Waves Plugins on 4K Displays

Last updated on: 11/6/2019 9:09:21 AM

Displaying Waves plugins in UHD (4K) resolution display monitors is not yet officially supported in all host applications.


Waves plugins (latest versions) will display properly on all host applications.


There are some exceptions:

  • In Pro Tools and Media Composer (latest versions), the GUI will show up in its normal dimensions.
  • In the following host applications (latest versions), you will have to disable HiDPI (which converts the host UI to the highest resolution) in order to display the plugin GUI in its regular size:
    • Cubase, Nuendo and WaveLab
    • Studio One
    • FL Studio
    • Reaper
    • Sequoia
  • In the following hosts the GUI will show up smaller or corrupted:
    • Premier and Audition
    • Samplitude
    • Ableton Live
    • Cakewalk by BandLab
