Wavelab 11 crashes when using master section plugins

It doesn’t seem to matter which plugin or manufacturer I try. If I try to instantiate a plugin or open a plugin UI, it crashes. Super frustrating, as I have been learning various workflows from Justin Perkins’ videos, and it’s difficult/impossible to experiment with the master section right now.

I’m not sure how I can provide more helpful information. I guess I can record a screen video and post a link.

I’m on an Mac Studio with an M1 Max chip, running MacOS 12.6 Monterrey.

Here is a video. I tried clicking two different plugins, and instantiating a third one.


The obvious question: I do not know what changed because at some point I could instantiate plugins, which is how those first two plugins got there in the first place.

Thank you in advance for your advice or suggestions!
