I’m not going to say that Steinberg is doing something wrong, but it seems like there is an opportunity to somehow disseminate and reinforce whatever extra information is necessary for developers to avoid the increasingly “common” issue of their plugins applying a 30ms fade-in on rendered files.
I can recall about 8 developers over the years that have had this problem with their releases. Yes, I get that they probably didn’t test it in Wavelab (so shame on them), but in the end, it harms the end-users trying to do work. I can recall in the last 3 months, 3 developers who have this issue including Softube (which isn’t some small boutique developer), Leapwing and now Mathieu Demange’s RX950.
I would like to encourage whoever at Steinberg is creating the SDK to PLEASE emphasize that Wavelab requires different coding for VST plugins to be compatible.
