Update to the Latest Version

Last updated on: 10/1/2015 10:16:15 AM

You can update your Waves products to the latest version for free, as long as they’re covered by Waves Update Plan. If your products are not covered, you can renew coverage here.
You can also update to the latest version by upgrading to a more comprehensive Waves bundle. All new purchases and upgrades include one full year of Waves Update plan.

A Guide to V9 & V10 Versions and Updates

Keep in mind
V9 and V10 software can run on the same system, as long as you don't install two versions (V9 and V10) of the same plugin simultaneously. Each plugin should only be installed in either V9 or V10. For example, version 9 of J37 Tape and version 10 of Torque can run on the same system. On the other hand, version 9 of H-Reverb and version 10 of H-Reverb can't.
Use this guide to find the exact set of instructions to update, activate and install your Waves licenses by checking your current license versions, activation status and Waves Update Plan coverage.
