I’ve been having this issue for a while now. A technique I use often, and have been doing so since the introduction of the spectrum editor, is to make a selection and then apply a gain change, negative or positive using a key command. When I’m working on a restoration project, like an old 78 rpm record, I can end of doing this hundreds of times for a three minute song. When I start working fast, WL inevitably crashes. I’ve learned to save my work constantly, but it’s becoming very distracting. A similar technique I use in the spectrum editor is copy/paste using the “Define Source at Cursor” option. Same thing, it crashes constantly. I think this issue started to show up for me around WL10, maybe WL11. I’d love to get to the bottom of this.
I’ve never sent a crash report before, what’s the process? I’m assuming the information needed is in the “Problem Report for Wavelab Pro 11” dialog that pops up following the crash. Then where do I send it?
Hi … I use the first technique extensively and have to say that … at least on a Windows machine … this has been solid since 9.5. I typically use this in m/s display. It follows I am unable to think why this is happening.
Perhaps temporarily change the shortcut key … just in case there’s some sort of non-obvious conflict within OSX or something.
I don’t really use second technique much at all but I have been requesting a fully featured Sequoia style ‘four point destination cut’’ function over time. While Sequo*a and I didn’t really get along all that well, I have to admit the elegance of this feature. I appreciate that there are work arounds that approximate the function (and I use those) but so far I have found nothing quite as elegant.
Thanks for this! I tried using a different shortcut key and the same thing happens. Good thought though. I was on Windows until WL9.5 then switched over to Mac. I’ve been very happy so far with the switch except for the somewhat recent crashing issue. I rely very heavily on both techniques…I’ve got the copy/paste down to a single keyboard shortcut using a macro on Keyboard Maestro so at any moment I can either repair a bad section by increasing or decreasing the level or just copy and pasting from where my cursor is. It’s simple, efficient and effective.
Got it. It may be tomorrow before I can do this. As for what I did, it’s always as I mentioned above: Spectrum editor > Change level > -3 dB (sometimes +3 dB) > Apply. I have this as a keyboard shortcut “q”. So I’m using the Rectangle Selection tool and hitting “q” repeatedly. A crash happens at some point when I hit the “q”. It could be after 20 or 50 instances of using the shortcut.
