There are two issues I noticed while playing around with Wavelab 8.5.
Messing with the plugins, in particular the post-processing and dithering seems to change the pitch and speed that the audio is played at sometimes. This was also causing a mono file to appear as stereo with 2 channels instead of 1 on the master level. I haven’t been able to figure out how to reproduce the issue predictably, it just happens once in a while. To fix this, I have to remove a plug-in from one of the slots and add it back in. The problem seems to happen mostly after I disable a plugin.
The second thing I noticed are files playing past the gray dashed lines that mark the end of the track, this happens often. For example, if I have a song that is 4 minutes long, Wavelab plays past that to something like 4 minutes 15 seconds before it stops. Is this some feature that I overlooked?
