In Cubase 10.5, Cubase locates every plug-in including all Waves plug-ins. Therefore I can conclude this is not a problem with Waves, but with Wavelab. While, when scanning, I can see Wavelab scan the Waveshell, it simply doesn’t scan all Waves programs. It omits about 3/4s of all Waves programs.
I attached 2 Waveshells to show their locations. One is for VST3, the other VST2. These paths are reflected in the list “on start up the following folders were searched…” The “scan on next start-up” doesn’t change anything. I’m advised to not move either locations of Waves Waveshells.
I also attached the Waves plug-ins that do show up.
Things I have tried and failed:
- Force Plug-in Detection at next launch. (in the past week probably 100 times trying different things)
- Hold control > Force Plug-in Detection at next launch. I then deleted everything in Steinberg>Wavelab>9.5>Cache
- Trash Preferences Delete C>users>user name> app data>Wavelab pro 9.5
- Uninstall then reinstall Wavelab 9.5.15. it didn’t show 3/4ths of the Waves plugs, then ran the Wavelab 9.5.50 update, and there was no change.
What is left to try? Is there deeper Wavelab residue that needs to be deleted?
Steinberg support just forwarded a System Information File to the “development team” which doesn’t sound very encouraging.
The only success I have had in Wavelab showing all Waves plug-ins to show up, is take a Wavelab Preferences folder that I had saved from last November, and place it at C>users>user name> app data>Wavelab pro 9.5. That did make all Waves plug-ins show up, but once I did a “Force Plug-in Detection at next launch” it’s back to the bad behavior of only 1/4s of Waves plugs showing up.
What else should I try and thanks in advance?
