record dialogue box RED when recording

this just started happening today out of the blue, without (knowingly) changing any settings… when i initiate a recording in wavelab… now the whole record window changes to a red color, like something is wrong… it didn’t do this before…

nothing in the manual about it… any ideas what’s up?

By design, “red light” to show that you’re in this special state.

weird… it’s never turned red like this before when i recorded… and i use it every day for recording…

is there a setting somewhere for the actual color of the dialogue box?


i’m also questioning it because it happened right after i double clicked a WAV file that loaded wave lab, but didn’t actually open the file… nothing happened… tried another file from the same client… same thing… so i chalked it up to some sort of corruption in the wav file… and they opened fine in Pro Tools…

but since that failed attempt to load the WAV files the color of my record dialogue box has become this deep red

related or coincidence, i don’t know

never mind… must be because i updated from 9.0.20 to 9.0.35… i’m sure that’s it…

best find me some 9.0.35 change logs!
