How to install Waves v9 plugin on macOS Catalina

Postby dbfs » Fri Nov 27, 2020 5:16 pm

Hi Folks,
I had to install a new HDD on my system and I went with Catalina.

Not wanting to pay waves $240 for the Waves Update Plan, I came across this article.

I was just wondering if anyone here had tried this type of approach or if it looks suspect.

Might this be a solution?

It's only a solution if it works. ;)

All it's really doing is changing the files that tell the installer whether your OS qualifies for installing it or not - it doesn't say anything about whether those plugin versions do actually work on your system.

If you want to try, give it a try. Make backups before you start.

Hi Desmond,

I backed up and tried it and it worked. Very happy.

This might help some other folk if they are wondering.

When a page no longer exists, the first thing you should think to try is to Wayback Machine that URL.
