Wavosaur is now available as 32 bit application AND 64 bit application !
The 64 bit version runs natively on 64 bit Windows system, like Windows 7 and Windows 8, this means Wavosaur can adress more RAM. And of course can run 64 bit VST plugins.
In this 188.8.131.52 version we also fix bug with the VST host, that was causing some plugins to stop working, like the Izotope plugins.
The VST compatibility is improved !
Imagine you’ve just made some recordings using a digital recorder, and when importing the files into an audio editor : the volume is too low ! you can barely hear what have been recorded.
And of course, you can’t re-record with a good level.
This happens too if you get files from someone, and the files were badly recorded.
The level is low, let’s volumize it !
How to get back you recording to the right level with Wavosaur
Easy ! just crank up the volume!
Sometimes it’s just easy as that, but depending on your recording, it can be more complex.
We present four methods, and in which case you may use one method or another : Continue reading →
You have just recorded vocals, you did not forget the anti-pop filter BUT
some harsh sounds still remain. sss
How to get rid of those annoying sibilances, harsh sound on “s” “ss” “sh” “ch” “z” ?
=> You can edit by hand if you have time, but it can be very tedioussss !
Or you can use a DE-ESSER, for automatically remove those annoying “s” in your vocal.
We have selected 3 FREE VST plugins you can use in Wavosaur or any audio editor or sequencer, that does the job ! let’s go :
You have music that you want to broadcast, you have set up a web radio, and now you need this “FM radio sound” : loud, clear and powerful.
You can set up a chain of effects to try to achieve this FM radio sound : multiband compressor (s), equalizer, enhancer… Or you can try this “all in one” FREE plugin, intended for FM broadcasting : Continue reading →
Adding a metalic feeling to any voice to make it sound like a robot is easy.
Of course if you want the extra funkyness you can use a vocoder plugin in Wavosaur
But to change your voice into a nice robot (not a bad robot, this will be for a next tutorial), just 2 or 3 clicks are necessary :
For simpler & faster results, you can use amplitude modulation
How to sound like a robot ?
1) launch Wavosaur and load a voice sample
2) go to Menu Tools -> Synthesis -> Simple
Synthesis tool menu
3) now use these values for the parameters :
- Frequency : 75 Hz
- Type : Sinus
- Volume : 0 dB
- Apply : “Apply on all current file” OR “Apply only on selection” if you just want to robotize a selection you made on your file
- Advanced : Multiply with audio file – this is the most important! this is the Amplitude modulation! -
4) click the “OK” button
Now you should have results like this :
extra bonus more plus (gating) :
Of course you can try other values for the frequency, if you select low frequency values (under 20 Hz), you start to have a tremolo effect, or gate effect if you change the waveform to abs square
but the synthesis tool is not well suited for gate effect, for that, there is the gapper effect
go to Menu Effect -> Gapper
Gate me !
Now you can select smoother waveforms for gating your file (and apply fade in/out to prevent click noises)
