It’s usually just incredibly slow, when you drag an effect, you have to wait several seconds for the plugin box to appear on the track, sometimes it doesn’t appear even after waiting and I have to select the track and double click the effect to add it.
In my mind it’s a design flaw, when adding an effect it’s trying to initialize it simultaneously, but since it’s so slow, you can’t add the effect except after the initializing is complete. As a ui designer I would add the plugin boxes first and initialize while/after it’s being dragged, but not having to wait for the full init until you can drop the plugin box on the track
It’s a problem with several different plugins but since waves uses a single dll to load all their different, it’s a bit slower to initialize
It’s a really annoying bug, slows down my work and gives me gray hair
I can’t drag some Waves VST3 plugins in, I gave up waiting after 10 seconds so I can confirm you can’t drag in Kramer Tape Stereo, CLA Vocals, CLA EchoSphere, Berzerk and Aphex Vintage Exciter but a lot of other Waves VST3 plugins work like the whole OneKnob series, S1 Imager, TrueVerb. Fk Waves to be honest, they are nothing but a headache.
I mean it has been flawed from the beginning but since vst 2 maybe loads faster, you haven’t noticed it before, still is a a bit weird solution. Wouldn’t really have to be fixed if vst3 loaded as fast but still doesn’t make it right in my mind.
