I like WL9, but I hate it when I’m doing surround. I miss a lot of things that WL6 has (DVD-A with menus etc.). But WL6 cannot do FLAC export.
So I thought it would be a good idea to load WL6 montages into WL9. This works if you erase all text & picture tracks and
resave your montage in V9 format. The project I’m actually working has 2.0 and 5.1. I use two montage sets.
In WL9 I could export stereo FLAC, 24 bit, everything is fine without metadata. Although there is a lot of information in the montage,
marker named and so on there are no tags written. Ok, I do it manually (costs some time).
But: If I export the 5.1 montage to FLAC, it is only stereo. I’ve chosen “Multichannel”!
Ok, here is the workaround: export the files as multichannel WAV and convert them externally (costs a lot of time again, because is did not work with 24 bit actually).
This is bothering and makes me sometimes .
The good thing is, I could finish my work using some workarounds.
PS: Using WL 9.1. I would update for more surround capabilities.
