Sample Libraries for Waves Instruments
Download high-definition (HD) and/or standard (SD) sample libraries for your Waves instruments. To play each instrument, you must have at least one of its libraries installed on your computer.
For optimal download behavior, we recommend you use a Download Manager with ‘Resume’ capability.
Grand Rhapsody Piano Sample Libraries
See installation instructions (neither library is pre-installed: you must download at least one).
After you have downloaded the libraries (SD, HD, or both) follow these steps:
- Extract the sample library/libraries to the desired location.
Mac users are advised to use Archive Utility (right-click the file and choose to open with Archive Utility).
- Launch/Load the instrument, either as a plugin or as a standalone application.
- If prompted to “Please locate your Waves instrument’s Sample Library folder,” navigate to the location where you’ve extracted your sample library and click OK.
- Information about the samples folder is shown in the WaveSystem toolbar. To select a different sample library or a different library location, click on the Sample Library bar (highlighted below) and navigate to the desired folder.
