Activate Licenses

Last updated on: 10/19/2020 4:42:07 AM

Learn how to activate Waves licenses directly to your computer or to a USB flash drive, using the Waves Central application. You can do this only for licenses that are currently “Not Activated” (on the License Cloud).

Please note that licenses can be activated to one device at a time (computer or USB flash drive).

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 exist in this software version.
  • For more information on using older licenses and software, see below

Please follow these steps:

  1. Launch Waves Central
    Windows: via the desktop shortcut or via Start Menu > All Programs > Waves Central.
    Mac: Applications > Waves Central.
  2. Select the Licenses page.
  3. Select My License Cloud at the top of the page.
  4. Choose the license/s you wish to activate. Selected licenses will appear in the list on the right.
  5. Choose the target device for the activated license/s.
  6. Click the Activate button.
