    This got my interest but I notice the system spec. states 8GB of space on system drive.

    I can't believe the plugin is that big, so it makes me wonder what other stuff might get loaded onto my system. I don't have any other Waves stuff and (from what I've read) I'm concerned there might be a load of bloatware installed as a part of the Waves Central software.

    It's not a competition.

    Yeah your probably right, I haven’t used any Waves gear before so not sure what they are like with regards to bloatware.

    Was hoping that someone here was using it already to see what they thought  =)

    I've got a few Waves plugs (3 so far) - I haven't noticed any bloatware or bad stuff.

    8GB of free space on the system drive seems to be a standard requirement for all Waves plugins.

    Has anyone installed the Scheps plugin (without having prior Wave installations) that can confirm the installation size? My concern centres around whether (something like) the complete suite of Waves stuff is installed, even when you just buy one plugin and it just sits there as a 'foot in the door' to tempt purchase of licences for their other plugins.

    I'm interested in the plugin, but 8GB is a deal breaker and would take up too much of my 256 SSD system drive. It seems an insane size given that, by comparison, the system requirements for Helix Native are only 100MB.

    It's not a competition.

    @stratman3142 ;;

    Have had a look on the Waves website & instructions are as follows;
    1. Download and install Waves Central for Mac | Windows.
      Downloads not included in Waves Central: Tracks LiveWaves for DiGiCo, and Waves for Venue.
      If you already have Waves Central installed, skip to step 2.
    2. Launch Waves Central.
      Windows: via the desktop shortcut or Start Menu > All Programs > Waves. 
      Mac: Applications > Waves Central.
    3. Log into Waves Central using your Waves account information.
    4. Click on Easy Install & Activate.
    5. Select the products you wish to install & activate on this computer.
    6. Click on the Install & Activate button.

    Watched a few videos earlier today (Skip to 17.22 for the reviewers overall pros & cons) & think that I might have to download the demo (7 days of use)

    Thanks. My concern is the installation size on the system drive.

    I'm still miffed with IK Multimedia after I purchased some T-Racks plugins and the installation manager installed the complete set, including loads of stuff I hadn't purchased, which comes up as unlicenced. As a point of principle, I avoid software that might add loads of stuff I didn't request that clogs up my system drive.

    My music computer runs very smoothly and I'm more fussy about what goes onto my system drive than what I eat :)

    It's not a competition.

  • @duotone thanks for the info and I might have gone for this one, but I've just used up my VST budget for a while in purchasing Helix Native while the 30% discount applies.

    It will. Waves sales go in cycles.

    Also given there are a few Scheps plugins it’s possible they’ll do a Scheps bundle at some point like they do with CLA etc

  • I've just got it and it is awesome.  I love the way everything is layed out.  It makes it easier to tool about with stuff.  Well worth the money.

    Cheers, will stay patient.

    Have another 4 days left on the demo & have to say that I do like it.  The highlight feature which lights up controls Scheps & some of the other mixers focus on is a good learning tool.

    Waves plugs are excellent. I used about a dozen of them, quite expensive but they often have sales.

    The reason for the space requirement is you download a central waves programme and access your registered through it.

    I've not tried this one, but I have the Scheps 73 and its awesome for MS processing.

    Prices have changed earlier today, so if there was any plug-ins you were thinking of getting have a look as there may be a saving on what you were after.

    Unfortunately the Scheps Omni Channel is still $149.

    I have Omni because I’m a Mercury owner.
    It is ok but not up there with the best channels out there, imho.

    UAD are doing much better stuff, so are a Slate and Brainworx.

    Cheers @octatonic will have a look.  Would prefer to buy them as a one-off if possible and not be tied in to a monthly subscription.

    Slate still sell permanent licenses, as do Brainworx.
    UAD don't do subscriptions but you do need their DSP hardware- their plugins are on another level, especially the Unison preamps.

    Looked into it a bit more:

    Slate Digital
    seems to be geared towards the subscription model.  With individual plugins costing around $200 to buy them outright.  Whereas the yearly subscription for access to ALL plugins (paid in one payment) = $180 or $25 per month with a "pause any-time" feature.

    Brainworx also seems to be geared towards the subscription model.  Plugins looks like they need to be purchased via its sister company Plugin-Alliance.  Prices vary from free-$200 to purchase outright.  The other options is to choose any 10 Plugins and pay $29 per month for 29 months = $841. So after almost 2 and a half years you finally own all 10 of them and don't need to pay anymore.

    I've noticed quite a few Slate virtual mix racks popping up for re-sale on KVR for around $100.

    I also picked up the Waves F6 Dynamic Eq the other day for $29 dollars and it is superb.. incredible value at that price.

    Slate pretty much starte the subscription thing so that is their focus,
    Brainworx have only just started doing their pick n mix subscription.
    They regularly discounted the hell out of their plugins, I've paid about £50 per plug-in for most of them.

    Thanks guys, I will keep an eye out for sales/deals. 

    @equalsql It looks like that EQ is still at the $29 price, which seems to be the lowest price the Waves plugins sell for individually.

    Yep @duotone, it's an amazing EQ that arguably gives the FabFilter Pro Q a run for the money. The plugin has also been updated recently and now includes a much wanted real-time frequency analyser. The lack of one in the original F6 was its main cause of criticism by users on its original release.
