I want to ask if Wavelab 11 Pro supports Intel HyperThreading? As I see on my i7 12700K it uses only 1 of 2 threads on each core. So on kinda heavy loaded project it barely uses only 50% of my CPU capabilities. Is there a way to fully unlock full hyperthreading potential in WaveLab 11 Pro as it seems kinda weird and unfortunate if this is true?
Yes WaveLab uses Intel HyperThreading. But Intel HyperThreading does not mean you run twice faster. This is an optimization to keep a real-core busy when waiting for memory to be read. This improves the speed by 5 or 10% sometimes, and there is no rule, it depends on many things.
Thank you. Will now know that.
I also wanted to ask if there is a way for automation nodes to be sticked to beat and bar grid like in Cubase. So for example it easy to attach new node exactly on for example first beat of drop. As now to precise attaching I need to zoom a lot to be sure that automation node is properly positioned. This is especially useful for electronic music where is no tempo swing and beatgrid is quantized.
Sorry, no. But snapping envelope points is on the todo list.
For perfect placement of the envelope nodes you could also try to enter the desired position manually in the Inspector window, Clip section.
You can change Value (vertical axis) and Position (horizontal axis) as you need.
Position is displayed in the same time format currently used by the Montage (in my screenshot “Bars and Beats”). With one number selected, you can enter a time via number keys, change the value with the small arrow buttons on the right, or just with the [Up] and [Down] arrow keys on your keyboard ([Left] and [Right] lets you switch between the separated numbers). The 3 icons next to Position decides where the time code starts (in my screenshot “Time Relative to Start of Clip” is selected).
This way you might be able to work very precisely without zooming in too much, on the other hand it probably requires some more overall effort.
