Use the audio conversion capability offered by FFmpeg, using this intuitive application which translates the codec’s functions to graphic elements
WavEncoder is a reliable program which allows you to use the multimedia conversion capabilities offered by FFmpeg, in a simple, graphic interface. The program is dedicated to converting audio files to WAV format, as well as modify some of their quality parameters, before saving them.
FFmpeg functions’ graphic translation
While FFmpeg offers a wide range of powerful tools for manipulating multimedia files, it does not include a graphic interface. This feature restricts the number of users down to those with advanced knowledge of video/audio/graphic editing, as well as familiarity with command line.
WavEncoder is designed to “borrow” FFmpeg’s audio conversion functions and to offer you a friendly environment in which to control them. The program allows you to convert multiple audio format files to .WAV, as well as modify certain quality parameters.
These advanced options require suitable knowledge of audio editing, however, upon opening, the fields are filled with default values. These values are suitable for most conversion tasks.
Graphic interface combined with command lines arguments
WavEncoder features a command line control area, which allows you to define extra arguments, before processing the input file. The software can only convert one file at a time and allows you to choose the desired value for the sample rate, up to 5644800 Hz, the number of channels and the PCM parameter.
You may maintain the file’s metadata or purge it, choose mapping points for each channel and trim the audio duration. Once you have set the desired parameters, you need to click the “Generate commandline” button, which prompts the proper arguments. You may easily add or modify the current lines.
Quick audio converter
By default, WavEncoder saves the processed file in the source folder, adding the .WAV extension to the already existing name. The input file, however, is not replaced, instead the .WAV is saved as a stand alone item. The destination folder and output file name may be changed using the command line area.
