Hello forum, first post here.
I’m trialing Wavelab Pro 9.5 and love most things about it. Considering switching to it in my mastering studio.
I run into a few problems though, maybe someone can help me:
I cannot seem to resize plugins like I can in other DAWs. For example the newer Fabfilter plugins, they are normally freely resizable. Also iZotope Insight, I can drag the window and more grey area will appear but the plugin UI stays the same size. Is there an option somewhere?
I can’t figure out how to make plugins receive midi. There’s the remote control mode. I set a remote device (MIDI controller) in the preferences but it still says ‘This plug-in is not associated with a remote control’ and it won’t map controls. I’ve tried mapping to plugin custom parameters in the preferences but to no avail… How does this work? The manual basically says it should just work.
When the external gear plugin is on the master section and I bypass the entire master section, it still sends audio out to my analog chain… I don’t want that, I mean, come on at least give me an option to choose. I don’t just want to bypass the plugin I want it to disable. Am I missing something here…?
I kinda like smart bypass (make it work with LUFS instead of RMS though, feature request!) but is there no way to actually hear the original unaltered audio? It says original audio but actually includes clip effects (and perhaps track, haven’t tested that). Really nice option but pretty much useless this way if it only works on the master section…
I’m really liking Wavelab but these are some serious obstacles in the way of switching for me…
