There seems to be a buffer limit on files. I tried to load a 1G 22k Hz WAV file and only about 45 minutes of 3.75 hours were loaded.

Hello FredThompson, and welcome

this is not really a fixed limitation, but for the moment Wavosaur is not optimized for large files.

Are there any plans to remove this limit as it makes the program almost useless to me and everything else about it seemed so good. If it wasn't for the filesize limit I would say it's the best free wave editor out there, but as it is I just can't use it at all.

agree with the above poster 100%. excellent program, but large file support is definitely a must-have! could you let us know if loading larger files is possible at all, like with a command line switch (whether optimized or not)? if not, could you let us know what exactly the filesize limitation implemented is? thanks!

I tried loading a 1GB file with the latest build and only 57MB showed up in memory (as registered in windows task manager).
Previously it would stall on higher levels of ram (I have 2GB).
Cheers,
Matt

Agreed, this is the number One bug with Wavosaur - crashes on loading large files or only loads a certain amount of them.
If it wasn't for that, it would suit all my needs!

The file was recorded on a Zoom H2 at 48kHz, 24bit and is 1.37gb:
Is there any workaround?
-Is there a WAV file splitter (& knit back togetherer) around?
-If the resolution were reduced to 44/16 would that help?
-Any other suggestions?
-And as a last resort, is there another free editor you'd recommend?

My system:
Dell 630 laptop, Windows 7 Pro, T7500 cpu, 3gb RAM, 500gb 7200rpm HD.

Hopefully,
David

I attempted to load a long .WAV file into Wavasour. The original is about 180 minutesx. I intended to cut out the final portion past about 60 minutes, but the system would only load approximately 1.5 minutes of audio. I'm running XP Pro on an old box with 523 memory.

Audacity was able to load and process the entire file.

In my world of jazz, and especially classical music, longish uninterrupted pieces have been standard for a few hundred years. What's the prognosis of future Wavasours to work with large files?

Programmer-designers, please give yourselves a pat on the back for a friendly interface. This is my first post here. Thanks.

I'm using a Zoom H2 to do the recordings. I am also intending to use H2-zoo to generate 5.1 surround sound. If I follow the tutorial (for H2-zoo) I use WaveWizard to join the Zoom output files to a single 4 track file and then let Hs-zoo process them.

What I am finding is:
If I combine files, Wavosaur will read in a 10 min 4-track but not a 20 min 4-track

It will read in a 20 min 2 track, I cannot add another 2 tracks (e.g., another stereo channel).

This is a problem to me since I wanted to use it on a recording that is 2 hour and 45 minutes long. and so I'd need to break it up about 20 files to fit into the limitations of Wavosaur. And I'd also have to do this to the front and rear channels of the H2 recording in such a fashion I retain the timing of the samples so that the files can be later combined.

So for my system (Pentium 4 with 3 GB RAM) the limitation seems to be roughly 40 minutes of sound - all tracks combined.
