Learn how to move your Waves licenses between different devices.
Waves Central offers two simple ways to move your licenses:
The easiest way to move your Waves licenses between multiple computers is to activate them on a USB flash drive. Once that's done, you will be able to run your Waves plugins on any computer to which the USB flash drive is connected, as long as the software for those Waves plugins is installed on that computer.
Your Waves licenses are now activated to your USB flash drive. You can now connect it to any computer and use Waves products installed on that computer.
Step #1 – On the Studio A computer
Step #2 - On the Studio B computer
Your Waves licenses are now activated on the computer in Studio B.
If the computer to which you have moved your license/s is used by multiple users (e.g. in a commercial studio, school system, rental system, etc.), we highly recommend running Waves Central’s Version Organizer after moving licenses, to make sure your license version/s and the installed software version/s are aligned.
The Version Organizer will correlate the plugin software installed on your system to the licenses you have activated.
The instructions in this article require access to the computer on which the licenses are currently activated. If you no longer have access to that computer, please refer to this article.
