Wavelab 4.0 / Sound Forge
« on: October 07, 2002, 11:08:38 PM »
Ok, I'm just a little currious. I've been around Sound Forge for a while, but I am now hearing about Wavelab. I'm currious as to what some positives of using Wavelab would be.

If you have used Wavelab before, please fill me in as to any positive/negative aspects of the program

I think the main reason so many people are using wavelab 4.0 is for the dithering algorithm it uses.  It uses the UV22HR (i think)  apgoee algorithm, good stuff IMO.  Anyone else care to add anything?

Ok, one more question.

I'm using a Sony VAIO PCG-SRX87, it has a 20GD HD, Wavelab is a larger program, would it be worth using that extra space, or just get Wavelab, and maybe get an optional external HD

I'm still new to Laptop recording, so any and all info is very, very helpful

you should be fine with 20 gigs, wavelab isn't *that* big.  Although, having an external harddrive(s) never hurt anyone ;).

I haven't used Sound Forge 6.0, and never developed proficiency with 5.0 before getting very frustrated with it and cecoming enamored with Wavelab.  Perhaps, it was because Don Pearson of UltraSound, made the recommedation, and everything he recommends just seems to be a good thing.  

My experience has been rock solid reliability, liking the excellent metering in the field, the ease of naming files from within the software, and especially the "split file" mode which creates a new file when the 2GB file size limit is drawing near.  To me this is important because 24/96 stereo consumes 2gB in one hour and it is nice not to have to babysit the equipment as if I were about to have to flip a cassette (remember those things?).

Further, for post production/mastering, all effects are in realtime.  You can immediately hear the results of the eq (nice parametric with variable Q and shelving filters), compressors, etc...  As well, it is VERY easy to insert PNO's and set up a final CD burn through Wavelab.  It's an all in one system that doesn't require the use of any other software to complete the process.

If you have more questions, details are available through our website or you can email me.  nutter@sonicsense.com

Happy Recording,

Marc

i have been using soundforge 5.0 for over a year now. i just *upgraded* to wavelab and instantly found it to be far superior to soundforge IMO.

cayman - what features do you find superior?  Is it just overall ease of use?  Please explain.

I was a SF user and now am a Wavelab user...

I'm still having a few issues, but wavelab is intense.  It's a very powerful tool.

Better monitoring for sure, more options to manipulate the files, way better resampling conversions...

Jonny, did you post over at oade about the 2 gig file limit ? If so, can you fill me in on how to get around this with wavelab ? I finally am using wavelab now, but I always get freaked once I hit about 2 and a half hours(at 16/44.1)

Yah that was my post.  I'm still figuring out Wavelab (its very very powerful).  Here is how that is fixed-- when you click record there is one of the check boxes that says split function or something to that effect.  It needs to be clicked.  Then you go to settings and I have mine set now at 690 MB so I can burn the files to CD w/o mastering them and just set em aside if I need to.  This will often be the case till I get either a self powered Firewire drive or a bigger HD for my pixbook.

good call on the having wavelab split at 690 megs...that one didn't cross my mind.

Also, Jonny - what size HD do you have in your pixbook?  Is it the stock 12 gig c1vn drive?  If so, I'd make my first priority getting *at least* a 30 gig drive in there.

Yah I have the stock 12 gig drive.  Before I put in another drive I'm trying to look at all my options here.  From what I hear Maudio makes a firewire drive that can be battery powered... if I can go with a 60 or bigger drive I'd rather do that then upgrading the other drive.

I know you can get a 40 gig drive for the pix books right now.  A few months ago there were 60 gig drives avaliable in japan, not sure if they're avaliable here yet.  If they're not they will be soon.  

As for firewire drives...you can power any of 'em in the field if you're willing to carry another SLA...

D

p.s.  You got a link to the M-Audio firewire drive??
