Waves V11 / StudioRack Compatibility Update

Update (1.17.20)
New versions of StudioRack are in development, with several updates expected this year. The new versions will be compatible with Waves V11 plugins and will also have exciting new features. The first release in this series of updates is scheduled for Q2 2020. Check back on this page for more information as it becomes available.

Instructions for using StudioRack with V11 Licenses:

If you want to use your purchased plugins inside StudioRack (as long as it isn’t a brand new plugin that simply does not exist in V10) – you should activate the V11 license of the plugin (in Waves Central’s “Licenses” page), but then install the V10 software version of the plugin (in Waves Central’s “Install Products” page). This works, because V11 Licenses can be used to activate either V10 or V11 software. If a StudioRack user wants to buy a plugin now – whether it’s a brand new release, or an older plugin but a new purchase – the license will be V11.

This way, you will be able to use purchased plugins inside StudioRack (again – as long as the plugin is not a brand new product, released after October 28, 2019).

You can find the legacy installers for Waves V10 plugins here.


Please see the Official V11 FAQ for more information before updating. I encourage StudioRack users with specific questions/concerns to contact Waves support.

Thanks for your patience and understanding – I’ll share more information as it becomes available and all updates will be posted on this page.
