Overall I enjoy Wavelab 7.
I would love to be able to disable the changing of track faders with the scroll wheel. The way I work, I’ve found myself accidentally changing the gain (presumably while trying to zoom), and sometimes it’s hard to notice before it’s too late.
I would also like to see a warning if you’re about to burn or render a montage with a different Master Section than saved with the session, or no master at all.
I wish there was a way to render files by CD track, and have Wavelab automatically add 01, 02, 03 etc in front of each file name so I don’t have to do it manually. With less and less people pressing actual CD’s, I think this would be a great feature.
I also wish the montage save as… function didn’t default to the Wavelab/audio montage folder on my system drive. I think most people use a dedicated audio hard drive and have a folder for each artist/project. I wish the save as prompt box would be able to find the folder where all or most of the source audio files are coming from and offer to save there first.
I still think the PQ report could be more efficient. I remember in Wavelab I could print a PQ list for an average CD on one sheet of paper with all the info with reasonable text size. Now I’m averaging 2 or 3 sheets per typical full-length CD.
Overall I’m a happy Wavelab 7 user, especially happy to have something decent for Mac. However, unless Wavelab can sort out these little things, I’ll probably be interested in checking out Samplitude/Sequoia when that is available for Mac. I see what people are saying when they say that WL7 for Mac looks like a bad PC program, but it doesn’t really bother me as much as the functions themselves.
Thanks PG for your excellent work and for checking this forum often.
