I uninstalled the Waves v5 plugins and installed the Waves V9 both VST2 and VST3 were installed. When I opened MS preset a message poped up and said “it could not find Waves C4 plugin”
So I reinstalled the Waves v5 and now the MS presets open. I then open the newer version of the plugin (Vst2 not Vst3) and copy the values to it and save…I guess Waves v5 is (VST) and Waves v9 is (VST2 & VST3) so based on what you said above VST2 will also not be able to find the older VST plugins from Waves v5
So this will always be an issue because all my MS presets were created with VST so in order to get them to work with the newer plugin format (VST3) I would have to redo all of them. This will happen again when (VST4 or a newer format) comes out. Their should be a way to migrate those settings from old platfrom to new on
I normally would not have upgraded my Waves plugins to v9. All I read on these threads is that if you have an issue you need to get the latest for compatibility reasons. So I did and now I have to go back and redo all of the MS presets.
I may just keep using the Waves v5 until it don’t work anymore like the ME1.5 To me I hear no difference in audio quality comparing v5 and v9
It’s also easier to change values in v5 compared to v9. In v5 you click in any value box on pluging as long as the cursor is flashing in the box and change value with keypad then go to next one. In v9 you have to double click and make sure box turns white and value is selected then input new value with keypad and hit enter to save. Why was this behavior changed. It now makes it longer to do.
I did read in one of the Waves v9 manuals where I think they reference this. Look at last entry for “enable single click text entry” but it’s a Pro Tools only option
4.4 Waves Preferences (Pro Tools only)
