Free Pro Tools (and other DAWs) WAV file checking utilitysoftware

WAV Checker is a (very basic looking!) utility that scans WAV files and verifies their structure to check for corruption. Sort of says it all really! If it flags a file that that doesn’t necessarily mean that it won’t play fine. If you have what you suspect is a ‘false positive' send me a copy of the file and I'll investigate. If it crashes, tell me what you were doing and I’ll do my best…
