Frequently Asked Questions

+ Is Waves Tune Real-Time required to use Vocal Chains V3?
To utilize pitch correction included in many of the presets, yes, although it is not required. You can simply disable the instance of Waves Tune Real-Time and utilize the rest of the vocal chain processing.
+ There is a noticable delay while recording with the vocal chains. What do I need to adjust?
Ensure you have set your DAW Audio I/O buffer settings to 512 samples or less (256 is recommended). Also, activate “low latency mode” or delay compensation in your respective DAW.
+ The pitch correction setting doesn't sound right / isn't in the correct key. How do I fix this?
You must identify the key of the song you’re performing to and set accordingly in Waves Tune Real-Time. For more information on how to make this adjustment, see this video.
+ 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.

+ I'm hearing duplicate vocal signals with record enabled for the vocal chains. Why can't I only hear the wet signal?
Check to make sure you are ONLY monitoring the input from the DAW (software monitoring). Any external monitoring from your audio interface should be disabled.
+ Why do I have to use a stereo version of plugins on a stereo audio track or aux? Aren't vocals recording in mono anyway?
The presets in Vocal Chains V3 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 vocal recording routed to a stereo effect plugin or aux without issues.
