If you experience unusually high CPU consumption from Waves Plugins V14 and above while using a non-Intel CPU and Windows, learn how to enable MKL optimization to improve CPU performance.
We have received reports that some Waves plugins do not work well with non-Intel CPUs such as AMD Ryzen. We have found that our MKL optimization is not automatically enabled. Enabling it can solve this issue in most cases.
If, for any reason, this does not improve (or lowers) CPU performance of other software – please follow these steps to disable the MKL optimization.
