Top Sound Productions announced the availability of a utility
designed to make using the Boss BR-1600CD easier to use in environments involving
PC software-based editing, mixing and mastering of recorded audio.
WAV-MAKER-1600, a software utility designed to work on Windows platforms in
concert with a BR-1600CD unit attached to the PC, was created to help minimize
user interaction during the WAV conversion process, and quickly convert audio
projects created on the BR-1600CD to a useable format that can be imported
into today's PC-based audio production software.
“We designed this utility primarily to help ourselves save time and minimize
our tasks during the conversion,” says Gene Cookmeyer, owner of Top Sound Productions. “We
utilize Cakewalk SONAR 3 Producer software for doing mix-downs and mastering.
The Boss BR-1600CD is our mobile recording platform of choice, but we were
disappointed with the limitations for exporting WAV data one mono or stereo
track at a time and the heavy user-interaction required during the process.
This utility helps us convert the audio project folder stored on the BR-1600CD
quickly, where the real work can start by using SONAR to do our audio processing.”
Top Sound Productions made the decision to offer this software utility to
other owners or users of Boss BR-1600CDs, thinking that this utility can help
improve their time-management and workflow as well.

WAV-MAKER-1600 is being offered at an introductory price of $39.99 U.S. and
is available for purchase directly from Top Sound Productions.
