WAVELAB PRO 10 OR 11 is adding slight fade at beginning of rendering

Using wave lab 10 or 11 pro tested with different interfaces, it seems with certain plugins a few of acustica plugins mainly when I render a file, lets say for example a 4 bar loop, it seems to add a fade on the first kick or intro to a track, and its lower than the rest of the file, tried all buffer settings, tried in main window and in a montage, but if I move the audio so it doesn’t start immediately like a one second pre gap, it renders fine but not always the case, i’m using windows 10, 64 gigs of ram, and i7 processor,
any idea ? I un-checked fade in before playback options also to test,


I really think this is plugin/maker related,
possible to check with other plugins ?
anybody else…

I would write to Acustica and ask them about it. The more people they are aware of using WaveLab and Acustica, the more likely they are to spend time/resources making sure the plugins work correctly in WaveLab.

Yup thanks, doesn’t really happen with other plugins, maybe one or two once in a blue moon but always fixed in updates, I sent acustica a few tickets regarding it, but you know how that goes,

I am running into this same issue with Acustica Azure and Wavelab 11.1. I’m mastering ITB with a half-dozen plugins or so on the clip. When I bypass the Azure plugin it renders fine. I’ve tried lower buffer size down to 256, also starting the audio at around 15 seconds into the montage. The only workaround I have found is loading the plugin chain to the track (instead of the clip). I’m on an older macbook pro atm. Has anyone found a real solution for this yet? Thanks

The real solution has to be taken care of by Acustica. I’ve heard of people doing Acustica with some extra dead space at the start of the actual file so the affected area is just silence, and then trimming things up later but I can’t think of a plugin worth using and doing that kind of workaround for.

Ugh, yeah. Thanks, Justin. I actually just revised my post. I found that copying chain to the track allows me to get a clean export… temporary fix for this project but not quite going to cut it.

Track Effect could work too since the render will start at 0:00 in the montage and not whenever the clip starts. It will likely slow down the render process and make sure there are no other clips on that Montage Track (unless you also want them to have the same processing).

Gonna give that a shot, thanks,
