Frequently Asked Questions

+ I have installed the required plugins. Why are they showing Disabled in Studio Rack?
Make sure that all Waves plugins have been scanned and validated for use in your DAW. You may need to rescan all Waves plugins for them to show up in StudioRack. Here are the steps to do so in various DAWs:

Logic Pro X
Pro Tools
Studio One
FL Studio
Ableton Live

If individual Waves plugins are loading but are showing “disabled” in Studio Rack: follow these steps to rescan the StudioRack module and plugins. If you have installed Waves V10 and are having issues, see this article.

Please note that only plugins with a valid license, purchased from Waves.com or authorized reseller will load these presets.

+ Is StudioRack required to load the plugins?
Drum Chains was designed for use in Waves Studio Rack to provide the most flexible and powerful setup in all DAWs. However, channel strip settings and track presets are also included, which DO NOT require Studio Rack (Logic Pro X and Cubase Pro users only).
+ Why do I have to use a stereo version of StudioRack on a stereo audio track or aux?
The presets in Drum Chains contain effects such as stereo reverbs, stereo delays, stereo doubling and other stereo enhancing effects that must be routed through a stereo output. You can still utilize a mono drum recording routed to a stereo effect plugin or aux without issues.
+ Why isn't StudioRack working in my DAW?
StudioRack is available for all major DAWs but only with the latest versions and there are some exceptions. See this list for complete compatibility.
