IMPORTANT FEATURES REQUEST For Wavelab 10
- ability to group the tracks, it’s an absolute necessity for stem mastering.
For instance, I need the original track to compare with a group of tracks.
And I need to sum tracks in a group then treat the group with FX, not affecting the OUT.
The new effect architecture in a montage would be clip > track > group > Out
comparison A/B between (new) groups in the montage, this without any silence gap when A/B ing (or any distracting sound blip or artifact)
group solo function
ability to sidechain whatever plugin VST3 from one track to another or even to one (future) group.
Funny to see that actual true sidechain plugin in the wavelab 9.5 is the same one from wavelab 4 or older…) still using the old quad channel trick…
ability to make automations on track effects during all the montage project like cubase
ability to sync files automatically
automatic silence detection on each file start and ability to impose a pre-programmed pregap time.
Exemple : mix files have various starting points with sometimes lot of silence on the beggining.
I need each file go get 100 ms of pregap. Sensitivity threshold must goes to -144 dB to take account of 24 bit non-dithered files silence gaps.
Automatic intelligent detection more effective. Current version doesn’t work most of the time (unusable).
added functions for vinyl or cassette mastering (ability to use sides for naming the tracks, for example, LP1 : A1, A2, A3, etc to B6 LP2 : C1 to D5, etc for naming the tracks)
ability to open several AUX OUTs in order to send the sound of GROUPS to a 3d party analyzer, in order to compare frequency curves between original mix and master in real time
ability to send start, stop, pause, silence start, silence end, etc, logic 1/0 signals out to any kind of serial interface in order to drive automatically a vinyl cutting lathe
ability to customize completely CD (or vinyl / cassette) report. Spreadshit are ugly and unreadable, the software should be able to get optimized spreadsheets that can countain 20 songs in one page.
We are waiting for serious evolution for Wavelab 10 ! With those functions, wavelab 10 could reach the professionnal grade for mastering, which we are waiting for so long.
Thanks to send a confirmation that my request have been transmitted to the wavelab crew.
