Hope everyone is havin a swell day So I’ve got a weird problem… it’s been going on for quite some time now but it’s mostly been a nuisance, however, now it’s gotten worse with a clean install / upgrade to the latest WAVES version (11 I believe). It has now become a problem. What happens is when I try to boot up 8.5 (which a lot of my projects are still within even though I’ve moved to 10) it crashes right when it’s scanning the Waveshell files. Every time. MANY times. I have to keep trying many times, usually dozens, and finally, painfully, it pushes through to the whole startup and goes into Cubase. At that point, Cubase works like a charm. But, lots of times it can be a good 15-30 minutes to go through this process, and that really is starting to mess up my workflow, particularly when I have clients in.
Interestingly - Cubase 10 boots right up with narry an issue! Plows right through the Waveshells and goes right in every time.
Anyone seem this before? I haven’t reinstalled Cubase 8.5 yet (I’m afraid) but I’ve reinstalled just about everything else including waves. A few times.
By the way, this version of Waves is 100% legal, if you were wondering. All software and plug are legal on this machine, so there should be no reason for anything like that to effect things.
