I really like working with Wavelab 8. The one feature I miss since switching from Samplitude to Wavelab is the lack of automation on plug ins. With not having object editing of Samplitude, automation for plug ins is very helpful to adjust things on a mix.
Do you think there is a possibility Steinberg could assist in adding their read/write buttons on plug ins in Wavelab. That would be a big help. One plug in I really like to use it on is the UAD or Waves SSL 2 Bus. There is a great fade out control on it that I use a lot.
