    Don't want to make more fuss over this, but he did say:

    "I feel bad for all those who have complaints with Waves but I've never had any real negative experiences."

    Ya,  I am probably overreacting. I just get tired of people thinking that because they do not have any problems, other shouldn't either.

    Don't count on The Resonator and the new T-RackS TASCAM Tape Collection (nor its single processors) being added any time soon.  And soon is all we've got at this point, it seems to have slowed down so let's get it to 25,000 for those who do need that last freebie! :)

    We are in the sub 1000 range now with 17 days to go. I don't think there is much danger of not making that last freebie.

    As I stated, I don't discount your complaints and I understand some people have had problems

    You said, you were not sure what all the fuss was about. Your statement implies that people are fussing for nothing. Do you now know what people are fussing about, or do you not care as long as it works for you?

    Anyone with more than one purchase clue me in on what's going on?

    When I added a second purchase they lumped in freebies choices together.  Meaning that when I clicked on a freebie option red button it would then display two or three freebies options as a secondary menu.  Seems like they have a limit how many they can display so start lumping after that.  See if that helps. 

    What Kevin said. The promotions starting at the bottom will contain your missing freebies.

    I can only talk about my experience with Waves and CbB/Sonar. I don't use S1. And it's hardly a false narrative if it's true for my situation.


    I get that but I don't often add more Waves plugins nowadays because I have all the ones I need. It only takes a couple of seconds to scan the shell and I have about 85 Waves plugins installed so that seems efficient to me. Their plugins are too good and get too much use for me to worry about a shell scan. I know other folks have had issues but I'm  only talking from my experience with Waves and it has been a positive one for me. YMMV

    The false narrative is that WaveShell all works fine and has for years. By saying so, you discount other peoples' experiences.  How hard is it to understand that those making a fuss have had problems in the past that could have been avoided if WaveShell had not been used?

    Exactly. I've never really had a problem with Waves in the 10 plus years I've used their plugins. I keep the licenses for Waves and all the other companies on a thumb drive and move between computers. I'm not sure what all the fuss is about using a shell. It all works fine and has for years.

    I WUPped for the first time this past spring. No issues or problems. V13 is installed and working fine. Before the WUP I had some V9, V10 and V11 plugins all working nicely together. I feel bad for all those who have complaints with Waves but I've never had any real negative experiences.

    This is a false narrative. Just because it has worked for you with no problems over the years does not mean it all works fine for everyone. My recent experience with V13 and Studio One proves that. I did everything I was supposed to, to move to V13 and it failed. I ended up having to reinstall all my Waves plugins, not just the ones I updated to V13. I would not have had to do that if the plugins had been separate DLLs.

    For anyone else having problems with the v13 plugins and Studio One, try this procedure from Waves support. It worked for me:

    Close any running apps.
    Go to Control Panel > Programs & Features.
    Scroll down through the list of apps and select each of the Microsoft visual ++ Redistributable files that you see there, starting from the 2012 Redistributable and up.
    Go over each one, click on Modify, and hit Repair.
    Do this procedure for all the redistributables that you see there and once done restart the computer.
    After the restart go to Waves Central's Settings and run the Waves Cleanup.
    Once done re-launch Waves Central and install your plugins again.

    I suspect this is overkill. They are just covering all their bases. The last step (reinstall) was what worked for me. Didn't have to reboot or anything. The fact that the plugins worked in other DAWs indicated that it was not a redistributable problem.

    I wish I had read this entire thread before updating. Same problem here.

    I received a response from support. They were really helpful...not. They told me to do a rescan. It was the first thing I did after updating my plugins. 

    I did my own sleuthing. I found that if I moved my V11 and V12 WaveShells out C:\Program Files\Common Files\VST3, and did a rescan, the V13 plugins started working. When I moved them back in again and did a rescan, the V13 plugins stopped working. So I did a resinstall of all my Waves plugins and that seems to have fixed the problem.

    Geez- Me too.  None of the plugs work on Windows 21H1 in Studio One 5.4, and about 75% won't load in Bitwig 4.0.5  To top it off, they have a real nice looking bug report form on the Waves site that won't allow itself to be filled in.  I am sure the word will get to them, but they really ...... this release.

    Oh good. Misery loves company. I am glad it is not just me then.

    I was able to file a bug report using the Contact Tech Support form.

