Brand new to Waves Real Time

I want to apologize first, I Am brand new to all of this auto-tuning and I will be asking some very basic questions. I’m hoping this 53 year old dog can learn some new tricks.
I am playing in a band with similarly aged musicians and our vocals are showing the test of time. Looking to use this program in our rehearsals and our very casual gigs. No recording will be done.
In the several videos I’ve watched this program is a plug-in to what appears to be used with a digital mixing board. Can I use this program as a standalone on my Windows 10 laptop? How would I go about using microphones through my computer into Waves real time and then out into a mixing console?
Thanks in advance for any help.
