WaveLab seems to be advertised as a mastering tool. How well does it work for production work, e.g. sound design, sfx foley collages, sampler instrument making, etc. etc?
I’ve only tested WaveLab LE 9.5, which is really limited. What makes me curious about Pro is that WaveLab has the fastest playback engine that I’ve seen. You can literally select a range, have playback looped, and move the region as you wish – it never looses focus and just keeps playing, which is quite impressing to me. And the Montage feature (which I can’t explore fully in LE) seems very promising for sound design as well.
