Wave Link is the audio mixing software for the Elgato Wave microphones. Together with the Wave microphone, up to eight other audio sources can be mixed together and two separate outputs; a monitor mix and a stream mix are created.

Inputs into Wave Link can be program audio, such as games, Discord voice chat, music, web browsers, other microphone inputs and capture cards.

In cases where actual malware is found, the packages are subject to removal. Software sometimes has false positives. Moderators do not necessarily validate the safety of the underlying software, only that a package retrieves software from the official distribution point and/or validate embedded software against official distribution point (where distribution rights allow redistribution).
