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.

Thinking positively it's only a mater of time before all 2500 presets are downloaded and somehow the web page blocked to work..

It's like a beautiful piece of graffiti at the showcase of a lushful store. Thanks R2R, for the model of subscription that keep the masses happy
  Resident 21.10.2014 10 833
Is there any new and interesting plugin or just old releases converted to subscription model.
If nothings new why should we have it anyways?

not a lot of new stuff but there seems to be some bug fixes and graphic related improvements. still worth it to be up to date.

Thanks a lot Decibelle and off course the Kings R2R

Thanks a lot for giving me a wonderful day
  Member 11.02.2016 17 210
I have maybe a stupid question: If I do clean install of this, as the txt files says, will I lost all my cosmos analyzed samples? I mean... 200k+ samples were analyzing for almost 2 days already, It'd be a shame to lost all that work...

EDIT: Or maybe I can just install this over Waves.Complete.v2023.01.17.Incl.Emulator-R2R? That'd be great.

Faced with abusive practices, we have the revolution.

Cheers R2R, you are absolutely necessary, lots of love.

Thank you R2R. The following is related entirely to Waves. Not R2R.

This new version hangs constantly when DAW is scanning at launch.
Sometimes the WavesLocalServer & WavesPluginScanner closes when DAW closes. Sometimes not.

The NX plugins get stuck while being scanned by DAW (Reaper, Pro Tools, Studio One).

Waves released yet another batch under baked product.

Only have them installed to help my son if he gets stuck on something. Nuking this & going back to previous version.
All is known, when, it is known
  Resident 17.01.2012 12 847
I just checked on my side and you are right. WavesLocalServer & WavesPluginScanner act just like you described and this is another Waves bug.

As for the NX plugins - I got them scanned and working fine so far in Reaper, Cubase 12 and Studio One 6.
Did you check if you have latest Visual C++ and Web2View installed? Maybe that's the problem?
  Resident 24.01.2021 141
Thank you for info.

no subscription.

i was just preparing to buy the next batch of plugins that i use, from them. or don't use but just like. i guess i won't be doing that now.

independent developers look better and batter, every day, in comparison to these great reset corporations, and there are some really good ones out there. support those.

canntot find DTS Mono2Stereo & Duggun Speech plugins
  Member 19.08.2022 32
Does it include BB Tubes?
  Releaser 4.08.2019 188 258
Yes.. I thought it was not there also. Magma BB Tubes and Magma Channel Strip is under the M's" letter category.

I followed instructions, i.e. uninstalled and cleaned previous install.
Does anyone know why the VST's appear but wont load, on Ableton it says "The VST2 plugin could not be found"?
  Member 7.09.2022 1 47
Fuck... with the new waves central update, it doesn't let me install the old versions (v13) I have the R2R Version of. This was a solution to not install everything because I only use like 6-7 older waves plugins....

Please, R2R or anybody can make a version where you can actually select what to install? There is so much bloat here, but also a few very good plugins between them.
  Member 27.12.2017 10
I don't think, but you can do that afetr install..:

Save the entire Waves folder (C:\Program Files (x86)\Waves) in winrar archive.

Then, delete everything you don't need in the original folder :

C:\Program Files (x86)\Waves

Delete "C:\Program Files (x86)\Waves\COSMOS" & "C:\Program Files (x86)\Waves\ReWire" folders if you don't use them.

In : "C:\Program Files (x86)\Waves\Applications V14"
& "C:\Program Files (x86)\Waves\Plug-Ins V14"
Only keep what you use (the wavelibs & the Documents folder too), the rest is deleted

And in : "C:\Program Files (x86)\Waves\Data"
Delete everything that is related to the tools you don't use and
if you don't know what it is, keep it !

After that, if you want to test or reinstall somme plugins you have just to use
the "Waves.rar" to reinstall the missing files in their correct folder.

It works very well except for some plugins that depend on each other like
TG Mastering console depend on others AbbeyRoad plugs...

It's up to you to try, you can't go wrong because you have the "Waves.rar" !

Good luck and Good Music
  Member 7.09.2022 1 47
Thanks for the Tip! The Problem however is that Waves still stores all the Plugins in the Waveshell DLL and I would need a solution to get them out of there because Bitwig still "sees" all plugins registered in the Waveshell.
  Member 27.12.2017 10
Oh, don't know that for bitwig... even after a new scan of the plugins ?

I don't have a solution for that, it's a real problem. Maybe by editing the shell, but it must be impossible and corrupt the dll, i'm not tested that. And if it works, do that after each update ???? pfff

It is possible, thanks to old "Shell to VST", to know exactly which plugin is in a given Waveshell. Once they are know, delete the ones that are not useful... tedious!

Good Music

(EDIT) : Ok there are just one waveshell now.... Using Vst2 and converting with the "Shell2VSt" program and select the plugins you want; And not use VST3.
  Member 15.08.2022 2 62
Thats what I thought but know when I am trying to reinstall from the rar it gives me an error code saying "checksum error"... Has that happen to y'all to? how do we fix pls
  Resident 25.12.2017 6 1942
Apparently, Waves is resorting back to their perpetual licenses as soon as they can. They'll be keeping the subscription service as an option though.

Anyone having issues with studiorack?It crashes studio one 6.1 everytime it worked fine before this release and i used revo to un install old waves any ideas?
  Member 27.12.2017 10
Hi, I'm just using this studiorack version with studio one 6.02 and it work fine.
But yesterday I found a bug in studio one 6.1 (impossible to use a mono bus as input for tracks), reverted to 6.02 and works... I think the 6.1 on the AZ site is buggy...

I con't confirm for studiorack, but for meit's work with 6.02.. try it !
  Member 31.03.2023 8

  Member 18.07.2013 43
