This is a review for the DAK Wave * MP3 Editor Pro, v. 6.1b
I bought the full system (mixer, turntable and Editor) and like it very much, with three exceptions. It's easy to use and does its job well normally. I'm using it nearly daily to convert a large LP library to wave files, with good results thus far except as noted below.
I run Windows 7 and DAK 6.1b.
(1) On my system pressing the "play in loop" button after either reading or writing a wave file (*.wav) DELETES ALL music files in the directory you have accessed. Does not delete any non-music files in that dir, only music files. It's easy to hit accidentally and loose all your work. BEWARE! Happened to me twice :-( before I tracked down the cause. Now I never have more than one expendable file in the working directory, and never allow DAK into any other directory.
(2) It has hung on me several times when trying to save a recording, resulting in loss of that recording work (had to force shutdown the app with windows task manager. ) Cause unknown.
(3) Email Customer Support is unwilling or unable to address these problems and has offered only irrelevant questions and solutions that don't work, before stopping responding to emails altogether.
It's not a bad system if you are aware of and don't mind working around these bugs.
