WaveLab 10.0.10 update available

Dear Forum members,

We are pleased to announce the availability of first maintenance update for WaveLab Pro and Elements and version 10.0.10.
This version includes several improvements as well as resolving over 50 issues in different areas of the application .

The update is available for download from the Steinberg website and via the Steinberg Download Assistant.

For detailed information, please read the corresponding version history on the download page.

All the best,

YEA Finally! Hope it too is not as buggy as WL10 the original…

looking forward to seeing if it makes 10 usable for me!

don’t see anything in the change log about the accidental auto-saving of audio files when applying plug ins to a file edited from a montage… that’s the big one for me.

Thanks for this … I installed that last night (my time) and it feelz soooo much more solid.

So much better.

Agree! Feels much more solid and stable.



Now WL 10 refuses to open. (PC Windows 10) no problem with WL 9.5.5. Ideas???

It may be that you need to re-sync your dongle through eLicenser Control … meaning the app is looking for a WL 10 license and can’'t ‘see’ it due to an update/glitch.

If that doesn’t address the issue … when you say ‘refuses to open’ … do you see a ‘This App Can’t Open’ screen … or do you get to the WL splash screen which then disappears or hangs … or does nothing happen at all?

Will it run as administrator (suggesting a security/permissions issue)?

If you cntrl+alt+delete . task manager … is what’s running what you expect to be running?

I will check all those things. Thanks for the suggestions, really appreciate your time.

Audio analysis still doesn’t work as expected :frowning: . When I try to do an analysis by using the “Selected audio” option, it seems to make the analysis, but I get blank FFT and Spectro Scope readings. This make the program still useless for me, I’ll have to use 9.5 instead. This in very annoying.

This works perfect here in 10.0.10. Please verify in the about box, that 10.0.10 was really applied.
Else, do you have special settings for the FFT meter. Try with the default settings, as a start.


I love CuBase and Steinberg…but really feeling a tad disappointed that the updates to Wavlab Elements 10.10 continually crash on opening. I t is definitely the 10.0.10 update…I managed to check that. It opens for a few seconds than crashes. I know there is a whole debate around is wavLab useful anymore…and since this problem (which began with me paying for the update) I have been mastering in CuBase 10.5 Pro.

Its annoying forking out for something and it not working…even if it wasn’t a lot to fork! It’s the principle. I have looked at forums, and see it has happened to others…I have re downloaded and reinstalled…I wondered if it was Wave plugin related and can’t seem to get into where to look.

Certainly don’t have me wanting Wavlab Pro…and maybe some other mastering software won’t do this. Exporting from mix down in Cubase has the same effect.

Can someone help me before I dump it all together…I was on a journey using it to master for SoundCloud uploads…

Apple error report below.

Opps its too many words for this post…bugga. will see if I can just include system data…to answer all that stuff people may ask…Cubase 10 pro runs totally fine…

Some help would be so appreciated. System info and other shite at the bottom of file.

This same issue in Mac had been driving me nits…while not a heavy user it was part of my workflow for mastering and uploading to SoundCloud. Just reinstalled 9.5 and works fine . Had done everything I could after paying for the 10.0.5 update and continual crashing on opening. Hate paying for something and it not working…and the answer not being there.

There is something about WL 10 that is buggy. Maybe some bit of code that was changed from 9.5.5 (which works perfectly). I know WL is complex and there are many things that have been changed from 9.5.5 but I just need it to work on a day to day basis so I can get some work done. I have been using WL since version 1.6.2 and except for WL 7 and 8 which, IMHO, were disasters WL has been a stellar DAW. My favorite version has always been WL6. Hopefully this is just a bump in the road and soon it will be back to being the best DAW for mastering on the planet. YEA PG!!!

crashing on opening

Try erasing this file:
/Users/YourName/Library/Preferences/WaveLab Pro 10.0/Preferences/General.dat

Sometimes when switching plugins on and off WL10.0.10 loses audio and hitting play does nothing, a restart is required.
Anyone else experience this odd behaviour?

Same thing noticed here. Just another “bug” in a long list of bugs…

Still unusable in my studio. When using UAD plugins, the processing time is 3-4 times as long as when rendering this exact effects chain in WL8. Please fix this so WL10 is actually an improvement, or at least works as well as a previous version released 7 years ago.

UAD rendering time will be back to “normal” in next update, but I don’t think the speed regression was as much as you quote.

Effects chain rendering for a particular montage in WL10 pro is 10:50
The same exact effects chain rendering duplicate montage in WL8 1:26 … actually I was conservative and it’s even worse than I quoted.

This is not a subtle issue as you suggest, it’s a time wasting deal-breaker on this being usable in a professional studio.
