The GUI (graphical user interface) shows menus located on the top of the window and also almost all menus are also available on the left hand side of the GUI which are vertically arranged.
From the Figure 1. The main option under this menu is ‘New‘. Of course, if you hit the ‘New‘ button, a new window will appear as shown in the figure below. (Figure 2.) You can choose your desired sampling rate from 6,000 to 96,000Hz. You can also change the channels settings either Stereo or Mono and that depends on your purpose.
Figure 2. New Sample.
There are two (2) ways to open a file. First, you can directly hit the ‘Open‘ button or second, click on the the little ‘down arrow‘ next the ‘open’ button and that will give you the following options.
A. Open as… (Ctrl+F2) B. Open append…(Ctrl+F3) C. Reload current file (Ctrl+R)
The figure below shows the supported file format that can be loaded into the application (Figure 3).
Figure 3. Supported file formats.
The shortcut key in saving a file is just like any the ones in most applications, just press (Ctrl+S). That will save whatever file you are working on.
Hitting ‘Save as…‘ allows you to save or port the file into another format. See Figure 4.
Figure 4. File formats when you choose to ‘Save as…‘ file into another format.
You can extend some other options that you would like to set by hitting ‘Config’ button next to the file formats drop down menu. And it will display Figure 5.

From the figure above, the user can use presets and just drag the ‘bar’ to define the size and quality of the output file. Moreover, if you rather choose to specify your own settings, just tick the radio button next to ‘Specify Settings:‘ and hit configure to display Figure 6.
Figure 6. Advanced options window to specify settings.
Figure 6, is very straight forward. It’s just drop down menus and horizontal bars that you have to drag to define a setting.
‘Save selection as…‘ will only activate if the user selects a part of an audio file, and save the selected part as a new audio file.

This function can help users to back up to last step. Honestly, I was not able to figure out how many undos it can go backwards. But as far as I could remember, I tried around 19 undos and it was able to make it.
This option is use to restore the last action on the waveform.
