I’ve been wondering why Wavelab hasn’t been updated with the latest UI libraries that Cubase 8 is using.
As a matter of fact, since both programs are developed by Steinberg, there is not practical reason why they could not be sharing UI and software interface (API) libraries.
I’d be very fond of Steinberg considering this: It would make sense to expand the Cubase DAW environment to support Wavelab projects, effectively unifying WaveLab into the DAW environment as a module, similarly to VSTs that are capable of running as standalone applications or inside the DAW, e.g. Halion 5.
I hope you find the idea useful for future development of Wavelab’s user experience.
