Read R2R.txt before everything :)


Unlike Waves Complete, Ultimate
does not contain SoundGrid, eMotion
LV1, SuperRack. If you need them,
use previous or wait next Complete.
These apps are too professional and
not included in their subscription.

StudioVerse is not included because it's
web service. Some people finally got the
resason to pay the money to Waves.

There we go ... Waves go up-Waves go down
Thanks R2R

Thanks a lot !

Is it possible to choose which Vst you want or does it install everything ?
  Resident 24.07.2019 15 855
It installs everything (except any instrument libraries).

thank you Begotten

Yay! Thanks so much, R2R and Decibelle.
Usually, R2R’s Waves releases work perfectly and are my preference. Mind you, VR’s form of patching worked well for me back on versions 10 & 11. Still, I find that R2R’s treatment of Waves’ stuff is typically more reliable. I’m pro R2R, but I’m not anti VR.

VR’s ‘fixed’ programs and plugins are definitely more reliable nowadays. A few years ago, I avoided them like the plague, but nowadays, VR’s fixes usually work well. VR does a bang up job on Arturia and Toontrack VIs! For most things, I prefer R2R’s offerings, but there are a few items/brands that VR is the better choice for, in my opinion.

Cubeadooby, Flare and Mocha are all getting better and better too. Gotta love Bob Dule’s Native Instruments’ fixes. We are very privileged to have all these “fixers” and teams supplying us with so many audio tools. God bless em all.

the way i see it, vr are way prompter, and cover a lot more releases, but usually don't mess with the apps - so that's what allows them to provide so many releases, so quickly - and that's a great thing.

r2r re-engineer a lot of releases, remove/deactivate protection modules, make the plugins skip checks, etc. that makes some apps work faster, and take a lot less space. I prefer r2r releases myself, and appreciate the dedication and mastery, but the flip side is their releases are more rare, and cover a smaller range - more work to be done for each. range and frequency is where vr shine.

so, it's different approaches, and i see the logic and utility in both.

like you said, we're just privileged to have these teams of musicians' robin hoods who allow us access to stuff we couldn't access otherwise, many times, and certainly not as fast. most of the time, allow us to compare, understand, decide how to spend our money, on what we can afford, and use stuff we couldn't afford, or did not even know existed.

huge thanks to them, and to the other teams - flare, mocha, cubeadooby, p2p, tcd, fuck, ret, audiowarez, utopia - I'm gonna forget many of them, but they're all really appreciated.

i wouldn't be where i am in my music making progress if it weren't for them, but probably orders of magnitude lower.

and let's not forget the free plugin developers who work for the same goal, like analog obsession, variety of sound, airwindows, pseudo stereo, to name just of few. great stuff from them, too, on par with the big names, many times better.

Thank you R2R and thank you DECiBELLE

I know R2R said earlier that there is no way to customize the installation path
But can you put a version without COSMOS so that the rest of the plugins can be installed as a custom installation path?
  Member 6.12.2019 4 21
Does WavesLocalServer.exe still stay there after closing the DAW in this version?

quote by JSoloIs it possible to choose which Vst you want or does it install everything ?

cant be any worse than VCollection R2R versions.

but it is indeed a question, hope somebody answers.

Thanks R2R and Deci!
If you want to supply something, you can. PM is open for that.
  Resident 21.10.2014 10 824
No if you put some effort and make logical solutions for yourself.
TEAM R2R will not serve us always with easy solution. That is the best one and they told why is that.
As yourself you ahould know about program repacking, nowadays those bundles have a over 100k files so you need to make script for each plugin and that is time consuming.

One-in-all installer. You can't select which VST you want.
  Member 19.12.2019 70
waves went subscription based lmao
i won't ever use it if it was given for free
  Contributor 3.05.2011 667 4680
thats what i think too.

I think older versions are decent still. I have a R2R release from 2018 installed, has all the waves stuff i could need without their not cool newer plugins.

Anyone should boykot them and rather user other plugins. And at its best support other developers

What is teh best alternative for R-Bass?
  Resident 25.12.2017 6 1909
It might seem like voodoo, but it's really nothing more than targeted saturation. If you're interested in the actual workings, and how to recreate what it does with other plugins, check out Dan Worrall's video on YT:

Melda. Melda is awesome. No fancy fotorealistic fckup. Slick, good sounding plugins.
  Resident 21.10.2014 10 824
Melda is top notch but myself can not stand GUI is to messy and confusing. But I love Melda, plenty useful tools.

  Resident 14.11.2013 380
You're right it is messy. I like the look, and that it doesnt use much space, but they could do better in showing what does what.

"StudioVerse is not included because it's web service. Some people finally got the reason to pay the money to Waves."

Lol fair point, but couldnt someone just sub to waves monthly, grab the chains, and share the "preset" for each plugin with a txt file explaining the order?
  Resident 12.03.2012 5 491
I think is even more simple than that, just save the chains.
