How can .wav files be created on an iPhone or iPad? I want to customize the sounds that Outlook for Windows plays when certain events occur and it would be nice if I could make .wav files on a mobile device and transfer them back afterwards.

Twisted Wave

This looks like a solid piece of audio editing software. It uses the internal microphone on your iPad to record audio and can export to .wav or many other formats.
