Waves plugins lag on logic pro 10.7 native Big Sur

Hi, I’m new here:
I’m demoing some V13 plugins on my new mac mini M1 on logic 10.7 under Big Sur (11.6.1).
This was yesterday, the installation was perfect from waves central. I open logic in native, the plugins are scanned and everything is perfect. Incredible the speed and the fluidity (I love some of the plugins that I plan to acquire), I spent several hours testing and I was delighted.

The problem:
Today when I open logic again and try to load some Waves plugin something goes wrong: the plugin take several seconds to open and the presets menu takes another 5 seconds to respond. I did not change or touch anything, but the plugs have considerable lag. Something is wrong.
I say to myself, let’s try logic under Rosetta: Everything is perfect again, huh!
okay! Let’s go back to native logic then: everything is perfect.

I have already tried reinstalling Waves plugins, deleting everything first and nothing, the problem persists. I have even updated Big Sur from 11.6 to 11.6.1 and… nothing.

The thing is like this: for the waves plugins to go well in my system I have to first open logic in rosetta, load a waves plugin (any), close and open logic in native again, and this is how it works. Every time I turn on the mac I have to do that. I need some help, I don’t know what to do. Thanks in advance

Hi @SaraRoberts welcome to our Forum :slight_smile:

Note that our v13 plug-ins were tested and qualified with Logic Pro X 10.6.3.
We are working on qulifing the newer version, however, I don’t have an ETA.

The full list of Officially Supported DAWs can be seen in this link.

This doesn’t mean the plug-ins will not work in newer DAW versions.
Just that as they were not qualified, we don’t have a knowledge of possible issues.

I do suggest contacting our Tech Support team, who might be able to provide tips on how to get this sorted.

If it helps I’ve been using plugins in 10.7 on Big Sur and haven’t come across a plugin display performance issue. Though I am on an Intel Mac. So perhaps the performance is more specifically related to the M1 chip.
