Waves Audio, the world’s leading developer of professional audio signal processing technologies and plugins, announces Waves V15, the latest version of Waves plugins. V15 leverages Waves’ advanced AI and applies the latest audio technologies, letting users create, produce and mix with more tools and features, and keeping the Waves plugin catalog up to date with the latest systems.

Waves V15 delivers more power to all users’ current collection of plugins, with new features enhancing the Waves catalog—including new MIDI mapping, a new parameter locking feature, additional new features in specific plugins, many plugins added to major bundles, and a new and improved version of StudioVerse.

The new StudioVerse, including StudioVerse Instruments: Waves V15 features a significantly enhanced version of StudioVerse, the world’s largest online preset library of audio and instrument chains. This major update adds instrument chains to StudioVerse via the new plugin, StudioVerse Instruments, empowering users to play, browse and audition thousands of custom-designed instrument presets. Furthermore, the new StudioVerse Audio Effects plugin (a renamed, redesigned and enhanced version of Waves StudioRack) delivers enhanced functionality, with an upgraded UI and improved features – all conveniently integrated within a users’ DAW. (StudioVerse Audio Effects is 100% backward compatible with older StudioRack presets and sessions.)

New MIDI mapping: V15 adds new MIDI mapping capabilities to almost all Waves plugins, allowing you to map, save, and recall multiple MIDI controller settings. When you’re on the go and require a compact setup, simply recall the MIDI map you’ve saved for your 25 key controller. If you’re back in the studio and want your 88 keys back, just recall the corresponding MIDI map. Experience a more intuitive and natural workflow, minimizing friction from endless CC assignments and technical hassles.
New parameter locking: V15 also adds parameter locking to 62 Waves plugins, for easy comparison between presets. No need to undergo a tedious adjustment and tweak a preset all over again. You now have a Lock feature that lets you scroll through presets without the need to rebalance your Input or Dry/Wet knobs.

Additional new features in specific plugins: V15 adds a new sidechain filter to the SSL G-Master Bus Compressor, and a new Dual mode to the H-Delay plugin, allowing you to process your tracks more accurately than ever. V15 also includes higher-resolution HiDPI GUI updates on assorted plugins, as well as core stability improvements.

Multiple plugins added to key Waves bundles: By updating to V15, users will have access to several recently released plugins added to Waves’ MercuryHorizonDiamondPlatinum and Gold bundles, significantly increasing their music production and mixing power.

Updating to V15 ensures that Waves plugins users are compatible with the latest DAW and OS requirements. Subscribers to Waves Creative Access plugin subscriptions receive all V15 updates at no additional cost. Owners of perpetual licenses need an active Waves Update Plan for their plugins or bundles in order to update.

With new AI tools, extra plugins and added features to Waves’ existing catalogue, this update gives more power and control to users and guarantees future-proof reliability. Users can trust a mix opened in 10 years’ time, that will open and run smoothly and sound just as it did on the day you mixed it. V15 provides and enriches your workflow with more Waves plugins to fuel your sound and inspiration.
