New in WaveLab 5: DVD Audio
mastering and authoring
the perfect all in one solution
The ever-growing demand for high
resolution audio and surround music
productions is in turn placing ever more
demands on producers. In only a few
short years, DVD Audio has established
itself as the standard format for multichannel uncompressed audio with video,
text and DVD ROM content. WaveLab
5 lets you turn a CD mastering project
into a DVD Audio project with one single
mouse click. WaveLab 5 is the first audio
editing application that supports DVD
Audio authoring as well as of powerful
CD mastering and burning features.
WaveLab 5 unites capabilities such as
graphical editing and processing with
full DVD Audio authoring, including
graphic menus, DVD text and even
import and burning of DVD video
Audio editing in real-time
Audio editing includes a broad range of
tasks, which often requires the use of
several software tools. The powerful and
versatile WaveLab 5 does the work of
a dozen other programs in one
outstanding application. WaveLab 5
offers sample-accurate stereo or multichannel audio editing combined with
powerful DSP effects for sound design.
Additionally, WaveLab 5 also supports
many common surround formats with
up to eight channels, as well as surround
plug-ins such as the Steinberg Surround
Edition. And if that wasn’t enough,
WaveLab also features non-destructive
real-time fades and crossfades, clip- and
t r a ck - b a s e d e f f e c t s , u n l i m i t e d
Undo/Redo, and a powerful set of batch
processing features. This range of
impressive features makes WaveLab
stand out from the crowd.
CD Mastering – All For One
CD mastering is more than getting the
maximum loudness out of music tracks
and putting them in the right order. A
mastering studio adjusts a range of
qualities of many different audio tracks,
for example volume, EQ and the spatial
qualities of a track, forming them into
one homogenous sonic entity that can
be put together onto the same CD. In
some cases, tracks even have to
repaired. Sometimes the engineer also
has to create complex crossfades
between songs or recordings. WaveLab
5 supports you every step of the way,
with an efficient set of tools that take
the hassle out of professional mastering,
leading you through each stage of the
process, from audio track montage,
audio editing, building first class effects
and crossfades all the way through to
exact placement of CD markers and PQ
editing. WaveLab 5 then creates a CD
image file, burns that onto CD and
compares the final CD with the Master
image, making any CD burning errors
visible and allowing the engineer to
correct them. WaveLab 5 can also create
color CD covers and labels from within
the project itself.
See for yourself:
from audio to video
The new ”smart” video thumbnail track
makes WaveLab 5 the perfect tool for
editing audio for video. WaveLab 5 offers
more possibilities for detailed, accurate
audio editing than ordinary video editing
software. WaveLab 5 offers a whole
range of editing capabilities to build a
powerful and impressive sonic
experience, from trimming and editing
audio clips to complex sound design
tasks. WaveLab 5 is a comprehensive
audio editing solution, tailored to
producing sound effects, background
loops, crystal-clear dialogs, or using the
renowned Audio Montage features,
complex multitrack projects. And now
that WaveLab 5 offers up to 8 audio
channels, WaveLab has become the
ideal mastering tool for soundtracks in
all common surround formats, including
5.1 and 7.1. With integration of
functions such as Xsend and Xreceive,
WaveLab 5 can be integrated seamlessly
in to many video applications such as
Pinnacle Liquid Edition.
The Audio Montage in WaveLab 5 now offers full surround support, picture and text tracks for DVD-Audio authoring and a video thumbnail track. WaveLab
users will find the DVD Audio capabilities extremely easy to use as the additional and DVD-A – specific features are seamlessly integrated in WaveLab
5’s familiar user interface.
1996 saw the first chapter in the
long and distinguished story of
WaveLab. Since then, WaveLab has
been continually developed, and
has become a leading application
in digital audio editing.
With version 5, WaveLab can once
again claim to be the standard
which other applications have to
measure themselves by.
WaveLab 5 is probably the only allin-one solution for high resolution
stereo and multi-channel audio
editing, mastering, CD/DVD burning
and for complete CD or DVD Audio
production in outstanding audio
New extended feature set
The uses WaveLab is put to are just as
multifaceted as the WaveLab feature
set. That’s why WaveLab is found in top
flight audio facilities as well as in project
studios. WaveLab is not just a top level
mastering tool, offers capabilities ideal
for multimedia, and sound design with
samplers or radio broadcast and
computer telephony applications.
Besides full support for video still images, slideshow transitions, real-time
and static text, WaveLab5 also includes a full-featured menu graphics
creator. The graphics editor works hand in hand with the project and Audio
Montage. Menu background templates are included.
The expanded Master Section supports surround plug-ins such
as the optional eight-channel Steinberg Surround Edition plugin suite. The Q equalizer plug-in and Multiband Compressor are
just two of the pro quality plug-ins included in WaveLab 5.
The WaveLab 5 metering toos give you a detailed view of your
audio, with support for up to 8 audio channels, including the FFT,
Level and Spectrum Meter tools illustrated here.
