Editing your own music on a PC can be hugely rewarding, but
if you’ve used computer software to edit your sounds
before, you’ll know that the sheer number of features
and interfaces can be a little overwhelming at first. Fortunately,
there is software available that enables you to edit your
sounds more easily – Dexster.
Dexster has as easy-to-use interface that contains enough
features to keep you satiafied. You can use it to simply convert
your WAV files to MP3 files, or you can do more, tinkering
with frequencies and adding effects. You can also record sounds
using Dexster, and then save these as WAV or MP3 files too.
The quality of sounds can be improved using an array of effects
ans filters, and you can fade in and out, normalise equalise,
and trim the sounds.
If you are new to sound manipulation, just go to the Help
files that are packages with the product; you’ll find
explanations of what all the different effects do. If you
need more assistance, you can access tutorials on Dexster
from the SoftDiv Software website – www.softdivshareware.com
Dexster is a great accompaniment to music production, enabling
you to edit your sounds visually with ease. IT also gives
a visual representation of a sound, which means that you can
select different sections of a sound and even zoom in and
out, working with precise sections of sound waves. Try out
the program’s features using any sounds you may have
saved on your PC. Alternatively hook up a microphone or another
external device to your sound card, then record sounds and
music into Dexster to edit, save and use with other applications.
