Wave Editor introduces the concept of "layered audio" - layer portions of audio (in any format), Audio Units and fades on top of each other, edit to your heart's content, then flatten your file to get a result quickly. Wave Editor includes an advanced Inspector, statistical analyzer, audio processing, three advanced meters, full support for Audio Units, bezier curve-based fades, support for MP3 and AAC, and much more.
