  • Waves Diamond 5.0 Native for Mac - need help...

    I just purchased a legit used copy of Waves Diamond Bundle Native 5.0, and am wondering why it won't stay loaded on my computer. I'll reset my i-Lock, and then load the software, but then when I turn my computer off and back on again, the bundle won't load. What am I doing wrong? Am I missing a step? Any suggestions? I'm running a Mac G5 with dual 2.7GHz processors with 1.5 expanded memory with a Glyph GT50 external hard drive. I have Pro Tools LE (Version 6.9.2) rack w/ factory bundle.

    I've heard Waves will blow you off if you didn't buy a new version from them, and Sweetwater isn't any help, even though I bought my computer and a crap-load of other stuff from them. When I was considering purchasing this copy off Ebay, some guy (a Waves rep / spy, no doubt) was asking me all kinds of questions about the copy I was purchasing, about the owner, etc. . Seems to me that the folks at Waves are real pricks. I may be wrong, but that's the impression I get. I almost wish I'd gone with another software manufacturer with other plug-ins. Anyway, I need some help! Any input appreciated. I don't want to have to go through the upload process every time I want to use Pro Tools. Oh, and I am basically a "Mac newbie".

    Which hard drive are you installing the Waves plug-ins onto?

      I'm loading on my Mac hard-drive. Should I be loading the software on my external hard-drive?

        No the Waves bundle should be on the main drive. Check out the Waves forums;maybe you can get some help there.

            I've been out of town a couple of days and have been very busy with my day job. I will try to deal with some of the issues this afternoon or tomorrow. If anything arises, I'll be sure to let you know. Thanks!
