​​​​​​​The WOLFWAVE advanced audio processor, reviewed in last month’s PW, has been upgraded.

The WOLFWAVE advanced audio processor, reviewed in last month’s PW, already has bandpass filtering, noise reduction and age-related hearing correction. In a major upgrade, SOTABEAMS has added an effective Morse decoder that can decode signals from 1 to 100WPM. SOTABEAMS comment that decoding Morse code represents a real challenge to the programmer; it’s just so variable. People send at differing speeds and with vastly differing ‘fists’. The ultimate decoder will always be the human brain but software can do a pretty good job. It took about six weeks of work to achieve a working product.

In another new addition, professional musician Chris Rolinson G7DDN has composed a ‘startup’ sound for WOLFWAVE, based on ‘WW’ in Morse code. Chris’s composition can be heard here:
