WAVES VST Plugins not showing up on AUDACITY

Post by pennyroyaltea94 » Thu Apr 05, 2018 7:43 am

OKAY So I installed WAVES ABBEY ROAD STUDIOS EQ VST last week,

I just bought the WAVES C4 Compressor and it won't show up on my new PLUGINS List , what is wrong ?

I even copied the C4 .DLL to the audacity list and won't still enable right.

Even if you have a 64-bit operating system, Audacity only accepts 32-bit versions of plugins.
Also not all VSTs are compatible with Audacity: some don't work properly in Audacity even if enabled.

Gmulti is a free muti(3)band compressor which works in Audacity in Windows.

Looks like I wasted $29 this isn't loading right or works with AUDACITY ,

Well the COMPRESS you suggested looks like it has all the elements I am looking for .

Thanks.

it works now ,

Online Staff told me this.


Press the [Win Key] + R, type in %appdata% and hit Enter.
Go to Waves Audio and drag the Preferences folder to your desktop (this folder can be removed after troubleshooting is over).
Launch AUDACITY, create a new session with a Supported Sample Rate and try to load your Waves plugins.

C:\Program Files\Audacity\Plug-Ins
to

Code: Select all

C:\Users\<YourNameHere>\AppData\Roaming\audacity\Plug-Ins
