I’ve upgraded to Audacity v 3.0.4 on my WIndows 10 64 bit OS.
I was successfully using the Waves loudness meter (WLM) VST plugin on the 32-bit version of Audacity. I did have to fuss around a bit to get it to work, and Waves support said they don’t support Audacity.
With the 64-bit version of Audacity this plugin won’t activate. I have obtained the 64-bit version of the plugin and the Waves folder containing it is located in the C:/program files/Audacity/Plug-Ins folder.
The plug-in shows up when I go to Effect (or Analyze) and click Add / Remove Plug-ins. There are five lines pointing to these 5 files:
When I enable them and click OK I get error messages:
WLM Plus.dll failed to register: Could not load the library
WLM.dll failed to register: Could not load the library
Then I get a window that says “Enabling effect or command” and it lists the other WLM.dll, WaveShell1-VST 12.7_x64.dll, WavesLib1.14_12.7_Win64.dll files; then it flashes another error window for a fraction of a second, too quick for me to read it.
I’m wondering if there is a way to get this to work or if I should go back to a 32-bit version of Audacity and the plug-in.
