Hello once again,
I have a couple of questions regarding W8 (full version):
I have just finished mastering a project which was mixed in 32bit/96k. After the mastering is finished, I resample to 44.1k and dither to 16 bit. One of the new plugins is the isotope MBit+ dithering plugin, which I used. When I render, I ‘create named file’ and put it in a new folder. One of the settings is the ‘file format’. My question is: does this have any effect on the previous resampling and dithering; does this dither the file twice? If I leave the file format at ‘match file’, it seems to ‘see’ the new sample rate but not the dithering, so the file ends up being 44.1k at 32 bit. I put the Crystal Resampler in one of the effect slots and I put isotope in the dithering slot Should I put izotope in an effects slot as well so the ‘match file’ function will work as expected? Can I bypass that altogether? Or would it be better to batch process this step?
This has to do with setting the preference for how the dials on plugins work. I set them to linear and all of the Steinberg plugins work as expected. But I have a lot of UAD plugins that I use in mastering and it doesn’t seem to have any effect on them. The buttons still only respond to circular adjusting. Previous Wavelab versions could do this. Is there a special command for applying this to third party plugins?
