Waves b360 plugin crazy high pitch sound

Post by Rick1111 » Mon Apr 30, 2018 3:25 pm

So when I load up an instance of the Waves b360 plugin a super high pitch screeching noise happens... I nearly blew out my ears. This doesn't happen with the normal instances of the plugin but happens with every instance of the (vst3) instance of the plugin. I don't know if this is a problem with the plugin or with Mixcraft but this could potentially be dangerous to people's ears.

Hi,

Is it feedback? Do you have a live microphone?

Nope it's not feedback it's just happens with the vst3 version of the plugins. I load them up and it happens with these

B360 5.0/Quad
B360 5.0/Quad (vst3)
B360 5.1/Quad
B360 5.1/Quad (vst3)
B360 7.1/Quad
B360 7.1/Quad (vst3)
B360 AmbiX-FuMa Quad
B360 AmbiX-FuMa Quad (vst3)
B360 Mono/Quad
B360 Mono/Quad (vst3)




This happens with plugins highlighted in red with a super loud screeching noise.

Hi,

Okay, we'll check it out. A good rule of thumb for VST3 plugins is that if you're having a problem with a VST3 plugin, just use the VST2 version instead. :wink:

Hi,

Do you have build 413? If not, try updating.

Hello again,

We can duplicate the problem with the B360 7.1/Quad (vst3) plugin, and we've let Waves know about it.

In the meantime, use the VST2 version.

Now that I'm revisiting this issue I've remembered I had some other plugins disabled a while back that were having this issue

R360 5.0 (VST3)
M360 Mixdoown 5.1 (VST3)
M360 Manger 5.0 (VST3)
M360 Manager 5.1 (VST3)
MV360 5.1 (VST3)
Nx Ambisonics Quad/Stereo (VST3)
NX 5.0 (VST3)
NX 5.1 (VST3)
NX 7.1 (VST3)
NX 7.1/Stereo (VST3)
H-Reverb 5.1 (VST3)
H-Reverb long Stereo/5.1 (VST3)
S360 IMager 5.1 (VST3)
IR360 sound field 5.0 (VST3)


It's obvious this problem has to do with 5.1 and 7.1 plugins in vst3 format. Even in a plugin like Dorrough360 5.0 which is just a metering plugin you can see a fixed red bar pegged out but of course no noise because it's a metering plugin but you can clearly see something is causing a signal in all these surround sound plugins. For now I'm disabling anything that has 5.0, 5.1, 7.1 in VST3.

How long has it been since you updated your Waves plugins? I'm asking because a few months ago all of the "360" surround plugins disappeared during an update. I notified Waves, and they were restored in the next update a few weeks later. I'm mentioning this because it's possible that your problem was already known to Waves and has already been fixed.
