Time zoom in/out


To zoom in and out horizontally by small increments, click the Time zoom in/out buttons.


Indicates the number of samples of data represented by each point on the screen horizontally. This determines the length of time shown in the waveform display, With a small resolution value ( 1:1, 1:2, 1:4, ... ), a shorter length of time is displayed.

Time zoom ratio

The current zoom ratio appears in the lower-right corner of the window.

The zoom ratio determines the number of samples represented by each horizontal pixel on the screen. The zoom ratio is a value of A: B, where A is the number of horizontal pixels and B is the number of samples.


If the zoom ratio 1:1, each pixel on the screen represents one sample.

If the zoom ratio 1:1024, 1024 samples are represented by each pixel on the screen.


For high precise editing, you may want to zoom in more tightly than a 1:1 ratio. Wave Editor allows up to 4:1 ratio, where 4pixels on the screen represent one sample.

Level zoom in/out


Shows the amplitude of the waveform. To zoom in and out vertically by small increments, click the Level zoom in/out buttons.

As a result, you can adjust the height of the waveform view size.
