Wave Corrector Tutorials
Note, if you are a new user of Wave Corrector, then please read the beginner's guide, Getting Started with Wave Corrector, before proceeding with these tutorials.
The tutorials describe the use of Wave Corrector to produce digital files from your old analogue recordings (Vinyl and Tape/Cassette). They are designed to guide you through the most useful of Wave Corrector's features. The tutorials are based on the features in the Professional Edition of Wave Corrector. However, users of the Standard Edition will also derive benefit from the tutorials as many of the features are common to both editions.
The last three of the tutorials require you to to download some short demonstration audio files. The files will enable you to practice the techniques described. Links to the files are shown below. The files have been saved in Monkeys Audio .ape format. This is a compressed format that will enable the files to download quicker than if they were uncompressed wave files. To save each file, right click on its link and select 'Save Target As...'
Although the tutorials are entitled Vinyl to CD, Tape to CD, etc., many of the techniques described are applicable to more than one type of source recording. You are therefore advised to read through all the tutorials even if your projects are restricted to a single type of recording medium.
