For many, WaveLab from Steinberg is the only way to edit audio on the PC. I must confess, that many of the mp3 demos you hear right here on Sonic State have been sorted out in WaveLab. In keeping with Steinbergs "20 Years of Revolution" celebration this year, WaveLab gets it's own mini coup. Version 5 now brings you full multi-channel surround support and DVD Audio mastering and authoring. WaveLab 5 encompasses a full set of DVD Audio mastering and authoring tools. Among the new capabilities included is support for up to eight audio channels throughout the entire signal chain for recording, editing, processing and mastering. The DVD Audio burning capabilities also include video data; WaveLab 5 also offers DVD Audio extraction, conversion, and archiving. More DVD Audio-specific features include an extensive DVD Audio authoring toolset, including Playlist editing, on-screen video menu design, picture slide shows, and DVD text. The range of new capabilities encompasses not only DVD Audio, but aims to offer additional capabilities within the stereo and multi-channel audio domain. A new "Smart" Video Thumbnail Track for editing audio for video is included, as is support for trackbased insert effects, multi-channel metering, and support for Steinberg Surround Edition plug-ins. "We're very proud of WaveLab 5, as it is not only the first and only application currently available to support both CD-Audio and DVD Audio formats within a unified user interface, but also to combine all aspects of stereo and multi-channel high-resolution audio editing, processing, mastering and DVD-Audio authoring and burning,"
commented Arnd Kaiser, Steinberg's Senior Product Manager for Music Technology. WaveLab 5 will ship to Steinberg resellers from 19th April, 2004, and will cost €699.00
