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.


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.
