Delete VST Plugins if I only use AU?

I have limited hard drive space on my Mac and I would like to delete all the VST and VST3 versions of Waves, as I only use AU.

Occasionally in the past I have come across AU plugins that require VST versions to be installed (resource sharing, presumably). Is this the case for any Waves plugins, or can I safely delete the VST/VST3 versions?

Just chatted to Waves support and they say yes, Waveshells can be deleted if not being used - leaving this up in case it’s useful to anyone else.

@ric.levy,

Glad that worked out, do note that those Waveshells files will hardly take up any space on your computer.

There were about 10 of them at 40-45 megs each in the VST folder so not far off half a GB for me.
