This tutorial was awesome and to the point!!! So sad that stevemarchant appears to be illiterate. Perhaps he has a learning disability that makes it hard for him to understand information that is being presented. Whatever the reason for his shortsighted review, I really liked it, the narrator gave a clear and concise explanation of the workings of this cool plugin.

I wa really looking forward to learning about WaveLab but he the narrative of this video is extreeeeeeeeemly anoying in that the author has edited out all the natural pauses that occur when in normal speech. I really can not bear to listen to any more. I will look for courses by other major re natural sounding authors.

Great introduction to WaveLab
Really glad that I found this video series. Explains a lot about the interface. It is a bit slow and overly in depth on file managing at the beginning, but less so toward the end. Would have liked more of the slow in depth stuff at the end. Albeit, this video was invaluable to me to see WaveLab working.
