Will there still only be two versions? Elements is a bit too limited and the full version contains lots of high end features that aren’t needed for basic mastering. I’d love to see a third “Artist” version.
This Artist version should include the complete CD authoring features from the full version, 8 plug-in slots, The Pro dithering plug-ins *, EBU-compliant loudness metering, basic batch conversion and multiple monitor selection options, etc. It could dispense with Spectrum Editing and other high-end features (more suitable for audio restoration and forensics).
Steinberg has long falsely claimed, in the manual, that WaveLab elements can use installed Cubase plug-ins. Perhaps it’s time live up to this claim?
“Cubase Artist” has become very popular. I convinced that “WavLab Artist” will aswell.
