WaveLab LE 7

I bought Zoom H1 and got Steinberg WaveLab LE 7 with it. So I tried it. But it was not worth it. It takes ages to install because of some obscure licencer, than it takes long to start, the interface tries to look nice but offers nothing special, and than it occupies almost all of my (Pentium M 1.4 GHz) CPU just to play a wav. My CPU might be old and weak, but Audacity has no problem with it. For the same job Audacity needs only a few percent of CPU. And it’s free and open source. Bravo Audacity! Thumbs down for WaveLab LE 7 :(

verdict: obviously no point using it on older computers. what about new and powefull ones? is it more efficient there then Audacity? or the CPU resouirces there are just so abundant that they may be wasted?


version 0.8b3 (20110223)

One of the few WYSIWYG HTML editors for Linux. One of the even fewer that have split view.


I could not even enter the title for the page. I tried to do it in source view and it just did not want to accept it. Stubbornly it kept the title tag empty (<title />).

If one document is open and you want to open another from the site manager, nothing happens. You must first open a new window or close the existing document.

I added something in source view and could not save. Only when I closed the document of window, it offered me the option to save.

Verdict:  Just ten minutes of using is enough to understand that it is simply – unusable.
