Great intro to Wavelab that covers all the features of the software. Lot's of good info about mastering in general that gives the producer an insight into the approaches taken by a mastering engineer.

These are fantastic videos! please film more. WaveLab is the most confusing software ever, and this guy teaches it very effectively. I would have preferred a more detailed description of audio language with regard to peak levels, average levels, etc. That is a very subjective thought.

I bought these 3 tutorials. They are very clear but I recommended it for very beguiners only. I was expecting more deeper explainations. There is also to much repetitions despite is lovely voice.
I'm french, sorry for my english

I've viewed the Intro to mastering in WaveLab7 and found it very well explained. Sound and video quality excellent. Instructor knowledgeable and knows software well. Just found the Intro training limited in the sense that there should be additional training courses for this software. Also, should include how how to convert a 96 Khz sample rate to 44.1.

Very useful even if my primary interest is not mastering per se. I'd like to see follow-up material on the more generic editing tasks with tips on how best to use the Process features -- tips including their limitations or, more interesting, their opportunities for experimentation of discovery. As an electronic music composer, I'm more into the creative possibilities, including montage for creating pieces. Also, relationships between Wavelab and other Steinberg products, e.g., Cubase, Halion...
