Metadata for CD Tracks

You can associate metadata with individual CD tracks or with an entire CD. When rendering CD tracks via the Render function in the Master Section, the audio files can inherit this metadata.

Because standard CD Text is not Unicode, it does not always provide the optimum text data. To solve this issue, WaveLab Pro provides variables.

For CD tracks, there are two types of variables:

  • Auto variables

  • Custom variables

Auto variables are automatically added by WaveLab Pro. For example, ISRC, track names, and CD-Text. Custom variables can be manually edited to add additional metadata for the track.

  • To see and edit the CD track metadata, open the CD window, and select Functions > Edit CD Metadata.


In this dialog, you prepare the metadata. How they are saved, is specified in the Metadata dialog.
