I just took a wav file and tried to convert it into Ogg at various settings including:
and Average Bit Rate 256.
Every Ogg created by Wavelab 8 has a click at the start of the file as if the audio was cut off at the begining.
The files also have a longer “pad” or “section of silence” at the begining of the file that isn’t there in the original wav and is also longer than Ogg’s made by SoundGrinder. Additionaly SoundGrinder can make the Oggs at the same settings without any click.
So, PG, I’m sorry to report that the Ogg encoding in Wavelab 8 is in need of a fix.
