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

Follow these steps if you inadvertently updated your Waves software version and wish to revert to Waves v9.92 plugins and v9.92-compatible Waves host applications (SoundGrid Studio, MultiRack, and eMotion LV1) using our dedicated offline installer.

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), as long as the product/s in question exist in that software version.
  • V9 licenses can be found and managed in the Licenses page of Waves Central. Learn how to activate licenses.
  • Products released after May 3, 2018 will not be added to the v9.92 installer. See these Release Notes for more information.
  • To check if a plugin exists in v9.92, scroll to the bottom of the version's download page.
