Frequently Asked Questions

We've got answers.

Is WavTool trying to replace music producers with AI?

No. Fully-AI-generated music may have some use in the world, but we don't think it's very interesting.

We're here because we love the creative process of music production, and we want to enhance and elevate that process to the fullest extent possible. We take great care to ensure that AI features are delivered in a safe and responsible way, always with a focus on inspiring and accelerating human art, with maximum control in the hands of the human creator.

We fundamentally believe that the future of music is human, and our mission is to help more creative humans make great original music. If you have ideas, concerns, or feedback on the way we're doing this, we want to hear from you. Please contact us at hello@wavtool.com

What is WavTool?
WavTool is a web-based Digital Audio Workstation (DAW) that runs in the browser.
Who made this?
WavTool is built by a small team of five passionate music/software nerds, located in Japan, Singapore, and Canada.
Why browser-based?

Our mission is to make music production more accessible to musicians of all levels, and part of this means facilitating creative work without the hindrance of technical hurdles. To us, a browser-based platform aligns perfectly with this goal.

If you want to try out a cool feature, or check out a link to your friend's project, it takes just 30 seconds. No need to download, install, or update anything.

How is my content stored and backed up?

WavTool caches project data and audio locally in your browser until you trigger a cloud save by setting a name for your project, or clicking File → Save.

Local caching ensures that unsaved data is not lost if the browser tab is closed or refreshed before saving.

Once saved, your project is backed up in our secure cloud storage. Our account security ensures that data in your project cannot be seen by other users unless you explicitly share the project using the Remix function.

Can I use WavTool on any device?
We strongly recommend using WavTool on a computer with a mouse and keyboard.
What types of audio files can be imported into WavTool?
Nearly all audio file formats (mp3, wav, flac and more) can be imported into WavTool. Just drag and drop them onto the timeline and they'll be ready to go.
Does WavTool include virtual instruments or sample libraries?

Yes. To learn more, check out this video, which goes into detail on WavTool's Library panel.

Can I export my projects from WavTool to other DAW software?

You can export MP3, Wav, and MIDI files from WavTool. An open-source project that allows full-project conversion from WavTool to other formats can be found here.

Is there a free trial available for WavTool?

Yes. In addition to our completely free "Basic" tier, we offer a two-week free trial of our Pro tier, which grants access to the full functionality WavTool can provide.

Does WavTool own any of the music that I make with it?
