Running WaveLab 188.8.131.520 under Mac OS X 10.8.3.
I am dubbing from DAT into WaveLab, using my MacBook’s optical input. I have had trouble with sample rates in that if the DAT is 48, and I set WaveLab to save the file as 44, WaveLab crashes as soon as I play the tape. (It’s a portable DAT machine with no display of sample rate, so I have to suck it and see.) I have to then change all the input settings so that it forgets the input, change the sample rate, then reapply the input settings. If I try to change the sample rate while the input is still selected (even if not running) it also crashes. That’s been a royal pain to sort out but I’ve managed it and have copied one tape successfully.
The next tape has obviously been reused and is mostly in 48 but then changes to the old 44 material when the new 48 material stops. WaveLab’s response to this was to crash and to loose or fail to save the last hour of the 48 material which wanted.
I’m not sure how to get around this problem. Any suggestions?
