thank you very much. As you might have seen in the trailer, WaveLab comes in a (almost completely)
new layout, which is faster and more accessible than previous Wavelab versions. It comes with new
mastering functionality, mighty new plug-ins, new ways to collaborate with Cubase/Nuendo and more.

The release is still a few weeks away as we are still in beta phase. We will prepare for shipping sometime
soon. More detailled information on the feature set will be available in a few weeks.

Thanks,
Timo
Hi Timo,

Would it be possible to upgrade from 8.5 to a boxed version of 9?

and will 9 include a printed manual?

i would pay extra for a printed manual as from the teaser video things looked to have changed alot.
Hello,

we will only have download updates for 8.5 to 9 and no printed manual. However, with that new interface you
will probably need to look into the manual less often ;-)

Thanks,
Timo

Thanks Timo,

So the big question is when will it be ready and how much will the upgrade price cost from 8.5?

Thanks

What's about the grace-period time?
I bought Wavelab 8.5 last week on thomann.de and now I'm afraid that I won't be allowed to update via grace-period. :cry: :cry: :cry: :cry:

Buying time is not relevant for grace period, but the moment of activation of the license. So if not activated yet, I'd suggest you wait until more is clear about the grace period.

What that retailer is offering appears to be WaveLab 8 with (probably) a voucher for an upgrade to 8.5 (or activation code on a card in the box). I would be careful about such offers -- Thomann, in this case, are a reputable retailer but sometimes it's not clear why they do these offers, possibly just to get rid of old (physical) stock.

I am almost certain that it is activation date dependent. Did you activate v8 after the v8.5 grace period has started? You get v.8.5. Simple as that. I would guess that you'll end up with v9 if you activate it during/after v9's grace period as well.

Yes, it is dependent on the date of activation but I'd still be careful. The box might contain an activation code for WaveLab 8.0 only, and if activated after the start of the grace period for WaveLab 8.5 (i.e. today) then the user would be entitled to a grace-period free update to WaveLab 8.5, but possibly not to WaveLab 9.0.

The best thing would be to clarify from Thomann exactly what's in the box, then raise a support ticket with Steinberg to clarify the position with regard to the grace period and whether you'd be entitled to a grace period update to 9.0.

So, I've called Thomann and they said, that a WaveLab 8.5 License comes within the box, but only an installation DVD for 8.0. The DVD for 8.5 has to be downloaded at steinberg.net.
So I hope it will be correct!

So, don't activate the license until more is known about the grace period for WL Pro 9!

Will there still only be two versions? Elements is a bit too limited and the full version contains lots of high end features that aren't needed for basic mastering. I'd love to see a third "Artist" version.

This Artist version should include the complete CD authoring features from the full version, 8 plug-in slots, The Pro dithering plug-ins *, EBU-compliant loudness metering, basic batch conversion and multiple monitor selection options, etc. It could dispense with Spectrum Editing and other high-end features (more suitable for audio restoration and forensics).

Steinberg has long falsely claimed, in the manual, that WaveLab elements can use installed Cubase plug-ins. Perhaps it's time live up to this claim?

"Cubase Artist" has become very popular. I convinced that "WavLab Artist" will aswell.

Patiently waiting for more information. Steinberg is great at wetting people's appetites and then not following up.

Let's see a REAL release date PLEASE. No more words like SPRING or SOON or SHORTLY.

It cannot be that hard to just pick a date and be done with it UNLESS there are problems that are still being "fixed". Lets hope NOT.

Hi,

will WL 9 reintroduce the highly missed audio database or at least the media bay?!
We use WL to make sound collages and still use WL6 for browsing our sound archive. But the clock is ticking and WL6 is not supported any more and is not stable on W7 64bit.
Never understand why it was dropped in WL7. It would be even useful for maintaining different versions at mastering!?

Regards,

Christian

Steinberg marketing is notorious for this kind of hype. They think that sticking some vague information out there is going to generate some sort of excitement. While that worked fine in 2005 but in 2016 - it's about being on task and actually delivering a WORKING product straight up.

And let's not forget - it's an audio editor. Not exactly a piece of software that has competition or needs to get the masses talking.

They would be better off saying nothing at all until they have shipping code ready to go. Then release it with NO pre-hype announcement and have an actual working product delivered to the customer base.

I get more wayyyyy more excited when an update to product I use that suddenly appears with no warning and actually works - instead of one that has been hyped for months and ends up being a bugfest.

The folks at Spectrasonics now take this tact and it keeps the anticipation high because they tell you nothing about anything. This also frees them up to do the work instead of coding crap to make a release date.

I use WL6 regularly on a Win7 64bit laptop and it's fine and perfectly stable, even if not officially supported

It's probably way too late for Feature Requests now, and too early (?) to expect feature confirmation, but could Timo or PG comment on whether anything resembling Source Destination (4 Point) Editing is possible or facilitated in WL9, as used in Pyramix or Sequoia ?

WL users have been able to simulate some of the key functions of S-D editing using tiled Montages....hopefully at least this will still be possible in WL9 ? To my way of thinking, this crucial editing tool would be required before Steinberg is able to permit themselves the title of "Pro" added to the '9' !

There is no problem and no delay on the original schedule... just be a bit more patient for the logistics to take place.

It is officially spring

In meteorology for the Northern hemisphere, spring begins on March 01, 2016. It is also called the beginning of meteorological spring. The meteorological seasons are divided according to the calendar months. Spring months are March, April and May.

Spring is one of the four conventional temperate seasons following winter and preceding summer. Spring is seen as a time of growth, renewal, of new life (both plant and animal) being born. The term is also used more generally as a metaphor for the start of better times, as in the Prague Spring.

Unstable weather may more often occur during spring, when warm air begins on occasions to invade from lower latitudes, while cold air is still pushing on occasions from the Polar regions.(With material from: Wikipedia)


When is Beginning of meteorological spring?
Tuesday, the 1st of March 2016

This text has been taken from www.cute-calendar.com

Where is the beef??? or more correctly where is the announcement of when this will be released? Steinberg said spring...
