Hi and welcome,

Double-check if the plug-ins are not blacklisted in the VST Plug-in Manager, please.

i check in the VST manager and no, the plugs in are not black listed… :’(
Wednesday, i upgrate on Cubase 10.5 and I don’t found waves plugs-ins tooo.
thank you very much reply


Cubase 8.5 is not officially compatible with macOS 10.15. Are the plug-ins compatible with macOS 10.15?

I upgrated to cubase Pro 10.5.12 wednesday.
plug-ins are lasted version of waves, the SSL4000 Collection and Horizon collection by waves. (waves V11)
In “tech spec” of collections they say Operating System
10.12.6 - 10.15 :’(


Oh sorry, Cubase 10.5 does support macOS 10.5.

Do you use iLok?

when I install cubase 10.5 I use ILock and my lecence is instal on USB eLicencer
i try to reinstall waves licence and waves plug=ins.
and nothing is happening… :’(
i will try to join waves support in a second time
If you want, i can attach image captures if it can help you
thank you Martin to reply


Cubase doesn’t use iLok.

Is your Waves license stored on the iLok?
