Waves V13 on 4K Displays

Mac:

Waves plugins (latest version) will display properly as 2015 Mac Pro computers (or newer) are required.

Windows:

Waves V13 fully supports HiDPI in the following host applications:

  • Cubase 11
  • Nuendo 11
  • WaveLab 10
  • Studio One 5
  • REAPER
  • Bitwig Studio
  • FL Studio - Full support when using one screen. When plugins are detached and moved between screens, graphic issues may occur.

In the following host applications, HiDPI is not "true", rather Auto-Scaling is controlled by the host application:

  • Ableton Live
  • CakeWalk By BandLab
  • Reason
  • Maschine
  • Komplete Kontrol
  • Pyramix
  • Samplitude
  • Sequoia

The following host applications will not auto-scale plugins:

  • Pro Tools - Recommended setting "Override HiDPi scaling by system" in the application properties > Compatibility.
  • Audition - Plugins will load at 100% regardless of system settings (small GUI)
  • Premiere - Plugins will load at 100% regardless of system settings (small GUI)
