So, there is currently confusion about which version of KeenWave is actually the most up-to-date. I'm quoting Stew from the forums:

"I'm looking for the latest version of KeenWave to try and edit Keen Vorticons sounds. Shikadi.net's KeenWiki only has what appears to be the initial release of KeenWave on its site. Despite the filename saying it is version 1.11 from November 2014, it actually appears (due to the 2010-08-08 date of the EXE inside) to be the initial release of the program and does not have a KEENWAVE.DAT.
[...] I'm guessing KeenWiki is talking about the 2014 version but somehow there was an archiving error and they accidentally packaged the original version?"

@Levellass could you please comment on that / share the lastest version of KeenWave, so I can update the info of this page?

Levellass didn't comment on this, but could it be that it's simply a ZIP file with the wrong date in its name and the older version inside? The author had updated this page in 2011 and the version number was already 1.1. Also, Wayback Machine contains a snapshot of keenwave.zip from Levellass's Dropbox taken in December 2014, which also contains the 2011 version. Maybe that one IS the most recent KeenWave release? --Grandy02 (talk) 20:19, 25 December 2020 (UTC)
I can confirm it. When I wanted to start my sound experience I chose WDC but as it was too complicated I changed my mind and chose Keenwave. In the tutorial on the page it showed the file "KEENWAVE.DAT" but in my folder I saw only Keenwave.EXE and IDWAVE.TXT--DarkAle (talk) 20:49, 25 December 2020 (UTC)
The question is whether the file from March 2011 is the latest one, despite the 2014 date in the filename. Well, it appears to be the case. In a post from 2018, Levellasss wrote that the EXE's size is 226KB. That's the size of the 2011 executable file. So, everything should be okay now, I hope.

Great find! -- Nisaba (talk) 01:17, 27 December 2020 (UTC)
EDIT: Are you sure about the file size? On my end the 2011th version counts 231.936 Bytes. -- Nisaba (talk) 19:22, 4 January 2021 (UTC)
The file size is exactly the same. In KB, it's 226,5 - at least when you divide by 1024, which is what Windows does. --Grandy02 (talk) 16:04, 5 January 2021 (UTC)
