Optostudio WFSp

Optostudio has released WFSp, a WAV File Stripper which removes loop and cue data from wav files.

Its mostly for use with wav files that been rendered from audio hosts and editors that automatically embed loop points, cue and other data into the file.

Depending on the target software/hardware, this can make the file playback abnormally often locking the timeline to the loop point. In some cases editing and deleting the data then re-saving the file does not get rid of this non audio data. When the file is re-opened, all the non audio data is still there.

The only option would be to re-record the audio file and then save it. That only works if you have the right 3rd party solution (hardware/software loopback drivers).

WFSp gives the wav file new life by removing the constraining data so it can be used by any host, hardware, soft/hard sampler, internal/external player, media device etc.

WFSp is available as a free download for Windows PC. A no nags version is available as donationware. 25% of donations go to Haiti Relief.
