TDM No Longer Supported by Waves v9.6 or Later

Mar 25, 2018

As of October 2015, Waves products v9.6 or later (installed via Waves Central) no longer support the TDM format. To run TDM-compatible plugins, you must use the Waves v9.3 offline installer, which only includes Waves products released until September 10, 2015.

Important: If you wish to keep using TDM plugins, do not use the Waves Central application to install any plugins. If you use Waves Central to install or update Waves plugins, your newly installed plugins will not support TDM, and you will also lose TDM support for any Waves plugins previously installed on your computer.

Pro Tools Users: All new Waves plugins and plugin updates are compatible with recent Pro Tools Native versions. If you wish to process your plugins on an external DSP device, you can use the Waves SoundGrid Studio System together with a SoundGrid I/Os and a powerful SoundGrid DSP server. In addition, the DiGiGrid DLS and DiGiGrid DLI DigiLink interfaces will enable you to keep using your old Avid I/Os with Pro Tools 11 and above.

Avid VENUE V3 - V3.1.1 is still supported by some Waves plugins. See compatible plugins.
