The update screwed up every use of TG Mastering in Reaper. It says this plugin used is not available but it's in the fx and I can load it again. I just loose all the settings I had done with the so called previous version. And I have doubles of all the TG Mastering vsts. Guess what, only half work.
Sounds like there may be a few bugs in it that is yet to be sorted out. You might want to consider contacting Tech Support about it. If they don’t the problem exists, they can’t fix it.

I did. Their solution was a complete removal and reinstall.

Well the obvious solution is to buy Waves mercury so you can have all the plugs in the same version in the same package.

DO NOT UPDATE - if you have V9 plugins. I think that' must be their catch seeing as they've made their wares so cheap all the time. They must be making alot of money from updating and their WUP.

I noticed Waves changed WUP again. You used to be able to select all your plugins and renew WUP, topping at 240 , making all in plan to the latest date. Now your plugins still in WUP get slugged on top of 240 and sometimes cost quite significantly more ie 50 for a plugin. This new screwy system is another money grab and also likely to have users on all sorts of plugin versions. I used to WUP, now I’m not.

I've been toying with this after seeing a few people mention it in the marketplace. It seems you can deactivate all plugs and apply new owner details in the account (apart from username). Be interested to learn anyone's experience of this.

NB) No issue with Waves update myself.

Yes now you pay extra for WUP per year. If over 1 year it's more expensive. The cap is $240... wasn't it higher before? :phones:

All the plugins you bought before version 10 came out can still be used as version 9 without WUP. They are pretty much the exact same plugin you paid for years ago, you're not missing anything without WUP.

Your new plugins are version 10 and get a free year of WUP and version 11 will probably be another 5 years from now. You will get all the incremental updates for free, just like version 9 did for over 5 years.

When you activate and install new plugins don't update ALL your plugins to version 10, simple enough.

"Simple enough" understates the problem: the dialog box pops up every time you activate a new plugin, and the wording to "update" all plugins is misleading. Most developers use "update" to mean free point releases with bugfixes, and "upgrade" for major paid version changes. There is nothing to indicate that updating plugins will mess up your installation unless you pay an upgrade fee...

It's well documented on the website. You now know not to make that mistake again. Problem solved.
