So I got one of the bundles from Waves. Download, installation, activation, all a breeze, not a single hiccup.
But nothing showed up in my PT11. :(
After a quick search, it turns out that an extra installation is required for Waves plugins to work with PT11 and that can be d/l'ed freely on the Waves website.
It installs a "wave-shell" plugin, which sounds a bit like a wrapper for the plugins and I'd hope that those plugins will be rewritten into native AAX64 soon. But for now, it works! #protools11 #waves #pt11
