Waves – Latest Updates

Now anyone can use the world’s best earthquake waveform viewer for free. Waves is able to read MiniSEED, PC-SUDS, and many other data formats, and is available for Windows, Mac and Linux.

Waves 1.3 introduces one major new feature, improves a bunch of existing features, adds support for even more data formats, and includes performance improvements while squashing a few bugs. The newest feature is the ability to select and zoom in the FFT window to filter your data, either through selection or exclusion by notching out frequency bands. See the Waves user manual for all the details.

Simply click on the links below to download the version for your operating system. Waves is a Java application and requires that the Java Runtime Environment (JRE) is installed on your computer, which is available as a free download. Mac users should also install the Java SDK.

The free version of Waves is supported by a pop-up advertisement on startup which can be removed by purchasing a product key for A$110 per computer. Contact us if you would like to purchase one or more product keys. A product key is available at no cost if you have purchased a Gecko seismograph or accelerograph – simply contact us with your Gecko serial number (find it by going to Menu -> Inspect-> Firmware Info). Limited to one code per Gecko.
