I’m re-posting a link to a topic in the old forum… I don’t really understand why the more recent topics “AT LEAST” weren’t moved to this new forum???
Here’s my issues:
I have been using Wavelab just about everyday since Version 2 & have a few issues & or questions.
I run a facility for $$$ & depend on my tools & came to trust my previous versions of CB.
One Major issue I have:
The SPECTROGHAPH has changed to show a MUCH deeper level, like -90 dB or so - while the old WL only showed about -36 dB which I became VERY accustom to … Why has this changed & HOW can I change the scale??? This is very important to see what’s going on in a smaller range… when mastering the new scale is WAY too much!
I really like WL7 but this is a problem for me.
PG, Before you answer I’ll post your original response:
Just next to the Spectrum tab, there is a Setting icon. Click on it and you can adjust what you call the depth.
MASTER Section = it’s buttons & what’s up with the dB scale?
It has been made more accurate near 0 dB. Since the Master Section height can vary, this scale is rebuilt when size changes.
Thanks for responding but that’s not the right window… It’s actually called "Spectroscope"
I’ve looked everywhere & cannot find how to adjust the scale???
PLEASE don’t tell me I’m stuck with a -96dB scale… I don’t mind being able to have the “Option” to look that deep (-96db) into the music but it’s just too much when mastering!
For years I’ve used Wavelab & not only got used to it but like the range it had (aprox = -36dB) HOPFULLY it’s adjustable & not “Fixed” in this new Version 7.
Spectroscope? I thought you meant Spectrogram.
I plan to add a scale setting> , but you must understand that this is a “scope” not a “meter”, which means this view it to give a rough estimation of the frequency contents. For a more accurate display, the more standard FFT view is to be used.
Cool, I look forward to that update.
Also, I do understand that the Scope is more of an “Average” but is is possible to add the options to make it more accurate?
(like RME’s digicheck software… it also has the “Bar - Spectroscope” but it’s called “Spectral Analyzer” & has several adjustment options)
I’m sure you’re familiar with it… if not, you should check it out.
It would be great to have that inside of WL7.
To put a finer point on it: I virtually ALWAYS master with SpectraFoo running BOTH Spectragram and Spectragraph (their version of your scope). If we could trim the scale as suggested, and include an “infinite hold” option with some manual clear mechanism, I would probably not bother and rely entirely on WL7.
This is beneficial to you as well as users; Generally speaking one less DSP-hogging app running on customer machines is a good thing, making support easier (thus cheaper to deliver). If nothing else, it lets you tell users “turn off Foo” during troubleshooting/bug-hunts, without a lot of undue drama.
Some tweaking of this feature is in order for it to be more than bling…
PG… When will this be addressed
VU Meter RMS readings measure HIGHER than earlier versions of WL… aprox 2dB.
The behavior of the OUTPUT METER (stand alone window, NOT master section meter!)
OK, This one is really messing with me… #1 it’s not reading the output levels the same as EVERY version of CB before this one… particularly the “Center - Green” RMS Level
Before you tell me I can change the “Way it works”… I already know that & NONE of the settings get me there… WHY? & why did it change …& to what?
Another thing I don’t understand is:
Why would you add the “KATS” Metering but leave out the “RMS - Kats Metering”???
This is the one I use the MOST!
Please add SOME sort of RMS Metering choice… preferably the KATS!!!
Here are a few other issues I have jotted down:
Select clip (montage) doesn’t show “Length” when selected (it use to down on the right bottom of the window)
Select range (wave) doesn’t show “Length” when selected (it use to down on the right bottom of the window)
When changing to alternate UAD plugs they don’t unload the 1st one & consumes UAD resources.
Should have a MASTER BYPASS - for ALL in the clip plugin chain
Also, the “Chain” should have the option of being saved… + saved to a format/file that can be opened in the MASTER SECTION Plugs.
This would be MORE than a “Feature”… it’s about workflow & this would be VERY cool!
Mete Normalizer - Not only is slow as hell but after completing the process, it doesn’t “SHOW” the actual gain changes to the file…. The older WL versions did, when holding the curser over the volume envelope line.
No option to “Create Folder” when saving master preset chains!
*** CORRECTION - There is BUT there’s NO “Navigation control” to “Choose” the location you want to PUT the “new Folder”!!! Crazy & a PITA
No option to RENAME when “rendering a CLIP” from the montage… this is a PITA
***PG, sorry if my tone may come off too aggressive… I wrote many of these issues down when I was frustrated… working on important, time conscious & payed sessions. My questions here are not random & were well thought out before posting.
I look forward to your response & hopefully some light at the end of the tunnel for a few of these issues.
