    WaveLab is today's leading mastering and audio editing platform, favoured by mastering engineers, producers, sound designers, musicians and audio schools alike. WaveLab Pro 9.5 represents a quantum leap in audio quality by introducing first-rate features for polishing audio material to the highest standards. Introducing a brand-new Spectrum Editor with a modern Spectrogram and Wavelet display, the patent-pending Audio Inpainting technology and enhancements for automatic error detection and correction — WaveLab 9.5 has it all. But there's more. Enjoy a revamped plug-in set including RestoreRig, new batch processing modules, many improvements for mastering and audio editing tasks as well as supporting modern technologies.

    Overhauled Spectrogram
    WaveLab 9.5 offers a new, modern and better looking Spectrogram with many additional display settings to allow you to meticulously find and edit that particular frequency you are looking for. The Spectrogram offers a customisable view, display settings, colour schemes with presets, psychoacoustic scales and all this with unprecedented speed and performance.

    Brand-new Wavelet Display
    Alongside the new Spectrogram, WaveLab Pro 9.5 introduces a Wavelet display that allows you to visualise the musical content of your audio file more accurately, since the analysis is based on musical pitch scaling. The Wavelet display performs a dynamic energy distribution in the whole frequency range, showing a higher time resolution in high frequencies and a higher frequency resolution in lower frequencies. As well as the new Spectrogram, the Wavelet display is also highly customisable and presets can be stored.

    State-of-the-art Spectrum Editor
    In accordance with the new ribbon and tabs concept introduced in WaveLab 9, version 9.5 now offers a dedicated Spectrum tab, with a wide range of brand-new tools and functions that enable very accurate yet flexible spectral editing, always available right there when and where you need them.

    Alongside the standard rectangle selection tool, many new selection options have been added to the toolset including Lasso for drawing a free shape of selection, Brush that allows you to paint a selection and a Magic Wand that automatically analyses and selects the surrounding spectral content with similar dB magnitude with a single mouse click. It is also possible to automatically select one or more harmonics of a selected fundamental frequency.

    And not only the amount of selection tools is larger, but also a range of new processing functionality has been added, e.g. the possibility to add a watermark to the Spectrogram, be it text or a picture as well as several fine-tuning settings for the most demanding audio engineers.

    Audio Inpainting
    You may have heard of the Inpainting terminology from graphics editing software, and now WaveLab Pro 9.5 has implemented it for audio. Audio Inpainting is Steinberg's patent-pending technology to remove unwanted noise from your audio material and replace it meaningfully by analysing the spectral information of the surrounding area and recreating the missing content in a logical way. This can also be used in other cases, such as to regenerate missing audio caused by an audio dropout or to get rid of audio artifacts.
    You can set up the resolution and precision of the algorithm, the persistence of the original audio material, as well as the range of the area to be used as reference by using the Show Surrounding Region option to achieve different results.

    New Error Correction Tab
    The error correction toolset in WaveLab has also been redesigned and transferred to the new Error Correction tab, allowing for an intuitive worflow and quick access to all functions speeding up the process of finding and correcting clicks and errors in your audio material. Additionally to the usability enhancements, the Error Correction tab now also includes the Audio Inpainting algorithm, so that you can repair your audio files without necessarily being an expert in spectral editing.

    RestoreRig
    RestoreRig is WaveLab's new plug-in suite comprising three modules: DeNoiser, DeBuzzer and DeClicker (the latter consisting also of a DePopper and a DeCrackler) unified in one single user interface. With a Gain control, a Level and a spectrum meter, the new RestoreRig offers a very flexible and accurate restoration toolset to detect and remove unwanted noise and audio artifacts in real time. Also, each module has an independent Noise Listening mode to monitor only the noise that is being removed from the audio.
    With its high-quality, freshly coded algorithms and modern user interface, RestoreRig replaces the seven-year-old restoration plug-in suite from Sonnox.

    Apple Touch Bar Support
    WaveLab 9.5 is also compatible with the Apple Touch Bar of new MacBook computers. The context-related default set of user actions can be individually customised to have always access to your most used tools an functions at your fingertips.

    The context of the Touch Bar elements is linked to the currently selected WaveLab editor, so that you can define different tools and actions for any editor independently of each section.
