Many practical audio editors can help you out with editing WAV files, but to name the most powerful yet free one, I highly recommend WonderFox Free HD Video Converter Factory. It is an efficient WAV audio editor that can trim, split, compress, and merge the audio files, and even edit the audio metadata. It allows you to adjust the audio parameters like audio bitrate, sample rate, channels, and volume. You can also use it to change the audio format like WAV to MP3, AAC, FLAC, and vice versa.
Launch the audio editor after installing it on your PC. Tap on the Converter button and then hit the + Add Files button to add your WAV files. You can also click the center + button to add files or simply drag and drop them into the workplace.
After loading the WAV files, you can edit them with the built-in audio trimmer, merger, etc. according to your needs. Here I will demonstrate how to cut/merge WAV audio files and other editing features.
----1. Cut the WAV Files
Click the scissors icon on the toolbar to open the Trim window. Move the sliders on the timeline to select the parts you want. Then press the Trim button to create an audio clip. You can also type in the start and end times to get an accurate video clip. Repeat the process, you can get multiple audio clips. Finally, click OK to save the trimmed audio clip(s).
----2. Merge the WAV files
If you want to merge multiple WAV files into one file, you can click the Merge button above the audio file to bring up the Merge window. Here you can select the files and click the middle Merge button to create one pack. Finally, press the bottom Merge button to save the merged audio pack(s).
----3. Other Editing Features
You can also click the last audio editing tool on the toolbar to edit WAV metadata. Here you can modify the Output File Name, Artist, Genre, and description. Besides, you can also press the Parameter settings button under the format image to adjust the audio parameters. Navigate to the Audio settings, you can modify the audio channels to convert a mono track to stereo, decrease the audio bitrate to compress WAV files or increase it to get higher output quality, and turn up or down the audio volume.
Optional: You can click the format image above the Parameter settings to unfold the output format list. Navigate to the Audio category and choose one format you want.