    I know this is mostly Cakewalk users, but I am hearing some people discussing setup in other DAWs. We have instructional videos for most DAWs here. If anyone would like to send me instructions or a video showing routing with Cakewalk, that would be great, as we do not typically test on Cakewalk and are not Cakewalk users ourselves. My email is josh@waproduction.com

    You would actually be surprised at how few Cakewalk users there are on the Deals sub-forum. I would hazard a guess that most of us are here for the Deals and not for the Cakewalk discussion. So it might worth you while to monitor the Deals sub-forum in the future. Lots of great discussion happens here (and some bitching of course).

    Here as well. 

    InstaScale is such a weird beast. It requires you to learn a whole new way of playing a keyboard. I am not sure who the target audience is. InstaChord is a strumming engine. However there are better, more versatile  and easier to use strumming engines that come with OTS, Indiginus and other virtual guitars.

    Is there a minihost that can load Waves plugins?
    I.E. something lightweight like SaviHost...
    Just something to load a plugin so you can check GUI, etc.

    Not interested in minihosts that can't load Waves plugins as I already got a number of them...

    Apparently there is something called shell2vst that separates the waveshell files into single dll files. You could then use Savihost.

    I'm not exactly sure how the cross grade works (as I was able to get each of those at the $199 level myself - but did have a number of related and semi-related plugins already).

    I can confirm the cross grade on on Miroslav 2 and T-RacksS 5 MAx is $299, as I wasn't able to get either of those despite having a number of T-Racks Plugins as well as the Lighter version of Miroslave already and I bought in at the $200 level as one of my group buys.

    This has been explained many times before. Crossgrade pricing kicks in as soon as you purchase any IKM product worth more than $99. It is that simple. If you are a new IKM customer, until you purchase something worth $99+, you pay the full price. After that point, you pay the crossgrade price no matter what you buy.

    Hi Peter thks  ..... i think iwasn't clear , i don't want to sell what i'm gonna buy , i wanna sell what i already have in my account from previous pucchases and so i was asking if for exemple i bought Lurssen Console  and got several freee plugin , i could choose lurseen in this group buy as a freebee and resell the old one knowing that the old one was used to unlok freebees ....(don't know if i'm clear lol )

    You’re clear. My question too.

    You cannot select something you already own unless you transfer it to someone else first. I am assuming you bought Lurssen in a previous sale, perhaps another group buy which unlocked a bunch of freebies. You are wondering what happens to the freebies you got in the previous sale if you were to sell the Lurssen. Is that correct?

    Peter, is there an easy way for us to figure out what we don’t already  have in Amplitube? I tried looking at the Custom Shop function for that, but it doesn’t look like it’s necessarily catching everything.  Also,  are  you saying eg. if 3 years ago I purchased a license for A, which allowed me to get a free or reduced price for B and C, I cannot now sell my license to A without losing B and C?  Not sure how I could even retrace that history, and if that’s the case, I probably will have five to ten unused pics when this is all over. I would gladly use 2 or 3 freebies alone for the mems mic that goes with ARC. 

    You can do it in Amplitube itself. 


    Click on the icon below the three lines until you see an x in a circle (like above) and it will only show the gear you do not own.

    Ah right that makes a bit more sense then.

    I know it doesn't accumulate. but this makes a bit more sense. So you can qualify because you have a 99 product, but the upgrade price can be as high as IK makes it and that is unlocked for me.

    Still weird that my entry level is higher than the MSRP. Better claim some 299 freebies while I can.

    This is not right. Where are you seeing that your entry level is higher than the MSRP?

    Hmm that is weird, because the Amplitude 5 upgrade was never in mijn Promotions dropdown. And I have 2 99.99+ products. Same goes for the other upgrades. (Yeah I did get the CE versions with a lower buy in but now I'm getting the bigger versions with my new buy-in, I should have listened to Larry to wait it out).

    Also, (and I'm too lazy to make a screenshot, so 'dude, trust me'), this is what my promotions tab says:

    "Your UNO Drum purchase allows you to redeem bonus content from this dropdown list, valued at $/€299.99 or less! "

    The GB does not accumulate. Buying in twice gets you two entries at the $99 level but does not unlock anything at the $199 level. Your UNO drum now qualifies you for $299 level so you can now get AmpliTube 5. 

    Also, when Peter says that you qualify for AmpliTube 5 Upgrade from any 99.99+ product, the upgrade price is not $99. It is $199 (I think). It is what I stated before, any $99+ purchase qualifies you for the crossgrade/upgrade price of any IKM product.
