You can choose to have the resulting split files saved either to disk or directly opened in the editor. If the split operation you are performing will produce more than 10 new files, then you will need to save these to file first - you can't open them directly to the editor window.
When saving to disk, in the Output Location field, choose the folder you would like all the split files to be created in. In the Output Name field enter the file name prefix you would like. The split files will be named using this text with a number appended on the end.
In the Output Format drop down box select the file format you would like to save in.
Use this option to split the file by detecting silence below a specified threshold level for a specified duration. Anything below the threshold level corresponds to what WavePad considers to be "silence". If the audio level stays underneath this threshold for the duration specified in the duration field, then WavePad will create a split at this point.
Use this option if you have a file with bookmarks denoting locations at which you would like to create new files. This will split the file at each bookmark, creating a new file for each region between the bookmarks.
Use this option to split the original file into equals parts either by entering the number of parts or the duration of each interval.
Split the original file into specified lengths by checking the Duration radio button and entering the hours, minutes, seconds and milliseconds for each interval (the last interval will be shorter or equal in length).
Specify how many files you would like to split the original file into by checking the Quantity radio button and entering the number of splits.
Use this option to split the original file either by entering a rough number of output files, or a rought length for the split intervals.
WavePad will try to find the best split points based on the length and the silences in your audio file, and will not strictly split the file into equal parts.
Split the original file into parts of roughly the specified length by checking the Rough interval radio button and entering the hours, minutes, seconds, and milliseconds for the approximate interval length.
Specify roughly how many files you would like to split the original file into by checking the Rough quantity radio button and entering the approximate number of outputs.
