Also, with what other major audio software can you communicate directly with the person who is doing the major work? Somebody who asked for more details to reproduce issues and lets you know that it’s confirmed to be fixed in the next update, and when that update will be?
It’s no secret that this is a somewhat small community of us on the forum regularly, and while we’d all love for WaveLab to be perfect all the time, the reality is that here we all are trying to help each other out. Sometimes a problem is user related, or because they didn’t know about something that can already be done. Sometimes it’s a bug that has to be fixed by WaveLab. In a group this small, it’s all the same to me, because the communication is open. When I think of Logic or Pro Tools, there is no clue if anybody is even listening.
It seems a little odd that @Vocalpoint expects everybody else to be the guinea pigs rather than offering any help in the process. If it were me, I’d install WaveLab 10 ASAP so any issues that may pop up can be fixed in 10.0.30 which is actively being worked on, or could have already been addressed in 10.0.20. Could internal testing and release timing of WL10 been better? Maybe, but that is water under the bridge.
Not all configurations and workflows the same, so it’s entirely possible that @Vocalpoint will encounter no problems. Especially now in 10.0.20.
I for one use WaveLab everyday without any problems that have me considering 9.5.50, and it’s been this way for awhile. To add to this, you can use WaveLab 10 and 9.5 at the same time so there is no real danger in trying. Rather than complaining about other complaints on forums, time would be better spent actually trying the software, reporting issues (if any), and they can be fixed in the next update. Anything else is a waste of time or delaying the inevitable.
If WaveLab and the features added for version 10 are important to you, then this is the only logical thing to do. Not helping and expecting others to do the dirty work makes no sense, plus, no two systems are 100% alike so you’ll never really know until you jump in and try it.
If WaveLab and the features added for version 10 are not important to you, why even come to the forum?
