    Hi All,

    I downloaded the waves complete bundle today and tried installing but while the plugins says "successfully validadated" in logic and it opens too its just blank and black... It seems to be some kind of graphical issue... i tried googling but I can't find any solution...

    Used to have a problem with Nvidia drivers. Try switching to the generic windows video driver and see if the gui is now on the plugins.

    Since the OP says 'Logic' it's fairly likely they're on a mac and so you get what you get for graphics driver.

    Well done, Wuzzle. Beat me to it.
    @jimmyjohn If TL;DR :winker:, then your Mac graphics card doesn't support Metal, which is needed for the most recent Waves version.

    Thanks everyone, That link clearly explained what was going on wheras I was reading other forums and getting nowehere beforehand. I'm happy to downgrade to v11 of waves so I tried uninstall and now I'm giving it a reinstall so fingers crossed it goes smoothly. I will revert.
