Wavelab Pro alternatives with external gear


Are there any Wavelab Pro alternatives that can use external gear on OSX?

SoundBlade, DSP Quattro, and PreSonus Studio One come to mind.

As one that is not a fan of WaveLab’s hardware integration, I use a combo of REAPER and WaveLab and they make a great team. In the end this saves me a lot of time due to their niche features and workflows.

I am trying to connect my external gear in Wavelab Pro 9.5. I followed all steps below but can only use one instance of the External Gear plugin in the audio chain?!?

I have lots of in and outputs configured/connected to different gear (file/preferences/audio connections/ASIO plugins):
Universal Audio Thunderbolt
Device output to gear LINE 5/6, 7/8 etc
When I load the External Effect plugin I only hear the first connection I made in this configuration screen...

In Cubase it is possible to use all gear in different plugins as “External Effect”. Am I doing something wrong here or is it true you can only use 1 piece of gear in Wavelab? :(

Select File > Preferences > VST Audio Connections.
Set the Audio Device to ASIO.
Select the ASIO Plug-instab.
Select the channels to be used for device output (to gear) and device input (from gear), and click OK.
In the Effects pane of the Master Section window, select the External Gearplug-in from the ASIOsubmenu.
The External Gear plug-in window opens.

You can use as many pieces of gear as you want, but only one chain. So yeah if you need multiple ins/outs you need to use Cubase or Reaper, etc.
