What works

All menus are ok, only minor visible distortions in the GUI.

Basic wave editing works well (select, cut, copy, paste, delete). Global analysis works. All kinds of selecting, scrolling and zooming (up/down cursor keys, control plus mouse wheel, click on time ruler and drag) work - even faster than on MS Win****.

Audio Montages work ok and quite stable. I've done some montages of one hour length each. Master Section and Rendering works ok.

What does not

Sometimes loading a Master Section plugin crashes WaveLab (happened with Peak Master plugin).

Online Help does not work at all. But you can read the .chm help file with an external CHM-Viever (e.g. xchm).


What was not tested

  • Most of "Process" main menu entries.
  • "Sampling" and "Tools" main menu entries
  • "Analysis" funtions apart from "Global analysis"
