Introducing the most comprehensive and intuitive feature set ever crafted, WaveLab Pro 9 reinvents audio refinement once again. Its redesigned user interface and the new exchange feature allow for faster workflows, while the unique mastering plug-in suite, MasterRig, and its mid/side capabilities push your creative envelope.
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.
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.
Individualize Your WaveLab Experience
This takes customization within WaveLab to a new level: not only can you change the position and size of windows and workspaces according to your personal preferences, now you can also customize the colors. WaveLab Pro 9 delivers three basic display themes: Light, Dark and the all-new Black Theme (available with the update to WaveLab Pro 9.0.20). And it doesn’t stop here! Apart from selecting one of three themes, you can adjust the color of single sections individually, such as for the Audio Editor, the Audio Montage and virtually all meters.
Introducing MasterRig, the most powerful plug-in suite ever developed by Steinberg, WaveLab Pro 9 offers you endless possibilities to master your audio material in the most creative way possible. MasterRig consists of six top-quality effect modules, most of which are available twice, that can be loaded in a chain of up to eight slots. While each module is multiband compatible, the Equalizer, Compressor and Saturator modules also support mid/side processing per band. This gives you access to very specific parts of your audio material to adjust them with surgical accuracy.
MasterRig’s enormous flexibility lets you easily organize your effect chain per drag-and-drop and save your favorite configuration as a scene, allowing you to compare different module combinations quickly.
