Waves Audio Ltd. just announced the release of version 9 of their Waves plugins. Finally Waves V9 will support 64bit architectures and in contrast to their predecessors Waves V9 will not require the controversial Pace iLok-Dongle anymore.
They rather introduce the “Waves License Center“. However, customers used to iLoks can keep using them. It is expected the software based license system will bring a major improvement of the plugins’ processing speed.
Waves Audio Ltd. is a leading developer of audio processing technologies with development facilities in Tennessee (USA), Tel Aviv (Israel) and Shenzen (China). Waves Audio was among the first to offer filter solutions to the vuvuzela noises at the 2010 FIFA World Cup.
