Waves VST Plug-Ins::
Anyone knows how to integrate the Waves SSL4000 GChannel(s) in a Max Patch (vst~ ??)::
Can’t find the Plugs in the VST Folder, Waves Folder or HD but all are present in Logic(AU) and Ableton(AU/VST)::
if I recall correctly, Waves plugins are actually directX plugins installed somewhere on the system that are loaded through a file named something like waveshell.dll in the vstplugins folder.
Not sure if this makes it completely impossible to use them in Max or just slightly impossible
Hope this helps,
Hello Klaas Jan,
thx you are right with the Waveshell.dll. I contact Waves and ask the Tech Support::
Greetings from Cologne!
.:: "Messing around with any of the Waves plug-ins in Max Patch it is impossible.
Waves Tech-Support Team" ::.
You can always try accessing the Waves plugins via the dx wrapper by xlutop.
now i am back to max 5 and i see ~ integrating waveshells in max 5 is now very simple.
vst~ plug[open waveshell] and message subnames [" "] … great all my wave bundles(gold, l3 and ssl4000) are working in max.
I’m trying to use my Waves reverb plugins in a MaxMSP patch as well.
I know I have to first open the "WaveShell-VST 7.0.vst", using the "plug" message to vst~. This works fine.
But then how do I now load the actual plugin? I tried sending messages vst~ with the name or the full path of the plugin, but that didn’t work.
I’m using Max 5.1.5, OS X 10.6.4, Waves 7
Any hints would be greatly appreciated!
Thanks in advance,
Try this example patch it should have enough in it to get you going.
There are print objects in the patchers to echo the messaging look at the patchers carefully.
Main thing is the path of your waveshell plus the plugin ID code which needs to be supplied to the vst object. You get the codes from the printids message. The ID list used to come out of the 7th outlet but on my system that doesn’t seem to be happening anymore. They will be in parenthesis in the Max Window for example:
vst~: C1 comp-gate Mono: 1129270605 (COMM)
Generally I get Waves to work with MSP but sometimes it is a bit temperamental.
Hope this helps

Thank you very much for that, exactly the explanation I was looking for!
did meanwhile anybody find a solution how to save WaveShell presets within Max?
The Waves StudioRack Plugin Chainer can be the solution.
It is CPU hungry and graphic is slow but it works.
Pity, Waves doesn’t support MAX/MSP as a PlugIn Host.
Big thanks to Chris D. Using his example patch I was able to load a Waves v9.3 vst onto max.
On Mac (El Capitan) I had to change the waves version to the one I have.
On Windows I had to change the syntax for his two messages to "C/Program Files/VSTPlugIns/WaveShell-VST 9.2_x64.dll"
I then ran the print IDs object he has to find the plug I wanted to use, then replaced the messages he had in the guts patcher for the individual names.
