When I do an Audio Mixdown I have the option to open the mix in WL, so I tried to do this as a time saver. The WL window opens with the file and everything looks good - but as I play the file, about 3 seconds into it, WLE8 locks up. To close the program I have to go down to the task bar area and click things a bit. Win7 tells me the program is not responding and gives me an option to close it. I do this and nothing is saved, it reverts to an earlier session, the latest one before I tried to transfer the mixdown file.
When I open the file in WLE8 from the WLE8 program in the typical manner, everything is fine. It just doesn’t like the Cubase connection. Has this been noted by others?
Also another thing to report, when exporting to MP3, the first three times I did this, WLE8 opened a 16bit version of the rendered MP3 file that was saved elsewhere (my normal save place). This was odd, but it eventually stopped doing this and seems to be OK now. In other words, WLE8 does not open or play MP3 files, just as WLE7 did not play them. This is correct, eh?
BTW, I love how the space bar will now initiate ‘play’. On this note, is there any way to create a personal keyboard command to move the curser?
WLE8 is a GREAT program, BTW, not a complainer here.
