Waves V9 plugins incompatible with Mac OS Big Sur?

Hi all,

I tried installing my V9 Waves plugins using the legacy installer and have had no luck. I’m prompted with the following message in Waves Central when attempting to offline install via the legacy installer: “This installer is not supported on your OS.” Has anyone encountered a similar issue and is there a fix that doesn’t require purchasing the upgrade to the latest version? Am I doing something incorrectly?



Only V11&V12 are compatible with Big Sur.
You can try V9/V10.
It is not officially supported, but it does not mean it won’t work. It just means it was not tested well enough to call it compatible.
Apple M1 chipsets aren’t supported officially by Waves as yet.

Here’s the official bit…
