WaveShop: a bit-perfect audio editor that doesn't modify samples needlessly

WaveShop is an audio editor for Windows XP/Vista/7. Unlike many similar apps, WaveShop is bit-perfect, meaning samples aren't altered unless they need to be. Editing a portion of an audio file only affects that portion; the rest of the file is untouched. Blocks of audio can be cut and pasted without changing their contents at all. This is especially useful for patching a finished master without corrupting its dither. Waveshop's features include peak and RMS analysis, clip detection, normalizing, amplifying, fading, speaker assignment, audio generation, unlimited undo, and more. WaveShop is also very fast because all processing is done in memory.

A beta version of WaveShop is currently available for download. 64-bit Windows users are strongly encouraged to install the 64-bit version of WaveShop, because it can load bigger files and/or more files at once without running out of memory.

If you would like to contribute, e.g. by coding, testing, documenting or translating, please contact me. Pending features include: user guide / help file, resampling (via libresamplerate), conversion to floating point, file formats other than WAV (via libsndfile), splitting audio into clips, spectral analysis, channel mixdown, and cue markers.
