The new WaveLab Spectrum Editor provides new restoration and editing possibilities, including easy removal of disturbances and unwanted noise. This versatile editor offers high-quality linear phase filters and flexible replacement options. The new "Surgical" mode allows "copy/paste" of either a whole region or the background 'ambience' of that region, as well as the application of any processes to the selection - with full undo and redo functionality.
The wealth of new functions also includes the integration of hardware effect equipment within the mastering process, allowing engineers to combine the next-generation editing facilities in WaveLab 6 with the unmistakable sound of their favourite analogue gear. The enhanced master section now features SmartBypass, a time-saving new facility for assessing how a plug-in alters sound textures by compensating for volume changes induced by the plug-in. Similarly new are a range of quality audio processors including a new sample rate converter and the advanced Dirac time stretching and pitch-shifting algorithm.
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. 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. New metering and monitoring tools including support for renowned mastering engineer Bob Katz' K-System as well as the new loudness distribution window.
