I spent the past two weeks ripping my demo tapes from years past into WaveLab 8. They were all regular 2-track stereo cassettes, and now I have a couple dozen 600-700MB files that look like this:
Up to now I’ve only used WaveLab as a (really nice) sample editor. I’m pretty sure it has all the tools I need to easily convert all these giant WAVs into individually processed tracks, but I’m not sure what the best route to take would be. For example:
Should I use the Audio File workspace or the Audio Montage workspace?
Which marker types (if any) would be best for isolating and naming individual songs/regions within the files?
If my goal is to end up with a bunch of individual song files that are normalized for loudness, what’s a productive workflow for getting there?
I am indeed reading the manual, but learning what individual functions do hasn’t yet helped me find the best path for completing this task. Thanks for any tips.
