Unfortunately, I do not know all the details of WaveLab. 
Generally, "batch processing" is known as a tool for executing the 
same operation (e.g filtering) on a several existing files at once. 
This is something different than the multiple file recording mode I 
meant. If such an option is available in Wavelab, it should be 
located somewhere in the recording options.

The differences might arise from different software concepts or even 
different data formats. Perhaps WaveLab uses the faster (but less 
precise) 16 bit integer arithmetic and CoolEdit uses 32 bit floating 
point instead. As in many other technical systems, there are often 
tradeoffs between speed and versatility, sophistication and 
precision. However, as we have discussed recently, the precision of 
audio editing commands is not very important in our noisy nature 
sound recordings...


PS: I just downloaded a W32.Bugbear.B diagnosis tool and the latest 
security patch for Windows XP in order to defend my computer against 
any potential attack.
