Frequently Asked Questions


How does Wavecraft create sounds

Wavecraft creates sound by combining data of sine waves. You can make any sound with sinewaves. Your computer translates them to vibration of your speakers.


Is Wavecraft also available as VST plugin?

No. I made at attempt to use VST.NET, but got stuck on converting the graphs library. If you want to have a go, the project is still in the source tree..


Why is Wavecraft only available for Windows?

Wavecraft currently relies heavily on Winforms. To make it available for MacOS or Linux would cost considerable effort at the moment.
