Waves plugins some are working | some I fixed | some are not working


Sep 5, 2020
@Shaneee some of the waves plugins are working out of the box, I patched some plugins and some are not working

I downloaded from : https://www.torrentmac.net/waves-12-complete-v19-10-20/

Crashed validation - are fixable
Not validated due to internal error - are not fixable

The main problem is intel fast memset
But i managed to patch for some plugins

The plugins that I patched by Adobe fixes
Eg:: in sheps omnis channel, z-noise,metafilter,cla mixdown,gw series,etc
This plugin crashed because os genericintelprocessor.dylib and avxintelprocessor.dylib
So I patched with
sudo perl -i -pe 's|\x90\x90\x90\x90\x56\xE8\x6A\x00|\x90\x90\x90\x90\x56\xE8\x3A\x00|sg' $FILE
sudo perl -i -pe 's|\x90\x90\x90\x90\x56\xE8\x4A\x00|\x90\x90\x90\x90\x56\xE8\x1A\x00|sg' $FILE

And now they are working perfectly

And the plugins that are Not validated due to internal error
Eg::abbey road tg mastering chain,ovox, renaissance channel,h-reverb hybrid,etc
I am not able to patch
I tried to patch those plugins but also it comes as Not validated due to internal error

when logic is launched by using mkl_debug_cpu_type=5 the all plugins that are Not validated due to internal error are successfully validated but not not showing in work space(in project - audio fx- audio units - waves -<plugin>) and also taking lot of time to load logic pro x

I installed big sur 11.0.1
I installed waves 12
I use logic pro x

My pc::
Asrock x570 steel legend
16 gb ram

Please please see through it

Hi Jesnith!
I got the same issue and I try to find a way to make the waves vst "SoundShifter Pitch" work.
I can't find this vst, neither in any of your Screenshots or in the list of not working plugins below. It is usually part of the waves collections.

Could you check and tell me if you managed to make this vst work? Would help me a lot! trying to solve this for days, and I don't even know if it is possible.

Next thing to try is via VM and hope it works... Did you try that already?

Thanks for your effort so far!

P.S.: In case "soundShifter" is not included in V12, could you tell me what I need to change in your patches, so they work with older Waves Versions V11/V10?
