I can't get Reaper to recognize a new Waves plug in I just bought. It's their BB Tubes plug in.

I've paid. Downloaded,Installed and activated and licenses and all that stuff.

I have re started Reaper. I have manually re scanned the VST plug in tab in reapers preferences.

I have downloaded the latest version of Reaper and repeated as above.

I have followed the 'support' pages from Waves on how to get reaper to see this plug in. (Why is this so super complex??)


In reaper all my current plug ins are in a folder I set up called Reaper Media>plu ins. They all work just fine.

On downloading the waves plug in it sent it to
C:\Program Files\Common Files\VST3

I dont want to re can reapers plug in path to this file location because all the other plug ins are not in there and I'm halfway through a project and dont need it all going pear shaped because of this.

So I copy pasted the Waves BBtubes file from C:\Program Files\Common Files\VST3 to My folder Reaper media>plugins where all the other plug ins are seen by reaper.

But Reaper doesnt see the new waves plug in still.

Three hours of my life , $30, hair loss and I still dont have a working plug in. Ive contacted wavs support but life is short.

Any thoughts? What did I miss?

Cheers if anyone can help \:\)

OK..I've got this done 'with a little help from my friends' lol! I went back and had reaper add a second path to the waves folder I downloaded in it's default installocation. That didnt work on a re scan. I then had reaper add two seperate paths to 1) the plug in file withing that folder & 2) the Waveshells file withing that that folder. I then re scanned and it found it. I now see x4 vst and x4 vst3 Magma and lil bb tubes plug ins listed in reaper. THANK YOU all for helping me out here , and quicker than WAVES support (too lol! To be fair to waves support I am in the UK so there is a time difference).
