Steinberg Wavelab 5 Shipping

WaveLab 5, one of the leading audio editors, is now shipping worldwide. The award-winning audio editing and mastering software reaches version 5 and offers new DVD Audio capabilities.

Steinberg Media Technologies GmbH has announced that the latest version of its award-winning WaveLab audio editing and mastering application is now shipping to resellers worldwide. Offering full multi-channel surround support, a video track and DVD Audio mastering and authoring, WaveLab 5 will cost €699.00.

One of the major new releases in Steinberg’s 20th anniversary year, WaveLab 5 now encompasses a full set of DVD Audio mastering and authoring tools, making WaveLab 5 the first and currently only application to support both CD-Audio and DVD Audio formats within a unified interface. WaveLab 5 is also the first and currently only application to combine all aspects of stereo and multi-channel high-resolution audio editing, processing, mastering and DVD-Audio authoring/burning.

“WaveLab 5 is without doubt the most important update yet for what has become a classic among mastering tools. We are, of course, very proud to be able to offer surround and video support in WaveLab,” commented Arnd Kaiser, Steinberg’s Senior Product Manager for Music Technology. “But perhaps even more important is the fact that every CD mastering studio with WaveLab can now also offer DVD-Audio authoring without having to undergo extra training for DVD-A. We’re convinced that WaveLab will play no small part in increasing the popularity and acceptance of this exciting medium,” he concluded.
