

Now I use Nero Recode. (I have the old 2014 version. According to angry customer reviews, newer version have dropped some if not most Bluray features, FYI.)

Re: 6.21 Please fix the waveform display artifacts...

Drawing to screen is a surprisingly cycle-expensive process. I wrote a program that scans a directory looking for duplicate files. It does a byte-for-byte file comparison, and as soon as a non-matching byte is found it skips to the next file, but a matching file will be compared in its entirety . Th...

Re: Permission to save

When you go to launch GoldWave, right-click the shortcut and click "Run as Administrator." If you still get permission errors, try reinstalling GoldWave and run the installer "as administrator" (and then run GoldWave "as administrator"). Also check to make sure the save destination doesn't have the ...

Re: Why does not it support other world languages?

I've worked on the development side of some projects that offered multi-language support. On top of all the reasons already listed why multi-language support is problematic, it's also not a simple as "Display phrase X in language Y"; it can get quite complicated when dynamic statements have to be di...

Re: A fade out for audio in Goldwave- need a simplification

If I understand correctly, you're having trouble using the mouse to select the exact region you want to fade out, and would like to be able to input via keyboard the numeric boundaries of the region you would like to select. There is a way to do so: Click the Edit menu Click "Selection" Click "Set.....

Bug report: File merger no longer remembers open location

I just upgraded to GoldWave v6.31 (Windows 7 64-bit), and the file merger no longer remembers the last location it opened for selecting files to merge. It seems to now use the location set under Options -> Storage Options -> Open sound folder. If I change the option to "Remember folder used last ses...
