Yes, I agree too. To me, the issue with the plugins in unacceptable. Sure, maybe the 3rd party plugins aren’t coded 100% correct, but they seemed to work just fine in earlier versions of Wavelab 7 and pretty much every other host…I use Pro Tools and Logic on the same machine as WL7 on a daily basis and no issues there.
I think that a 7.2.1 update fixing this issue and a few others is extremely essential and I would like to think it would be available soon,
I do appreciate PG taking the time to implement so many of the suggestions from myself and other users on this forum, but some of these new issues make 7.2.1 nearly unusable…
Note that the main issues concern Windows (Lame and DX plugins), not Mac.
OSX users should not be afraid to update. Most plugins work OK on Mac (according to many OSX testers I have).
BTW, I was in touch with Izotope. They have found that the problem is on their side (their plugin make a false assumption specifically about WaveLab 7.2, which they have to correct).
If Izotope plugins are important to you, use WaveLab 7.1.1 until you get an Izotope update. I noted that some of their VST (not VST3) plugins don’t have the problem.
Correct, iZotope VST does work better, but i still get the problem with white windows that don’t like to close and always re-appear when I go back to Wavelab from another program, even when the plugin windows were closed. It’s really a lot of work to close or move these windows each time I switch back to Wavelab, especially when they don’t want to close or leave a big white square where they used to be. This happens with Waves, UAD and iZotope and I have all the current versions of the plugins. I haven’t had time to test any others. I’ve tried Waves in VST (rather than VST-3) and I still get the same issue with the windows not behaving correctly. UAD is only VST at the moment.
Do you suggest that I do a full reinstall of Wavelab to try and fix this problem? I’m not sure if it’s an issue with just my machine or if other people are experiencing the plugin window problem on Mac 10.7.2
Ok, do you think it’s something that could be fixed? Or should I abandon Wavelab 7 if I need to use Waves, UAD and other 3rd party plugins?
I don’t know, but I won’t invite you not to use WaveLab
Many testers use Waves and UAD and don’t have this issue. I will still try to reproduce it here.
As a side note, this issue concern “Carbon” plugins, and all plugin manufacturers are currently switching to Cocoa (as their plugin can’t work with Carbon on 64 bit hosts).
Do you still have that version on the website to download if I need to for now?
Do you think it’s realistic for a fix for the white plugins (and how the plugins reappear when switching from other programs) within a week or two? Sorry to be a hassle, I just need to know if I should go back to 7.1 or just wait it out a little bit until there is a 7.2.1
iZotope was kind enough to link me to a beta version of Ozone 5 that works as VST-3, it also doesn’t have the problem of reopening every time I switch back to the Audio Montage. Most other plugins do like Waves and UAD.
Do we need to contact all these plugin makers and tell them there is an issue with Wavelab? or is it something that can be fixed in Wavelab as far as the white GUI and reappearing problem goes?
