Crashing DAW, with Waves Plugins


#1

Hello, For the last year, all my music software has been CRACKED. I’ve spent time learning to use the lot, DAW, VST instruments, Plugins. However, having decided I like where I’ve been and having the money pare, I finally decided to go straight and purchase official licenced copies of everything I need. My DAW (Cubase 10 Elements), IK Multimedia T-Racks 5 Max, Celemony Melodyne and, of course Waves GOLD BUNDLE. However, despite attempting to scrub all of the residual cracked software from my system, there still appears to be some issues:

  1. Every time I launch my DAW, I get prompted to select a folder for Waves 9.2 Plugins folder, but I don’t have any, everything that I purchased should be Waves v10. This prompt, I have further discovered is the precursor to my second problem:
  2. I launch an old project and the inserts contain the remnant settings for the old cracked software that I have. If the plugin editor windows are open (Usually REQ) and I try to close them, my DAW crashes completely. I even tried resetting the mix console in one go, because with all the new stuff I have, I am happy to re-mix from scratch, but I can’t even do that without the DAW crashing. As I have now purchased Waves GOLD BUNDLE, which includes REQ (always the culprit) I don’t even know why they are doing this. I’m using Windows 7 x64 bit, INTEL Core i5 with 8GB of Ram, and the machine is a music workstation only
    Any ideas what I can do to resolve this issue, please?

Thanks, Rob
