Issue with obtaining Grace Period upgrade WL8.5

I followed the instructions on this link

it states....
WaveLab 8 activation before the official release of WaveLab 8.5.....
Start the eLicenser Control Center application, found under Start/Programs/eLicenser on a Windows PC or in the Applications folder of Mac OS X. Click on the "Maintenance" button. Your license will then be replaced by a WaveLab 8.5 license and the Steinberg Grace Period site will be opened.

Well the grace period website never opened.
So I went to this page.....
and had it check for my upgrade status. From there is showed me a download link.

hope this helps others!

Re: Session Interchange

does anyone use the AES-31 for anything?
We would be DEAD (or at least wasting several hours per day) if we did not have AES31 import-export available.

The average length of our production is 6-15 seconds long. Average order by client=12 cuts, with 5-8 mixes per cut = 96 mixes per client. We record and mix in Nuendo, export mixes via AES31. Import AES31 into Wavelab. Do this 2 to 3 times per day (we can produce several clients per day)

Why AES31?
If you try to cut and paste, or AAF, OMF, WAV import. The mixes would be imported in Alphabetical order, not mix order. If you had an edit between 2 mixes, WL would create 2 separate mixes out of it. You would spend quite a bit of time ordering your mixes the way you intended.

With AES31, it imports the mixes in the correct order, treats edits properly AND it imports markers that give us yet MORE information. AND with AES31 you are not Copying files (creating more unneeded drive usage) you are simply creating a audio decision list (no bulky audio files) just pointers on where to access the files.

And all of this great benefit takes 10 seconds to export in Nuendo, and 10 seconds to import into Wavelab.

I feel like I have only scratched the surface of why AES31 is useful to us, and perhaps explained it badly, but .......
Time saver, labor saver, Priceless !!!!!

Yes people out there use this feature.

Re: Audio file renaming

With the file selected, use "Find in Pool" . This will open the pool window. Use the "rename" shortcut ). This brings up the rename dialog box with tons of options.

you can save a step and access it from the project window too, the key command is under "Extended Edit" and it's called "Rename Objects". John.

I would like to note that while each method works, one method displays things slightly different than the other.

If you have a file that is named "Original" and you want to add (for example) a prefix to the file's name in the rename dialog box....

using Neil's method (my favored way) you get these results.... "New Original"

using John's method you get these results.... "New (Original)" with the original name in brackets.

so the method you use depends upon how you want the file names displayed.

I just wrote a macro that works... using these commands....
1. Audio - Find selected in pool
2. Extended Edit - Rename Objects
with this macro you can rename using a singles key command.
note: this will open the pool and leave it open

But I found out that if you add a 3rd key command....
3. Project - Open Pool
Then once you enter your rename parameters and hit Enter in the rename dialog box
the pool will close. :!: :!: :!:

See what you guys think of that :D

Re: Asio time usage overload - please help!

Hello, i am using cubase 5.1. 32bt on a 64bit windows 7 system.

My bet is that you have to download the 5.3 update and install and the 5.5. This is in my opinion is the most stable update.

Be sure to download 64 Bit versions since you have 64 Bit Operating System and install as 64 Bit if does ask you.

Kon, your present setup shows 32 bit Cubase install, you will be able to access more of your memory using the 64bit version, BUT if you are using 32 bit plugins and change to 64bit Cubase, you open up a new issue of getting your 32 bit plugs working with 64 bit Cubase. TShepo may be correct that 5.5 is more stable, but for you his suggestion of the 64bit version may not be the best choice for you.
