I´m really desperate at the moment as I´m not able to mix or master my music at 96kHz.
The latest version of Wavelab crashes every time I try to master a track.
As soon as I start playback, the sound begins to stutter and then its completely gone, silence. No crash file is generated as WL is still running and playback my file, but yeah… without being able to hear anything.
In the plugin chain of the track I use only Fabfilter Q3 and Ozone 8, nothing else. In the master buss, some restoration plugins from Izotope like De-Click, De-Crackle and the Dither plugin. Nothing else.
When I try to master the same files in Cubase, I have the same issues or similar ones but I have to say that I´m able to work much longer in Cubase than in WL.
Are my computer specs not good enough for working at 96kHz? I have optimized my pc the best I could, working only with external drives, ssd etc… shutting down anti-virus, mail software and even the internet connection while working, but nothing seems to help.
It seems that the Izotope plugins generate extremely high cpu usage, according to the Cubase peak and average load meters. Does WL have also a meter where I can track the cpu usage? I couldn´t find anything. But even whithout any Izotope plugin I´m not able to work at 96hHz.
I also noticed that WL is using only one or two from 16 logical cores I have, during these high cpu load times while playback. And this two cores are always almost at 100% while the other cores are never higher than 1% or 2 %. Do I have to enable cpu multi-processing manually and if yes, where can I do that?
Any help appreciated!
