Saving your Work

Wave Corrector supports various file types for saving your work. 

If you want to break off from an editing session and return to it at a later time, you can save a session file. Session files contain a list of click corrections and track boundaries values together with filter and volume settings. The session file enables Wave Corrector to restore the editing session when required. Use the File - Save Session command to create a session file. Note, session files do not include any audio data. When you restore a session,  the audio data is obtained form the original uncorrected audio file. Therefore never delete the original uncorrected audio file until all editing work is complete.

When editing is complete, you can save your work in one of three different built-in audio formats. You can also use an external encoding program to save to a file type not directly supported by Wave Corrector, eg MP3.  See File Types for help with deciding which file type to use. See also Using an External Encoder

If you are embarking on a complicated editing session, you can select File - Auto-Save command. This causes a session file to be saved once every five minutes. Also, with auto-save in operation, a session file will automatically be saved whenever you save an audio file (see below).

If you have finished making adjustments to click corrections, track boundaries etc., then you should save your results in one of the audio formats described above. Choose a format that can be read by your CDr burning software or by the other audio applications that you use.

Use the File - Save command if you want to continue editing after the save, or use the File - Save & Close command  to automatically close the input file after the save operation is complete.

You will be prompted to specify how to name the output files and where you to store them. If you have assigned tags to your individual tracks (title, artist, genre etc) then you can generate file names based on these tags. Alternatively, you can use the default naming convention which is to take the original file name and add the suffix 'cor' followed by a pair of numerals equal to the track number.  See File Naming for guidance on the file naming features of Wave Corrector.

If any of the corrected file names already exist on your computer, you will be prompted whether to overwrite them.
