What are Wave (WAV) files?

What are Wave (WAV) files?

They are basically files on your computer that have gotten moisture in them. The theory being that if you collect enough of this moisture, you’ll get tiny “waves” on your hard drive as a result.

JUST KIDDING – I couldn’t resist. Sorry.

Wave files (they have a .WAV extension) are sound files. They can be anything from a little beep to a full blown song. They are also the default type of sound file for Windows. Today’s Cool Site has lots of these to play with.
