WAVES License Error on a plug I've never installed

Hi there,
I am having a sporadic error on a couple of not so recent Logic Projects that has me stumped.

When loading said projects, I get the error -

" Abbey Road Saturator does not have a license.
Please check that you have a valid license, then click ‘Rescan Licenses’.
To continue without Abbey Road Saturator, click ‘Skip’.
To continue without other unlicensed plugins, click ‘Skip All’."

Now, I have never installed these and obviously there are no instances of them in the project or the undo queue, however. Have tried doing a “Save copy as…” in Logic to rebuild the project, but nothing seems to be able to stop this coming up every time.
Haver also cleaned out, un-installed all WAVES and re-installed to no avail.

Anyone have any ideas?


Hi @mattrixx

I suggest rescanning plugins in Logic, it should be fine after.

Please follow the instructions at the How to Find Your Plugins in Logic Pro X page.

If the issue persists, I suggest contacting our Tech Support team, they will be happy to assist.

I hope this information will help.

Have a nice day :slight_smile:

Thanks Shay,
However, I have been through these steps multiple times and as mentioned it only arrises in certain projects,.
