Need help with Waves Plug-ins in Pro Tools 9

    I got the Waves v8 Demo to test some of the Plug-ins, that I want to buy
    if I like 'em, but there are a few of them which don't start properly and cause my DAW to crash and I wonder why. Maybe you can help.

    I am using Windows 7 (64-Bit) with Pro Tools 9. I installed the Mercury-Bundle and many of the plug-ins work really fine but some of them just won't load into an insert slot in Pro Tools.

    Instead when I try to load the plug-in Pro Tools crashes. Also when I insert plug-ins from the CLA-series I can load them but there is no output signal from the plug-in. They seem to be dead although they indicate the input signal. I tried to re-install the Bundle a few times and also to install only individual plug-ins but it didn't help.

    I can't contact Waves Support because I haven't bought anything from Waves yet. But I want to buy if the plug-ins would work. This way I can't test them. Any ideas how to solve the problem?

    Have you tried trashing the prefs in PT?

    Have you tried contacting Waves? If you have registered at their site and downloaded the demo I think they offer support. My experience has been that their demo mode works pretty seamlessly.

    Actually, they probably sent you an email in regards to this. I got one days after installing. They would be the best to help. You could also try the DUC. But, I may try and install the demo for CLA and Mercury to see what happens.

    I just tried installing CLA and for some reason it didn't recognize my iLok. ProTools runs fine though. I can't install Mercury because I don't have a TDM system.

    Problem has been solved!

    Waves Support was really fast and qualified. I had to change the default OS language
    to English (US). That's it.
