Last updated on: 1/5/2023 4:46:38 AM

Follow the steps below to install Waves software products and activate their licenses to your computer in one go, using Waves Central’s “Install Products” page.

Important Notes:
  • Check which software version is most suitable for your system and DAW.
  • Current version licenses will activate older version software (V9 and above), if the product/s in question exists in this software version.
  • For more information on using older licenses and software, see below.
  1. If you already have the Waves Central application installed, skip to step 2.
    If you don’t, download and install Waves Central:

  2. Launch Waves Central.
    Windows: via the desktop shortcut or Start Menu > All Programs > Waves Central.
    Mac: Applications > Waves Central.
  3. Log into Waves Central.
  4. Click the Install Products page. This displays a list of your purchased plugins and their install status.

    • To view only the products for which you have a license, select the My Products tab.
    • To view all Waves software products by version, select the All Products tab and choose the version to display in the 'View' menu.
  5. Select the products you wish to install from either list, and review the selections in the Summary section.
  6. Click on the Install button. If you are activating licenses as well, the button will read Install and Activate.

Your products are now ready to use.

By default, a license will be activated to the local computer. You can also activate it to a USB flash drive. Use the Target Device for Licenses panel to select where you want to send the license.
