Need help getting a wave editor

In the past I bought Nero 7, then later upgraded to Nero 9. I found that the feature I use the most is the wave editor. I don't do much with pictures or video, so I don't want to spend a lot of money on features I won't use. Please tell me the best version with a wave editor that also will have the lowest cost. I have a license key if needed for an upgrade.

  • Are you saying that your v9 doesn't have WaveEditor? It is installed along with all the other applications. It may not be there if you have an Essentials version. I'm assuming that you purchased v9 either as a boxed version or download from Nero. Is that a bad assumption?

    In v2014 and later, WaveEditor is a separate download from nero.com, downloads, Nero Free Tools. You can always use that.

  • Yes. V9 does have a wave editor. I have been using Nero's wave editor since Nero 6, maybe 3 computers ago. I repurchased Nero 7 at some point and when I upgraded to my last computer, a Compaq running Windows 7, after I used my disk to install Nero 7, I downloaded v9. Still have the license key for v9 + another one for Back-it-up & Burn. About a week ago I just bought a Dell running Windows 8.1. When I try to use my disk to install Nero 7, about half way through the install I get an error and I am forced to exit. I tried to copy v7 & v9 from my old computer, but when I double click on any of the applications nothing happens. Maybe Windows 8.1 won't recognize these older versions of Nero. I don't know. But I would like to find out if there is a way I can use what I have, or if I must buy a new version of Nero, which would be the cheapest option if I am mainly concerned with the wave editor for mp3 files.

  • I went to Free Tools & got the Wave Editor. Seems to be working fine. Thanks.

  • v7 is not Win 7 or 8 compatible. v9 is not Win 8 compatible. You could install them in a compatability mode and then run them in a compatibility mode. There's no guarantee everything will work.

    You can't copy programs from one computer to another. You have to use either the installation discs or downloaded installers to install them.

    You can get a deep discount on Nero 2015 Classic or Platinum by going to nero.com, upgrade and inserting your v9 serial number and then picking the flavor you're most interested in. I always recommend Platinum because I find that too many people have buyer's remorse after buying Classic because it doesn't have all the features that they wanted. If all you want is WaveEditor, you got it already.

  • Wave Editor is not listed any more in the free tools, if it is walk me to it
