Inserting New Click Corrections

Although Wave Corrector automatically generates corrections, it will occasionally be necessary to manually add corrections because of imperfections in the click detect algorithms. 

If a click is still audible after your wave file has been scanned and corrected, it can often be found by highlighting a block around the area where you can hear the click; and then selecting the Block Re-scan or Super-scan option using a more sensitive click detect threshold.

If this method fails however, you can manually add a correction using the Adjust/Insert command. 

The following step by step procedure explains how this is done.
1.  Centre the main window display as nearly as possible over the click you want to correct. (Note that you re-centre the display by double clicking over the new centre position you require.)
2. Expand the horizontal scale, re-centring if necessary until the rogue click is identified by its waveform shape. Use the 'Audition' command and its synchronised moving cursor to help you locate the click precisely.
3. When you think you have identified it, select the 'Adjust/Insert' command. The program enters adjust mode. 
4. Now fine-tune the width of the correction to match the characteristics of the click. If necessary, you can also nudge the position of the correction to the left or right with the cursor left/right keys. Use the 'Audition' command to evaluate the effectiveness of your adjustments. 
5. When you are satisfied with the result, click 'Apply' and your new correction will be inserted into the correction list. 
6. If your identification of the click was mistaken, simply click 'Abort' to return the normal waveform screen.
