you need to be more specific about what a 'wave file' is - what software created the file? Most files people import into matlab are 'waves' of some kind.

if a 'wave' file means a .wav, there is a function matlab 'wavread' that might do the trick.

if it is some other common program output, it still might be a standard format that matlab can read.

If not, it might get a bit more complex, but still totally doable. You need to know the sampling rate at which the data was gathered. and you need a specification document for the file type

If your data is in a format that is not directly supported by matlab. No matter, as long as you have a specification for the file format.

if you know the sampling rate and have some kind of specification for the file, matlab can read the file byte by byte and transform it into something you can use. But you'll need to write code; I can give instructions. I probably have code somewhere that does this for MRI data/

If the file is non-standard, get back to me with as much specific information about the filetype and originating program as you can (maybe even an example file) and I'll let you know how to get it running
