Wave Repair is a shareware editor specifically designed for the restoration of WAV files that were recorded from magesy download vinyl records. It can also be used to process recordings made from magesy download tapes, but its restoration features are intended mainly for records. The name is perhaps a little unfortunate. You might think that Wave Repair is a program for fixing broken WAV files (eg. with invalid headers), which it isn’t. In hindsight, I should have chosen a different name, but I’m stuck with it now.
