Hello! I already posted this in the German section of the forum (see https://www.steinberg.net/forums/viewtopic.php?f=298&t=175211), but since there wasn’t any response yet, I’ve decided to post this again in the English section (even if these points may be already known … and it seems that there is more going on here).
Since I’m using the German Version of WaveLab, the used terms might not be fully correct, I’ll just try to go with my common knowlegde of language, or try to explain it.
I’m using WaveLab 10.0.10 on Windows 10 Pro and with the Generic Low Latency ASIO Driver. No other special audio equipment.
Here we go…
In an audio montage I have the option to show a grid. Initially the lines are correctly aligned to the time (or whatever measurement I select), but as soon as I zoom in or out (via [ctrl]+[mousewheel] or [arrow up/down]), the lines get misaligned (see attachment). I even had a few cases, where the grid-lines of one track were misaligned to the (misaligned) lines of other tracks (I don’t know the conditions for this, though … maybe some editing or adding of effects). The lines align correctly again, as soon as I move a clip, resize the montage window or just make a selection within the montage.
I know it’s not a severe bug (because it’s just an “optical” error, not a functional error), but it is sometimes confusing and the feature works fine in WaveLab Pro 9.5.
Zoom with mousewheel in audio montage:
I’m used to zoom with [ctrl]+[mousewheel]. In WL 9.5 I can zoom right to the point, where my mouse-cursor is located - free from the acutal position of the red position-marker. It’s an easy and fast way to navigate within an audio montage (and I’m used to it that way in other applications, too). In WL 10 it doesn’t work that way anymore, it just zooms me either centered to the red position-marker, or centered to the current visible section of the montage, if the red marker is outside that section (I think this is just the behavior of zooming with [arrow up/down]).
When I’m working in the audio-editor, the zoom with mousewheel works just fine as I’m used to.
And another bug I encountered recently (works fine in WL 9.5): When zooming in into an audio montage with [ctrl]+[mousewheel] (and even with [arrow up/down]), at a certain magnification (near or at the “microscope” zoom-level) the visible section of the montage jumps straight to the beginning of the montage, instead to the section I wanted to zoom in. The combination [Z]>[M] itself works fine, though.
When I want to render multiple montages via the function “Render” > “Multi” to WAV-files or temporary files, then nothing happens as soon as I click “Start” - no error message, it just doesn’t do anything. And again, this function works fine in WL 9.5 (with same export settings).
In general I think WL 10 is good, but I would like to see these things fixed. I would further use WL 9.5, but since I installed the 9.5.5 Update just some weeks ago I cannot fully use some plug-ins from Melda Production that I’m often working with (neither VTS2 or VST3 … they worked fine in WL 9.5.4, and they work fine in WL 10.0.10 and Adobe Audition CC), so I’m arranging with WL 10 for now and hope for a new update (since the WL 9.5.4 Update isn’t available for Windows anymore).
