using Waves plug-ins in Vegas

Neel wrote on 3/14/2023, 8:43 AM

So, I finally managed to find the .dll files for my Waves plug-ins (C:\Program Files (x86)\Waves\Plug-Ins V10\H-Reverb.bundle\Contents\Win64) and copied the 64-bit versions to a folder where Vegas looks for VST plug-ins. But they are not showing up in the list in Vegas.

What's the deal here? Are Waves plugs somehow different and they don't work in Vegas? They work just fine in Cakewalk, my music making software.

I'm using Vegas Pro 19.

Thanks

Neel

Waves' compatibility webpage advises that the last version of Waves plugins that was compatible with Vegas Pro was version 9.6 - https://www.waves.com/support/how-to-find-your-plugins-in-vegas-sound-forge

Waves recommends to roll-back to V9.6 if Vegas Pro/Sound Forge functionality is wanted.

Thanks, I just used the Waves directory as the alternate folder for Vegas, and they all came in now. More than I wanted, but I guess I can just uncheck the ones I don't want in Vegas.

Also, I only have V10, V11, V12, and V14 waves plugs in the folder. No V9 plugs.

Opening the H-Reverb interface in Vegas introduces a ton of latency and distortion. Switch to another plug-in in the chain and it plays back OK, so I can't make changes in real-time with H-Reverb.

Using Cantibale Lite as your VST Host would be something to experiment with.
