    Yes, you’ve confirmed the executable is 64bit.

    Did you notice their github page provides howto instruction for compiling your own copy of the application?
    Doing so may be your surest path to achieving successful operation.

    Yes; so compiling it will make it usable even on a 32-bit OS?

    Sorry, I thought they meant operating system in terms of linux, windows or mac..

    I downloaded the zip file and followed the steps till the “git submodule update –init –recursive” part, which gave me “git submodule update –init –recursive
    fatal: Not a git repository (or any of the parent directories): .git”

    The readme file in the zip file also requires this command, so I’m not sure what I’m doing wrong. ?

    You maybe should begin with the command

    sudo git clone https://github.com/AndrewBelt/WaveEdit.git
    

    This will create a folder WaveEdit in home
    There you go cd WaveEdit

    Then try the commands above.
    Good luck!

    Did the git clone. Then I got this:

    $ make

    Sorry, delete the folder WaveEdit.
    Try again with

    git clone https://github.com/AndrewBelt/WaveEdit.git
    

    Then go on.

    Works!!! Awesome! Thanks everyone! (It requires Alsa to work, doesn’t seem to accept Jack audio connections for now, but a really neat tool for making waveforms!)
    Thanks again for everyone’s patience with me. 🙂

    That one wasn’t actually that difficult in the end. Especially with all your help!

    –So, if I find a 64-bit app that I can get the source from (ie at Github), does that mean it will then compile on a 32-bit too? Or was this particular application “special?”

    As a general rule, source code is platform-agnostic.
    When compiling, you instruct the compiler which platform(s) and / or architectures to target.
