How to Find Your Plugins in Sonar or Cakewalk by BandLab

Last updated on: 7/12/2020 7:41:19 AM

If you are trying to load your Waves plugins in Sonar or Cakewalk by BandLab but you cannot find them, follow these instructions in order to make the plugins available.

Step #1 – Verify the license is activated

Step #2 – Verify plugin software is correctly installed

Step #3 – Rescan for Plugins

IMPORTANT: After going through this process, you will want to remove the check marks next to “Rescan Failed Plug-ins” and “Rescan Existing Plug-ins,” especially if you have “Automatic Background Scan” enabled. Leaving all of these options configured simultaneously could lead to a continuous scan loop.

Once the rescan is done, create a new session with a supported sample rate, add a track and load your Waves plugins.

None of the above worked? Contact Technical Support.
