It just gets better and better. The progress bar during click corrections is a positive improvement. Really appreciate being able to type track titles in without having move the cursor for every track. The ability to switch from track to wave display is very convenient. So far Beta 3.3 is a winner.

Hi Derek,
I have to agree with Stan; there are a number of useful improvements incorporated in the new beta. I just had the chance to put it through it's paces and I'm quite pleased with the way it works. Opening up a read-only file works invisibly; I'm willing to wager a wav file could be worked directly from a cd. The new session file properties works very well also, thank-you. Just a minor note on that: In the applied filters listed, the graphics filter is an unintelligible list of characters, at least on my machine. Don't know if that's an issue or not; on session files without click corrections there are no listed filters at all.

My favourite improvement is the ability to open up an alternate wav file from any given session, and it was the first thing I tested. Stability has always been a hallmark of WaveCorrector and I've found this tradition continues. The warning is a good idea but I've had no reasons for concern thus far. This will greatly simplify output file naming for me, and the album rule applying the session name is a nice touch. Excellent!
The functionality of overlapping corrections works much better now, with the added bonus that, so far, removing one from a single channel works more consistently as well. I've found the refinement of the already excellent track break algorithm also works better, as it truncates less music at the end of each track, seeming to reach the noise floor first. I've yet to test it with tape, however.

The new track view is an interesting development. I haven't figured out how it works yet but that will come in time. At present, opening a session file that contains only track boundaries disables the wave button. For some reason, I have to double-click the waveform window to bring in the new view, and only from there do the wave/track buttons work. Also, I'm not able to disable the vertical scale in the new view. One other thing: Whilst in the new view the play/stop buttons resume playback from the last cursor position, similar to pause/unpause. I don't know if this is intentional or not but seems odd to me. On first playback it always starts from the vertical scale marker.

All in all, some great improvements worth waiting for. Thanks again.
Glenn

Hi Glenn

Thanks for the feedback.

Can you email me a couple of these problem session files and I'll try to find out what's going wrong. They definitely shouldn't be doing what you report

You can't select waveform view when you have a track boundary selected. However, you can now scroll away from the boundary position and then the waveform view becomes available.

Yes the vertical scale problem is an oversight on my part. Thanks for pointing it out.

There are now two play buttons, one to play from start and one to play from cursor. When playback stops, it leaves behind a cursor so you can resume from that point if required. This has been asked for by a number of users. The problem before was that once playback had stopped, there was no record of where you had got to.
