New Features in WaveLab 6
Version 6 provides an all new Spectrum Editor with sonogram view to remove disturbances and unwanted noise in the frequency domain. The extremely versatile editor offers high quality linear-phase filters and flexible replacement options. Its surgical mode is dedicated to audio correction and allows the user to Copy and Paste the selection or the ‘ambience’ of that selection to another place in the time/frequency domain, or applies some specific processes to the selection with full undo and redo functionality.
DIRAC Time Stretching and Pitch Shifting
DIRAC is one of the most advanced algorithm for the manipulation of audio material available on the market today. DIRAC Time Stretching and Pitch Shifting provide excellent quality, high performance and perfect fidelity.
The enhanced master section now features SmartBypass, a time-saving new facility for assessing how a plug-in alters sound textures by compensating for loudness changes induced by the plug-in. Master Section presets can now be associated and stored independently within each audio file or an Audio Montage.
New Audio Processors
New set of audio processors including Crystal Resampler, a professional sample rate converter providing exceptional transparency and preservation of the frequency content up to 384 kHz.
The powerful Audio Montage’s clip handling and editing capability has been further extended to include a range of new functions such as the new fade editing features which allow for even more flexible editing of fades, powerful batch processing and advanced import and export of files.
Audio File Handling
Extended audio file handling and manipulation system including file sizes bigger than 2 GB, improved performance and batch renaming
WaveLab 6 has many new tools with a strong focus on psycho-acoustic treatment and monitoring of the audio signal. K-System metering, a very smart loudness corrected bypass tool, a loudness normalizer and a loudness distribution display support the user to achieve the best sounding results.
WaveLab 6 integrates seamlessly into your existing studio environment, including full integration of outboard gear. External hardware effect units can be used like plug-ins in the master section. WaveLab 6 also now features remote controller support via MIDI, so that many WaveLab features can now be used even more intuitively through a tactile control surface, further speeding up workflow.
