* Instrument Libraries are not included.
Check our other releases.
* Simple effective licenser emulation. Works faster than legit.

Waves dropped support WPAPI v1.x. Third party WPAPI plugins like Flux,
PluginAlliance, SmartEQ Live, Sonnox does not work. When they are updated we
will include them again.


“Please note: SuperRack, eMotion LV1 v11 and v10 applications support 64-bit
plugins only, and therefore do not currently support third-party plugins.
SoundGrid-compatible plugins by other manufacturers will be supported in the
future, pending the manufacturers’ schedule. eMotion LV1 v9 and MultiRack
still support all of the plugins below. ”

For the people who want to stick with WavesCentral, create Waves account
and install what you need with WavesCentral, and use our emulator.


We have read some comments “I just need one or two plugs blah blah” but that
means Waves is not for them. Waves is optimized to work with many Waves Plug
Instance. If you are considering running just few instance, try to get rid of
Waves and find alternative plugins. You can check yourself how many dlls are
loaded and how many files are read and written to load just one C1 plugin.
Therefore we provide full installation only with good compression and faster

  11. mrluxo

    Patrick. Any chance you could do a quick guide for me since it apparently wasn’t that hard?

    – Install Waves Central
    – Move “Data” Folder (≈5GB) and “Install.cen” to User/Public/Waves Offline
    – Start Offline Installation
    – Resart you computer
    – Execute Waves Licencer
    – Execute all the Waves AU Reg Utilities in the Waves folder in the launchpad
    – Done ! all the plugins works for me in Ableton

  13. san oto

    could you tell me more in detail about”all the Waves AU Reg Utilities in the Waves folder”? where can I find them?

  14. 3C 3Bol

    This one is the only one that’s working for me, tried every Waves Complete bundle.

    Here are the steps I followed after days of fighting installations with waves central, please follow all of them or you will corrupt your installation, if you have a completely new pc where you have never installed Waves you might not need this and you could skip some steps but try to follow all of them:

    1. (Most important step) COMPLETELY delete all waves related files if you have previously successfully or unsuccessfully installed WAVES:
    a. Uninstall plugins with Wave central using offline mode.
    b. Uninstall Soundgrid driver
    c. Uninstall any Waves software (Waves central or Waves plugins)
    d. Manually search for every remaining Waves related file and folder and delete it (Look for “Waves central”, “Waves audio”, “WPAPI”, “Waves”, “Soundgrind”, “RACK”, “waveshell”). You can use “EVERYTHING software to quickly access all your files. Here are some directories you might miss, don’t leave anything behind:

    (C: \ Program Files \ Common Files \ VST3 – WaveShell1-VST3 …
    C: \ Program Files \ VSTPlugins – WaveShell1-VST …
    C: \ Program Files (x86) \ Common Files \ VST3 – WaveShell1-VST3 …
    C: \ Program Files (x86) \ Common Files – WPAPI
    C: \ Program Files (x86) \ VstPlugins – WaveShell1-VST …
    C: \ Program Files (x86) – Waves, Waves Central
    C: \ Users \ NAME \ – .Waves Central
    C: \ Users \ NAME \ AppData \ Local – Waves Audio
    C: \ Users \ NAME \ AppData \ Roaming – Waves Audio
    C: \ Users \ Public – Waves Audio)

    e. Search your registry keys ( Regedit ) for any remaining Waves file (use previously mentioned keywords), use CCleaner automatic reg cleaner if you don’t have a clue how to do it manually, its faster but It’s less precise.

    f. Look in FL Studio database folders (C:\Users\*USER*\Documents\Image-Line\FL Studio\Presets\Plugin database\Installed). Look for waves related file, sometimes it doesn’t even have “waves” in the name look for the name of the plugins (for ex. “cla vocals”, “z-noise”), delete everything wave related, even presets (do backups in a USB if you really need them). If you have a previously corrupted installation there will also be files called “Generic multi core processor” or just numbered files (for ex. “0980123893”) delete those as well.

    BEWARE: Do not delete the entire folder or you will corrupt all your FL vst’s.

    e. Go to C:\Program Files\Common Files\Avid\Audio and rename the Plug-ins folder to Plug-ins1 or any other name or Delete the folder if you don’t use pro tools. Do this EVEN IF YOU DO NOT USE avid pro tools, do not know why this helped me finally install waves but it worked. I think this might be a Waves installation error that might have something to do with permissions, but no idea…

    e. Take the time to make sure you don’t have ANY waves file, this is extremely important. Waveshell, WPAPI, are easily missable, You MUST NOT have wave files in your pc besides WC 27.05.20 torrent files.

    f. After deleting everything, restart your computer and search reg keys again or use CCleaner again.

    2. Install SoundGrid driver found in WC. 27.05.20 and restart. (In the instructions.txt it says it’s optional but it didn’t work without it)

    3. After restarting Install Waves Complete from WC.27.05.20 do not change anything, leave everything to default, just accept every step, and do a full installation and then restart.

    4. Open FL studio and scan for plugins, only with “verify plugins” option selected if you did everything right only waveshell vsts should appear. Do not worry this is normal.

    5. Add C:\Program Files\Waves\Plug-Ins V11 directory to FL studio plugin scan and select “Rescan previously verified plugins” ,”Rescan plugin with error” ,”Combine VST and VST3″, and “Combine “32 and 64 BIT versions” and scan again.

    6. Waves plugin should now appear correctly named and verified.

    Hope this help, I spent 2 days traying to install Waves from Waves central torrents, Please do not try them, the installation usually finish with corrupted files all over your computer and it’s a pain in the ass to delete everything.

    Hello there, I have followed the instructions exactly, and I can see each and every VST in FL, however, when I open any of them up , the VST screen is black, yet strangely, if I click and drag randomly, I can see that I am controlling the knobs from upper left information panel of FL. How do I start the GUI up? Thanks.
