USING SOUNDSHAPER WITH AN AUDIO EDITOR

Although Soundshaper has no built-in editor, it integrates easily with most audio editors. You can either:

 FROM SOUNDSHAPER TO EDITOR AND BACK

 FROM EDITOR TO SOUNDSHAPER AND BACK

IN THE EDITOR:

  • Highlight the portion you want to process.
  • Export the selection to a file (see below). Leave the selected portion highlighted.

Exporting the selection:

Audacity File > Export Selection
Wavosaur File > Export Selection
Nero Edit > Copy to File
Wavelab File > Save special > Export Selection
Wavepad Edit > Save selected region
Waveflow File > Export Selection

IN SOUNDSHAPER:

  • Open the file, e.g. by drag and drop.
  • Run the process then save the final cell (should be a soundfile) to a file (click on Save icon).

BACK IN THE EDITOR:

  • Open the processed file, select the whole contents (usually CTRL+A) and copy to clipboard (CTRL+C).
  • Click on the original file's window (not on the sound-display) and delete the originally selected portion (usually DELETE key or CTRL+DELETE).
  • Paste in the processed contents from the clipboard (CTRL+V).

If you don't like the result:

  • CTRL+Z: undo the paste operation.
  • CTRL+Z: undo the deletion (restore the original).
