So... 15th March is the release date... next Tuesday. Which means... wait until around Musikmesse until the launch-day bugs are ironed out.



I only got three request and I'd love to see a confirmation

FR1: I hope that "RMS Readout" was implemented in the "Batch Analyzer" (it's only set up to drop ITU-R BS.1770-x specs)

FR2: Surround Editing/Rendering

FR3: better VST3 support (it's still buggy!)



And I'd like to know if the Fraunhofer ProCodec is still part of WL9... I'm way too long with Steinberg to know that features are cut without warning or any further reasons.

I also fear that the "minimum requirements" for WL9 will be a bit through the roof as well. Seeing as Windows 10 is out now (fearing for the loss of Win7), and I don't know what RAM WL9 wants to see as minimum this time around.


Thanks for answering

PG....with the release of Wavelab 9.0 imminent are you able to confirm that it will open Montages of previous versions (WL6, WL7, WL8.5)..... since you know that many of us work with these earlier versions to retain functionalities and workflows which are absent or more difficult in the latest version ?

Yes I can confirm. There is even better WaveLab 6 montage support (some VST plugins could not be imported in WaveLab 7/8).

I would love to see the backup feature return. I still use Wavelab 6 to archive all my client files. Haven't found a compression method more effective than OSQ. Why was the feature ever dropped?

Probably because hard drive space is cheap and there is no point on archiving something into a weird format that maybe only WL can unpack (not certain on that?) That sounds dangerous to me to be honest.

All my client files are BC WAV and backed up in three locations. No chance of not being able to read the files or worrying about an app disappearing from the market - along with the only way to decompress the files.

I also personally wouldn't use a bundled file archiver. When a project is done I simply back up the folder for each project on a hard disk and mirror that with Carbon Copy Cloner and the disks are kept in two different locations.

Even if WaveLab is one day not existent, I still have access to all the assets in a generic way to work from.

I could see using the archiver if backing up to DVD-R (maybe) but those days are long gone.

I understand both of your points, but I have Wavelab backups going back to 2002 with hundreds of clients and already have a workflow that works. I could always dream that it comes back better than before:-)

Understood. But I highly doubt that item is top of mind for WL9.

To be honest - I have been a user for 10 years and this is the first I have heard of this feature :)

Guess we will see tomorrow - IF the software is actually "released" or just "announced".

This backup feature was removed because:
* It used ZIP, which is limited to 2 GB.
* Some other audio packers such as WavPack, do a better job than OSQ (eg. 32 bit float support)
* Some dedicated archiver like WinRar, are more flexible and powerful.

The nice thing, was the integration inside WaveLab 6.

This being said, the new Project feature of WaveLab 9, might call for an archiving extension in the future...

That is great news for me.... thanks very much PG! Very much looking forward to seeing WL9.

So, I guess no multi-channel developments again. With the amount of surround work that goes on nowadays, there's a real danger of falling out of step with the marketplace, I fear.

The rest looks very pretty, though. I'll be trying it out later today.

This is very welcome news...thank you PG !

Can you give any indication whether there will be any Steinberg-produced WL9 tutorial videos produced, to introduce users to the new features and to suggest some possible ways of integrating these into our workflow processes ? I know there is no single 'standardized' way of using Wavelab, but there is still room for a moving picture to tell more than 1000 words in a .PDF manual !

I believe that a series of such videos could offset many of the questions fielded here...and I know that Steinberg has produced some of these previously....but there can never be too many instructional videos !

If there was a third party video author similar to, for example, Kenny Gioia with his REAPER tutorials, it would be a big help....eg: http://www.kennymania.com/free-videos/ It's arguable that many Wavelab users are 'beyond' the requirement for tutorials such as these, but I would certainly find them helpful....at least for integrating WL9's new functions ?
