Re: Making cd for universal use/ as comercials

What we try to explain, is that the problem is not the format or content of the CD, but the media itself. A commercial CD is "printed", not "burnt". It reflects the CD laser in a better way than a self-burn CD. This is why we say, that you could try another CD brand, that has better laser reflection, once burnt by you.
But the physical CD, produced at the factory, won't have problems.

Re: Converting a Montage From 44.1k to Higher [ideas]

There is a hack you could try... if you find this easier:
1) Export your 44.1k montage as a XML file (menu File > Export)
2) Open your XML file in a text editor (not a word processor).
3) Find and replace all the 44100 values with eg. 96000
4) Find all the fields <pos>XXX</pos>, which are sample values to the resampled value. For instance, if there is
<pos>100000</pos>
replace it with:
<pos>217687</pos>

(because 217687 = 100000 * 96000 / 44100).

5) Find and replace the file names in the XML file, to point to the files with the 96000 SR.
6) Save the XML file.
7) Import in WaveLab.

Re: Batch Render regions as MP3s

This is unfortunatley not possible, because when you render a montage with the batch processor, there are less options available than when you render from the Master Section dialog. More exactly, you can only render the montages as a single file, not as multiple files.

The only approaching solution I see would be this one:
1) you render each audio montage as a big wave files with marked regions, using the batch processor. Each one in its own folder.
2) you use the auto split clip (it has a batch mode), to split all these wav files in smaller wav files.
3) you use the batch processor again, to convert all wav files into mp3 files.

That's not so much work actually because each step #1 to #3 is a single big batch step.

Re: How to split 4 mono channels into 2 stereo

It is only one set of files, use the audio montage.
If you have mutiples sets of files, consider doing it with the batch processor in 2 steps:

In your example:
Combine TAKE01_1.WAV and TAKE01_2.WAV, opened as dual mono files, into a new mono file A.
Combine TAKE01_3.WAV and TAKE01_4.WAV, opened as dual mono files, into a new mono file B.

Finally Open A/B as a dual mono file and save them as a stereo file.

The small difficulty is to take care about the naming pattern to recognize dual mono files. Read the doc for this.

Re: Record Meter OVERS indication

@WYCA

With some more testing, I can reproduce what you describe. I remember now this is caused by a change that was introduced after WaveLab 6. In short, now WaveLab only detects real overs > 0 dB.
In WaveLab 6, WaveLab was detecting overs >= 0 dB.
Why this change? Because some peoples complained that 0 dB is not a real over (which is right).
But that also breaks your needs, which are legitimate.

The only way, will be to add an option in the level meter settings.
