I (finally) got the WL9 Trial installed…
I have spent dozens of posts LAMBASTING PG for turning my fave app of all time (WL4) into my least fave app of all time (WL7). So I just wanna say… WOW.
Whoever designed the WL9 UI knocked it out of the park. Unlike WL7 or WL8 I haven’t had to crack the manual even -once-. The whole thing works the way I -expect- it to. Not an easy feat given the deep feature-set. WELL DONE! WELL DONE!
Master Rig is -fantastic-. The M/S stuff is one of those things I didn’t know I needed and instantly can’t see living without.
Niggles? Not too many. Oddly, I was never one of those who clamoured for ‘automation’ simply because the guy who masters my records (and he does have 2-3 Grammy’s) NEVER uses automation (his message: “If you need automation, you need to re-mix.” Words to live by.)
Anyhoo, two LONGSTANDING requests:
A feature request I’ve had since forever: I REALLY wish you would give the Spectrum Editor at least -some- of the flexibility of Sony or Izotope. It desperately needs multi-point editing.
I want NOTES. I want a Notepad, like Cubase, which I can attach to each Montage -and- to each clip in a Montage. I’m constantly using pads of paper to track what I’ve done to various parts of a project. All that should be stored inside the project.
That aside? I’m hard pressed to think of anything that’s missing.
