Waves' GTR3 and Ardour 6.5?

Does anybody know if Waves’ GTR3 plugins work with Ardour 6.5 for Windows?

Looking for advice before I buy. Thanks!


They have demo’s for all their plugins. Just try it out and see for yourself.

I’m running some waves plugins on my windows machine for what it’s worth.

Thanks for the info. So let me ask you this; how does the Waves’ installation work with the fact that Ardour requires plugins to be in “C:\Users\Bob\Documents\Plugins\VST” ?

Yes, waves plugins are known to work with Ardour on Windows and macOS.

Except some users have issues on some machines the GUI comes up flipped (https://forum.waves.com/t/plug-ins-gui-upside-down/2148/3) , so best try before you buy.

You can specify custom locations for VST2 in Ardour > Preferences > VST > VST2 Plugin Path. But overall you may prefer their VST3 versions, which are installed in the standard VST3 path.

Side-note. recent screenshot on https://ardour.org/whatsnew.html shows a Waves VST3 on Windows:

Thanks. That’s great. I did not know that Ardour 6.5 supports vst3 plugins. It doesn’t appear to state that fact in the Ardour documentation. Thanks again.
