Last updated on: 12/10/2020 11:59:39 AM

Learn how to update your eMotion LV1, SuperRack, SoundGrid Studio and StudioRack licenses and software to Version 12.

  1. Ensure that your system supports Waves V12 applications: eMotion LV1 | SuperRack | SoundGrid Studio | StudioRack.
  2. Before updating StudioRack to V12, ensure that your DAW supports StudioRack V12.
  3. If your application or plugin licenses are covered by the Waves Update Plan, update them to V12 for free. If your licenses are not covered by the Waves Update Plan, renew your coverage first, then update.
  4. Once your licenses are updated, install & activate your V12 application and plugin software:
    • Launch Waves Central and log in. (Download Central here, if you do not have it installed yet.)
    • Click the Install Products page, and select the My Products tab to view the Waves applications for which you have a license.
    • Select the products you wish to install and review the selections in the Summary section.
    • Click Install and Activate.

By default, a license will be activated to the host computer’s hard drive. You can also choose to activate it to a USB flash drive. Use the Target Device for Licenses panel to select where you want to send the license.

Important! Waves V12 applications support V11 & V12 plugins only.
If your plugin licenses are of earlier versions, you will need to update them to V12 (Waves Update Plan required) to run them in Waves V12 applications.
