How to Roll Back to Waves v9.3

Last updated on: 10/19/2020 4:40:11 AM

Important Notes:
  • Current version licenses will activate older version software (V9 and above), as long as the product/s in question exist in that software version.
  • Products released after September 10, 2015 will not be added to the v9.3 installer. See these Release Notes for more information.
  • To check if a plugin exists in v9.3, scroll to the bottom of the version's download page.
  • Software versions earlier than 9.92 cannot co-exist with software versions above V10. To run V9 side by side with a newer version, install version 9.92.
  • For this reason, installing a newer version alongside V9 may cause a temporary loss of access to the V9 plugins on systems that support both versions. We are aware of this issue, which can be resolved by reinstalling V9.92 plugins or contacting Tech Support.
  • On macOS 10.8.5 and below: Activate your licenses on a USB flash drive on a supported OS, then connect the drive to your computer to load plugins.

If, for any reason, you wish to remove the latest version of Waves plugins or bundles and install v9.3 versions instead, please follow these instructions.

Uninstall the current software version (if installed):

  1. Quit any host application.
  2. Launch Waves Central.
    Windows: via the desktop shortcut or Start Menu > All Programs > Waves
    Mac: Applications > Waves Central
  3. Log into Waves Central using your Waves account information.
  4. Go to the Settings tab.
  5. Under Maintenance, select the products/version you wish to uninstall in the dropdown menu, and click Uninstall.

Install Waves v9.3:

  1. Download and run the Waves 9.3 Installer for | .
  2. In the Select Products screen (Win) / Installation Type menu (Mac), check mark the plugins or bundles for which you have licenses, and finish the installation process.
    Note that non-bundled plugins are located under the "Single Plugins" category.

In order to manage your licenses, follow these steps to activate your licenses to a USB flash drive using Waves Central application on a separate system that supports licensing [Windows 10 / macOS 10.12 (Sierra) and up].

Your v9.3 plugins are now installed and should be available for you in your host application.
