Speeding up your workflow dramatically

WaveLab Pro 9 introduces a revolutionary new user experience that allows for an incomparably fast and convenient workflow. The new single-window interface contains a central tab area, incorporating the most often used functions and the waveform display. The tool windows above provide all metering displays, error correction functions, markers and more. The renowned master section also comes in a new layout and includes additional options. WaveLab Pro 9 also lets you adapt the layout to your individual needs by offering an easy-to-use new docking system, including settings for window transparency and window sliding behavior.

The ribbon and tab layout

The central area of WaveLab is based on a ribbon layout consisting of several individual tabs for the most often used WaveLab editing and mastering functions, such as View, Edit, Fades, Analysis, Render and more. All tabs are context sensitive and only appear dynamically. Switching between the different tabs is a breeze, as the entire ribbon bar is located close to the waveform.

Another advantage of the ribbon bar lies in its ability to provide fixed views of all functions. This way, the tools you’re working with are always visible in contrast to drop-down menus in older program layouts. The ribbon bar also includes the new File tab menu, grouping all functions together for setting up the project, as well as exporting audio material in different formats.

Organizing your project

WaveLab Pro 9 also introduces a new project concept based on File Groups. This allows you to individually group a bunch of single audio files and the resulting Audio Montage (into which the single files are then composed) in one framework — the File Group. In order to keep track of even the largest mastering projects, the new Project Manager displays your entire project structure in tree form, including File Groups and the audio files and Audio Montages they contain.

Redesigned Master Section

The renowned Master Section has received a major overhaul. The effect area has been expanded to twelve slots, providing highest flexibility for creating your individual plug-in mastering chain. The channel processing configuration can be determined for all plug-ins individually, including mid/side processing. This way, you can choose between your favorite plug-ins to process a stereo, mono or M/S configuration. Also the entire audio channel monitoring has been extended by M/S metering functions. The new Resampler provides direct access when changing the playback to a different sample rate.

New docking system

Functional layout is an important factor when working with software on a daily basis. WaveLab Pro 9 introduces a new multi-monitor friendly window docking system that allows for more flexible and easy window handling than ever before. WaveLab automatically suggests where you can dock-in a floating window by showing little arrows. Just drag a window to one of these areas to dock it at your chosen location. The WaveLab Control window has also been updated to four instances.

Master Section: New listening insights and processing options

How about listening to the mid or side signal separately to check the inherent quality of these parts? Nothing could be simpler than that. WaveLab Pro 9 adds a function to choose between the mid and side signal, providing you with completely new insights into the mix. Best of all, you can insert any of your favorite plug-ins into the Master Section effects rack and choose whether they should only process the mid or side signal, the L/R channels or the whole stereo track.

Clip, track and output effects

Bringing the quality of your effect mastering to a never-before experienced level, WaveLab Pro 9 lets you use any of your favorite plug-ins to process the mid or side signal as a clip, track or output effect via the effects section in the WaveLab tool windows. Simply choose which part of the signal you want to process and your plug-in is applied only to this defined part.

M/S compatible MasterRig plug-in suite

MasterRig’s new eight-band EQ, the four-band Dynamic EQ as well as the four-band Compressor and Saturator are completely M/S compatible, allowing you to determine which part of the signal should be affected by the plug-ins.

File tab: Your central WaveLab hub

WaveLab Pro 9 introduces a new File tab that acts as the central hub for creating or opening an Audio Montage, Audio Editor, Batch Processor, Podcast, Audio CD or DVD. What’s more, the File tab contains all rendering, import and export functions, important for working with DDPs, XMLs, CD cue sheets and more. You will also find all settings to configure WaveLab to your individual needs conveniently grouped under the Preferences tab.

Startup dialog

Creating a new project or browsing for an existing one is now easier and faster than ever with WaveLab’s new Startup dialog. When starting WaveLab Pro 9 you can choose to create a new, empty project or start with a template designed by you. You can also browse quickly and comfortably for existing projects or files you want to work on.

Project Manager

Large projects often result in complex structures that need to be managed in a convenient, intuitive way. WaveLab Pro 9 helps you keep your audio files and audio montages organized by introducing Project Manager. The Project Manager provides a tree structure that lets you instantly see which files belong to which file group, how they are named and if they have been modified. You can even drag and drop files from the project manager into an Audio Montage or open a new Audio Editor.
