[MacOS] How To Uninstall Waves Entirely

Well, in case you just upgraded from Snow Leopard to Mavericks (like we did ;-) ) and your Waves plugins don’t behave as expected a new installation of Waves could make sense, but first things first. A proper uninstallation does not always work entirely well with Waves’ uninstaller. So in case something goes wrong, follow these steps for manual uninstallation: 

1. Delete the main Waves folder

located at /Applications.

2. Delete the Waves Preferences folder

located at /Users/Your User/Library/Preferences

3. Delete the Waveshell files from these locations:

/Library/Application Support/Digidesign/Plug-Ins
/Library/Audio/Plug-Ins/Components
/Library/Audio/Plug-Ins/MAS
/Library/Audio/Plug-Ins/VST
/Library/Audio/Plug-Ins/VST3

4. Empty Trash

5. You may reinstall NOW ;-)
