WaveLab is an all-in-one solution for high-resolution stereo and multi-channel audio editing, mastering, and CD/DVD burning. But, believe it or not, WaveLab is not just a top-level mastering tool. It also gives you amazing creative options for multimedia, sound design with samplers, radio broadcasts, and computer-telephony applications.

Voxengo CurveEQ, Brickwall Limiter and Tube Compressor for mastering-grade quality
In addition to the multitude of plug-ins that WaveLab offers, you can now add three more to your belt. First is the Voxengo CurveEQ, featuring spectrum matching technology that is right for any mastering engineer. Second, the Brickwall Limiter stops any unwanted peaks in audio signal from passing the threshold, giving you a smooth dynamic range. Finally, the Tube Compressor allows you to both keep your dynamic range in precise control and to colorize the harmonic content of your audio. All of these tools will help to develop your audio into a finished product.
Advanced EBU-compliant loudness metering for broadcast media
Whether you're working on music for media, radio billboards, or any other broadcast audio, WaveLab 8 features advanced loudness metering that ensures compliance with EBU regulations. For an even easier visualization of your amplitude, you can also enter into a zoomable loudness view to visualize all values as a graph. In fact, Seinberg's normalizer tools have been modified to meet the requirements of EBU standards. All of this will help you get your media broadcast-ready!
Speaker management system to switch between multiple monitors
During the mastering process, it is always important to monitor your pre-master 2-mix on various loudspeaker setups to ensure constant quality. Steinberg wanted to make that process easy so that you don't have to purchase a separate switcher for your studio monitors. WaveLab 8 provides you with an integrated speaker management system so that you can A/B your monitors right from the transport. This system allows you to switch between eight different loudspeaker configurations, each with its own individual volume control.
