(N.B. Some of these are already on the "to do" list, some have already been suggested by other peopleÖ)

1. Support for More Formats

(Already suggested by Smurf43 and others; already on the "to do" list)

Yes please. Especially: OGG Vorbis, .flac, aiffÖbring it on, basically: the more the better! And speaking of filesÖ

2. File Browser with Preview

(Already suggested by sync)

A preview browser that allows you to audition files before you open them would be great. An "autoplay" function would be useful here so you could audition all the audiofiles in a folder by just scrolling through them with the up and down arrow keys.

3. More Keyboard Shortcuts

(Already suggested by wzn, DigeniNikos and R.A.W. amongst others).

Plus, the ability to change/define keyboard shortcuts (maybe in the .ini configuration file?). This would be extremely helpful; it would also make it possible to use AutoHotKey with Wavosaur.

4. Alternative Mousewheel Mode

Iíve been thinking about how you move around the audiofile. I really like using the RMB to drag the file around...but Iím used to having the context menu and Iím lost when itís not there. So I got thinking about the mousewheel...

I like the way you can zoom in and out with the mousewheel - itís what Iím used to from Reaper - but I think an alternative mode might be useful, too. It would be great if you could use the mousewheel to move through the audiofile i.e. to ffwd/reverse (if the file is playing), or to scroll the position pointer forwards and backwards (if the file is stopped).

Ideally you could use a key to switch between the two mouse-modes: mousewheel only = "scroll mode"; mousewheel-plus-CTRL-key = zoom in/out. Iíve no idea if this is possible or not, but it would be really cool!

5. Position Bar

If youíre working on a small section of a long file itís easy to lose track of where you are in the file as a whole. You could have a small display Ė like a thin bar Ė running across the top of the screen between the toolbars and the main display that shows: 1) the waveform of the whole file 2) where the position pointer is in the file 3) where the part of the file showing in the main display is in the whole file 4) where the currently selected part of the file is in the whole file.

6. More Marker Options

Labelling markers (e.g. "Verse 1") would be nice (already suggested by Skaven252). Being able to colour-code them would be cool, too.

7. Tempo Calculator

This would be REALLY useful for working with loops; I donít know why so few editors have it. What I mean is: you select part of the audiofile, tell Wavosaur how many beats are in that part, and Wavosaur automatically calculates the tempo in bpm.

8. More Batch Processes

e.g. "fade to Ėinf dB in the last 20ms", which would be very useful for dealing with large numbers of poorly-edited samples.

As you can see, I don't want much :)

Thankyouandgoodnight...

We note all this good suggestions!

I agree with fades in/out in batch process.

You can activate the context menu on right mouse click: menu Options->Editor configuration and check "popup menu on right click", when doing that the "drag out" is on the middle-button instead of the right.

Good suggestion about the drag with mouswheel.

Yeah, that would be very helpful.

...but 5 mins later I miss RMB "drag out", so I end up changing back and forth between the two modes!
(Hmmmm...maybe I should buy a 3-button mouse... Wink )

Thank you (I got the idea from VLC media player).
