WaveLab is Steinberg's fastest editor with VST and DirectX plug-in support, a wealth of mastering, audio montage and CD burning features. This free update extends WaveLab with an wide array of new features and turns WaveLab into a universal professional tool for audio editing and mastering.

New features in 4.01 includes scripting support and can be used to automate audio editing, format and batch processing, recording and playback. This process uses an API, or Application Programming Interface, that acts as a "remote control" for WaveLab, allowing it to be fused into larger audio network systems. WaveLab now supports the AES 31 format, allowing it to import Nuendo 2.0 projects into a new Audio Montage. WaveLab 4.01 also features export in the AES 31 format. Markers created in Nuendo 2.0 are recognized using their names and assigned to CD markers. The new Audio Error Detection and Correction tool probes audio files for errors such as clicks. These are identified with WaveLab markers and can be corrected either manually or automatically. Additionally, WaveLab can now save to all popular formats from any environment. The MUSICAM (MP2) format used widely in radio and television broadcasts is now supported directly within WaveLab. Audio CDs can be imported and saved straight in the MUSICAM format; RIFF files can now also be created. These have a .WAV ending and are compatible with Broadcast .WAV format. WaveLab now also supports Windows Media 9 and Ogg Vorbis formats. CD Text is now also supported when importing CDs. A CD can now also be imported in one single step, including all pauses and index markings. Audio CD image files can now be compared to one another, allowing burned CDs to be compared directly with the original image file to find any CD burning errors.

WaveLab 4.01 is available now for $599.99 MSRP. A free update for all WaveLab 4.x users can be downloaded at For more product announcements, visit
