Waves Instruments — Locate Samples Folder

Last updated on: 12/26/2017 5:59:30 AM

To play some instruments such as Grand Rhapsody Piano or Bass Slapper, you must download and install at least one of the sample libraries (HD or SD) in addition to the plugin/application. Other Waves instruments are installed with their SD sample library by default.

Possible error message

When launching the instrument, you are prompted to Locate [instrument name] Samples Folder. Not directing to a sample folder results in the instrument showing the following error: “[instrument name] encountered an error during the samples loading”.

Downloading and installing sample libraries

To download the sample libraries to a locatable folder, please refer to the Sample Libraries for Waves Instruments download page and follow the instructions there.
