OK, I’ve reproduced the problem with a small file. I’ve uploaded the WAV file (containing just audience noise for a few seconds), the .mon file I created and the resulting FLAC file to here.
The steps I took:
- Open the WAV file in Wavelab’s file editor.
- Choose File - Export - Create audio montage from current file
- Check to see that it’s 48 kHz
- Choose Render with default options (flac hq)
- The new FLAC file opens in Wavelab and is at 44.1 kHz
Again, I made a screencast to show what I did. Can you reproduce this?
I also tried the same thing after having deleted all the plugins from the effects queue as well as from Dithering and Post Processing - no change in outcome.
Interestingly, though, I also get 44.1 kHz when I choose WAV 24 bit as output - so it’s not limited to FLAC.
And when I manually set the output sampling rate to 48000, I do get 48000 (after a stern warning that Wavelab recommends the “Use input stream” setting), but that’s not the point (I think). The point is why Wavelab appears to think that the input stream is 44.1k when it’s clearly 48k…
