Hi @musicteccarl,

Note that Logic Pro X 10.5, is not yet Officially Supported with our plug-ins.

We are still qualifying and testing our plug-ins to support it, however, I don’t have an ETA at the moment.

Please follow the steps in this link to refresh the Waves Preferences folder and rescan Logic.

If the issue is not solved, please contact our beloved Tech Support team to advise.


It is odd as Waves seems to be functioning fine in 10.5 for me, well, 10.5.1. Logic itself has a few hiccups that need addressing, but so far I haven’t come across an Waves related issues.

This doesn’t mean there aren’t any issues, but I would suggest start by making sure everything is up to date. Try “rebuilding the cache”, so to speak. As that was the first thing I did after updating and could be the reason why I’m not encountering any issues. Maybe.

To do that j ust follow the directions that @OmryWaves pasted above.
