The core experience of using any of these plugins is centered on ease of use, accurate reproduction of advanced audio effects, faster scanning, faster loading, and of course, faster processing. Optimized for use on the latest versions of Windows OS, and available as both standalone tools and integrated plugins for other DAWs, Waves Complete will ensure that your audio production will remain not only in line with all the major advances in the audio editing field but also fully compatible with all the major systems and updates arriving in the future.

The latest version of this audio plugin package introduces many new features, including support for new UI themes, real-time frequency analyzers, brand new UI for R-Channel and channel strip plugin, expansion of plugin offering, more than 100 artist presets, and much more.

Waves Central is compatible with a wide variety of DAW application hosts on both PC and Mac. This includes (but is not limited to) Premiere Pro, Ableton Live, Pro Tools, Cubase 10, Audition 13, Studio One Professional 4, Media Composer 2019, and many others. It is important to note that because of the high-quality focus of Wave tools, users are required to access these plugins only on 64-bit systems. Make sure you are running 64-bit Windows OS before trying to install the latest version of the Waves app.

Installation and Use

The software has grown to a considerable size over the past several years when the entire plugin package was reinvented with the addition of numerous advanced tools. Today, this plugin package clocks in at but under 5GB in size, requiring users to spend a little time for both download and integration into their work system. The installation procedure will try to detect all the DAW apps present in your system.

As for the system requirements, they are not as modest as you would expect. Developers of this advanced audio software package recommend Waves to be installed on PCs with strong CPUs (Intel Core i3 / i5 / i7 / Xeon / AMD Quad-Core), at least 4 GB of system memory (8 GB is highly recommended), and at least 8 GB of free storage space.
