(About the author)
     This will take a list of waves (RIFF format most popular by microsoft) and properly merge them with a new header on the output file. I have submitted file mergers in the past and people complained on how it didn't work with wave file types since they have headers that tell it how to be played so this is the reason i wrote this project. If someone out there can merge a couple with different sampling rates or bitspersample and send some feedback on what the end result is then that would be appriciated, i havn't had time to test this out fully, it just works as far as i can tell with the wave riff format. Email me at for any questions that you have since i didn't comment much on this since its a simple method i thought. Good luck tell me what you think and please don't forget to vote if you like it.

The problem is they don't have identical samplerates or BPS's.

Use a the wave program that comes with windows to save it as a different type.

Perfect code. I have seen so many wave joining apps in PSC which have errors. This one works great.
Great work
