WL11 drives me crazy when using multichannel files. I’m using 5.1.
Some operations I’m not able to do, maybe somebody can give me hints etc.
Before I will get mad.
Replacement of a file in audio montage by another file stored on disk.
My montage is already done, markers are set, transitions were done. Now I want to
replace files by a new version. But I want to keep everything else.
No moving of the other files, no change of transitions, no marker should change.
It should all remain as it is.
May be I’ve to cut at the beginning and/or end a bit, only trimming.
How can I treat the group of front L+R, C, LFE, rear L+R just like a stereo file?
I want to apply all fades equal to all 6 channels. They should be exactly the same on all 6!
As well I want to trim, cut, move or what ever with the complete 5.1 Track.
How can I bundle them in montage into something like a group, cluster or whatever it might be called??? Where is the button to do this? On/Off …
Hmm, I’ve sometimes stereo CDs as target and so I’ve a 2.0 montage. Cue-sheet, Text, markers, transitions. All there. Containing everything. Now my idea is to use this for a surround montage too. I was lucky to read the announcement of WL’s multi channel capabilities. I was lucky. I was.
Recording, arranging and mixing is done in Nuendo. Thomas, you could be right.
But it could be so easy in wavelab. But it isn’t.
WL is a GREAT DAW BUT!!! it is not a full multi channel DAW, You cannot mix multichannel audio in it as it has no mixer. I don’t think PG or Steinberg ever envisioned it as a multi channel DAW it is primarily a stereo or two channel mastering app that has had some “multi channel features” added as users requested them. If you do a lot of multi channel work a different DAW would probably more suited to what you are doing FWIW
As I wrote before, all excerpt the “mastering” and “montage” is done in Nuendo. I’m on V8 because I know the workarounds for some annoying bugs and there are no plans for atmos so far. So no need to upgrade.
It would be so helpful to do 5.1 after doing 2.0 (CD mostly) in WL. In general it works, WL11 does not crash when loading some kind of 5.1 files as WL10 did. But why is it so complicated (almost impossible) to do that what I mentioned before? Is there something I have overseen in montage?
Where is the knob or menu to group a track with L+R+C+LFE+SL+SR together (in montage!)?
Is there one? Thanks.
BTW: I made it. With a lot of patience.
It would be so easy to “tie” all channels together so I can apply all fades exactly to all of them.
In the audio editor there is a button for this that I miss in montage.
A very useful feature is exporting markers as xml. Those can be imported in WL10.
WL10’s DVD-A function is not broken as WL11’s is.
Finally I used my old WL6 for doing the DVD-A. (unfortunately those markers can’t imported so
this has to be done manually)
But DVD-A creation is a different topic. And: yes, a bit outdated I know.
