New Steinberg WaveLab Pro 11 Audio Editing & Mastering Software MAC/PC (Download/Activation Card)

Sale
Original price $699.99
Current price $472.00
SKU 91042

ALL NEW FEATURES
With significant new features for stem mastering, multitrack editing, plug-in parameter automation and podcast production, WaveLab 11 has the concept of “multi” running throughout it. With improved multi-channel file handling, multiple track sub-lanes and analysis meters, multi-core processing and more, WaveLab further enhances its status as the true art of mastering.

Multi-channel interleaved support
WaveLab 11 introduces extended support for multi-channel interleaved files and, for the first time, multi-channel interleaved editing in the Audio Editor. Supporting up to 22.2 surround layouts of WAV files (including Ambisonics files for pre-authoring purposes), a multi-channel file can be opened, edited and saved like any other set of mono/stereo files. Featuring comprehensive controls to make precise editing easier, it’s also possible for external editors to work on selected channels only. The detailed new selection options include highly flexible frequency-domain selection in the Spectrum Editor. In the Audio Montage, automatic splitting of multi-channel audio files into mono or stereo clusters makes it fast to import a large multi-channel file. This also allows plug-ins to process channel clusters independently of one another.

Track Groups for multitrack/stems workflows
Track Groups comprise audio tracks which are routed to a group bus, before the signal continues through the Montage output and then Master sections. This provides an additional summing stage with effects plug-ins, gain and pan controls. Track Groups are especially useful for stem mastering and, alongside Track Lanes, another way to apply a common track group effect chain to stem mastering projects.
Track Groups can be created by selecting tracks from a corresponding Group Channel. Using the Track Group Editor, tracks and track groups can be named/renamed, have colors assigned and moved per drag and drop.




Track Lanes for multitrack/stems workflows
Track Lanes is a flexible new feature that can divide an audio track into eight sub lanes, each lane hosting audio clips, a facility especially useful when working with mix stems inside the Montage. As well as clip effects, track effects can be applied to all clips, providing a final processing chain for all stems on the track. Track Lanes can also be used for sound design tasks like assembling, editing and processing sound effects from layered clips. Each Track Lane features comprehensive controls for selection, solo/mute, fold/unfold, lanes can be converted to tracks, selected tracks can be merged as lanes and more.





Parameter automation with clip envelopes
You can now use clip envelopes to automate the parameters of VST 3 plug-ins. Along with the volume, pan and effect wet/dry parameters, clip envelopes are managed from the new Automation Envelope panel in the Inspector window. Envelopes can be assigned to parameters by right-clicking on the parameter, single envelope points can be text edited, envelopes can be turned on/off and their visibility is easily managed, individually or globally.





SuperVision analyzer
As well as the WaveLab analysis meter, WaveLab 11 features a new professional analysis tool, SuperVision. SuperVision is a fully customizable, multi-meter audio analyzer, with 27 different modules that can be applied in up to nine module slots for level, spectral, phase and waveform analysis. It allows the creation of a fully customized layout for a supremely accurate visual picture of any audio project. Multiple instances can be opened to monitor the audio signal at different stages.



New VST 3 effects plug-ins
WaveLab 11 includes a range of new VST 3 effects plug-ins, delivering even greater possibilities for the most surgically precise sound-shaping.

Additional new features
Time is always precious in the professional audio business, so WaveLab includes many time-saving features and workflow enhancements to help you create content as quickly and efficiently as possible.




Replacing audio in video
In WaveLab 11, part or all the audio of a video file can be replaced with the audio from another track. The original audio can also be refined and replaced with an edited version, without changing the video quality. Importing, editing and rendering are straightforward. (It is recommended that any video editing should be completed in a dedicated video application before refining the audio in WaveLab).


Podcast host service support
WaveLab 11 comes with the same podcast features as the dedicated WaveLab Cast. They include the direct upload of podcasts to five popular podcast hosts: Buzzsprout, Castro, PodBean, SoundCloud and Spreaker. For more detailed information on these features, please visit the WaveLab Cast product page.




Audio ducking
WaveLab 11 includes simplified ducking — using an audio track to control the volume of a different one. The ducking controls on an Audio Montage track allow one or more modulator tracks to control the ducked track. Straightforward parameters include Voice Threshold (triggers the Ducker), Music Attenuation (the level reduction on the ducked track), fade out/in times/profiles and how long the volume on the ducked track is reduced for.


New Clean and Enhance track inspector sections
The Track Inspector adds two new sections with specialized channel strips for real-time audio processing, radically simplifying the enhancement of audio tracks with straightforward “one knob” controls. Alongside the familiar Insert Effects and Gain and Pan sections, the new Clean and Enhance sections provide very quick and easy ways of cleaning up and improving the quality of audio recordings.




Audio montage performance boost
WaveLab Pro now supports multi-core processing for audio montages, increasing the processing performance of montages with multiple tracks, clips, and effects. This is especially noticeable when working with multiple tracks or/and overlapping clips, for instance when stem mastering.
It is now also possible to suspend the processing of track plug-ins if their input signal is detected as silent, conserving CPU resources.


New Start-Up Assistant
The Start-Up Assistant has been revised and divided into Recent and Templates sections, which can be filtered by file types. An additional search field allows you filtering by name, using text input.




Revised external FX plug-in window
The external FX plug-in window has been overhauled with level meters for the input and output gain sections to avoid audio clipping. An image of the external device can also be added for reference.


VST plug-in handling features
Improvements to VST 2 and VST 3 plug-in handling include each instance now having its own, independent undo/redo history; switching between two independent plug-in parameter sets for easy comparison of different settings; saving plug-in parameter settings as a custom default preset and seperate controls for Bypass Effect and Listen to Effect Signal Only in the Master Section plug-in header.



WORKFLOW, PERFORMANCE AND EDITING IMPROVEMENTS


New track header context menu
To improve visibility and accessibility in the track header,the menu has been divided into four categories: Track, Lanes, Track Groups and Options.

Title Navigator
The Title Navigator on the track list has been created to scroll to the title in the time domain, as well the track range, allowing easier navigation among titles within the Montage space. This is especially useful when titles are composed of stems (lanes or tracks).

Copy clips to tracks without plug-ins and envelope settings
When copying clips to other tracks, there is now the option to copy them without any of the clip plug-ins and clip envelope settings.

Audio file import options
When dropping a stereo file on a mono track, options are now available to automatically create a stereo track or two mono tracks, or create a mono track with two lanes. When dropping a mono audio file on a stereo track, the option is to automatically create a mono track.

Increased slots for Montage inspector
For consistency with the amount of insert slots in the Master Section, those in the Montage inspector for all stages — Clips/Tracks/Groups and Montage Output — have been increased from 10 to 16.

Increased playback processing slots
The number of insert slots for the Playback Processing section in the Master Section has been increased from three to five.

Marker creation dialog with comment field
