I reinstalled windows 7 64bit to a new hdd and installed my ableton 9.1 back. but waves v5 bundle i had (which worked completely fine prviously) started giving error msges and wont show up. i have custom folder for plugins so everything goes in to that folder. but waves seems not respond. update windows also. and still no sign. im very confused cos - the same pack worked fine last week and now dont. any help pls.
Are you saying that you kept all of your plugins in a separate folder and just copied them across?
Some plugins don't like that approach and require a reinstall.
no no - i manage a central hub for all plugins. so everything is in that folder- its easier for me to navigate and manage. after i reinstalled windows - i had to do eevrything all over again. but no matter how mny times i installed the waves plugins it fails to load and crashes at daw launch. this didnt happen previosly to the windows reinstall. so i decided to update windows. to check if there was an missing update in the new system, but still its the same.
I just paid the full price for this thing not long before Christmas..but it was worth it. It sounds great on drums and vocals out of the box, but if you spend a little time tweaking things, you can get some really nice sounds out of this plug. Not to shabby for under £10!
Tbh, I'm not sure why, but this and few other programs seem to be continuously rotating around the web, from one site to another, on offer for hardly anything at all. That said, don't let the bargain basement price put you off..Xpand!2 sounds amazing and comes with one HUGE preset bank, that touches nearly every genre out there, so you're sure to find something that will inspire you while producing.
