Tips and tricks for using Waveshell Vst3 7.1

Waveshell Vst3 7.1 is designed to make your workflow easier and smoother, but sometimes you may encounter some problems or errors when using it. Here are some tips and tricks to help you troubleshoot and optimize your experience with Waveshell Vst3 7.1:

  • If you have updated your Waves plugins, or installed a new one, you must perform a "Verify plugins" scan in your DAW with "Rescan already verified plugins" selected. This is because the Waveshell plugin is unchanged and so your DAW does not know something is new there and won't rescan it to discover your new or updated plugins in the shell.

  • If you prefer using a custom VST folder, copy the appropriate Waveshell file into your preferred folder. For Windows, it is WaveShell-VST [version number]_x64.dll for VST format, and WaveShell-VST [version number].vst3 for VST3 format. For Mac, it is WaveShell-VST [version number].vst for both formats.

  • If you are using an older version of Waves plugins that don't work in 64-bit versions of Windows, you can use a program called shell2vst to wrap the Waves plugins into another plugin. Then most of them will work.

  • If you are experiencing license issues that cause Waves plugins not to load, try moving the licenses to a USB drive using the Waves License Center. This may solve some access restrictions that Windows may impose on your HDD when using a large project.

  • If you are experiencing performance issues or glitches when using Waveshell Vst3 7.1, try disabling Bluetooth (Ad hoc) networks on your computer. It seems that the Waves License Center can inappropriately try to use Ad hoc networks to connect to the internet (and fail). These may be created when you connect or tether your mobile phone/tablet to the network through your computer/laptop.
