    Just looking to print some redbook stuff for clients before it goes off to a real mastering engineer, which I'm not. Was trying to decide between Wavelab Elements and DSP Quattro Pro. Any opinions on which would be better? I fooled around with them both some and am leaning towards QP. I would love to have the full version of Wavelab, but don't really want another dongle when I already have an Ilok. Plus, the full version has far more features than I would ever need and costs considerably more.

    Just wondering if there was a difference between the two that should sway my opinion.

    Never used QP, but if it writes discs (properly...) and that's the big point, I don't see a problem going that way.

    Sidenote: Do you need a dongle for WL Elements...? Honestly, I have no idea. I thought not, but I could certainly be mistaken. My initial reaction would be WL (it's a known quantity, been around forever, etc.). That said - I've not used Elements - But again, if the point is authoring discs with basic editing features, there you go.

    Why not just send them off as Wave or AIFF files??? If you do Red Book you are limiting the songs to 44.1 16 bit. Just a suggestion...
