Waves Audio has announced V13, the latest version of company’s plugins that are supported in Apple M1 computers running M1-compatible DAWs as well as in the just-released Microsoft Windows 11 operating system, and further, select plugins include HiDPI graphics.
The V13 updates join the new features recently released in Waves V12 and V12.7 plugins, including resizable plugin GUIs, the new Preset Browser with instant text search, the new User Preset System, and more. To update to V13, current plugins need to be covered by the Waves Update Plan, the care and support plan for the company’s products that comes free for one year with every new plugin or bundle purchase and is renewable at any time afterwards.
Owners of products covered by the update plan also get:
— Second licenses for any covered products, for the duration of their coverage; second licenses can be used on a different computer, without having to move licenses back and forth between devices.
— Premium tech support, including phone, email and personal remote assistance via TeamViewer.
— Free access to Waves Premium Masterclasses plus exclusive discounts on Mix With The Masters VOD masterclasses that present GRAMMY-winners Young Guru, Chris Lord-Alge, Andrew Scheps, Timbaland, Andy Wallace, Jaycen Joshua, Tony Maserati, Sylvia Massy, Finneas (Billie Eilish), Leslie Brathwaite, Lu Diaz and more.
The company states that it dedicates significant effort and software development resources in order to ensure that the plugins that users have invested in, whether recently or years ago, will remain compatible with all the latest major DAWs and operating systems.
