Waves is used in multiple applications within our organization. The main use is with the Waves Sound Grid in our sound system, along with the Mercury plugin bundle for live sound mixing. This allows us to achieve a post-produced quality of sound in a live scenario, which would not be possible using onboard options alone. Plugins are also used in a DAW for post-produced podcasts, video productions, and misc projects.
  • Offers massive library of tools
  • Easy installation and updates
  • Fantastic support and instructions online
  • Upgrading between versions i.e. v11 to v12
  • Transfer of ownership
  • More approachable pricing
Waves is well suited to "prosumer" scenarios as well as professional mixing businesses. To implement any number of plugins can become cost-prohibitive to many users, but given a proper budget, Waves can be irreplaceable. Users who have limited experience or knowledge of advanced mixing techniques have the potential to get lost in the "sea" of options, not knowing how to begin.
  • Ability to migrate plugins between machines is a plus
  • Quality of live sound has improved as well as ease of deployment
  • Powerful tool set allows for tackling any scenario
Waves seems to be the industry standard for mixing plugins. It integrates well with most DAWs and even has the option for Waves sound grid for live mixing. Using a DAW like Cubase, Protools, etc could introduce latency, while Sound Grid provides a near latency-free experience. Other solutions could prove to be difficult to implement.

I use Waves in my recording studio/office area. I mean, what's not good about Waves? It has all of the best compressors/limiters. Incredible reverbs. Excellent real-time auto-tune for live performances. And the sound quality of these plugins is second to none. The OneKnob collection is much more useful than you think just because it sounds so good. I wish I could have afforded a bigger bundle, but everything I use most commonly is in the one I have. It's so powerful.
  • Excellent sound quality
  • Ultra low latency
  • Gives that "polished" sound to the music
  • Can be a bit CPU intensive at times
  • I wish the EQ options were a little better
  • I wish the Waves Tune Real-Time were little more accurate
There really is no scenario that Waves could not be used well suited for a studio environment. For instance, when I have someone come over to record, I use waves tune realtime in post production. And it really helps just get the flat/sharp notes on key easily. And the Abbey Road collection!! WOW!!! It sounds so good! Also, I use the API and SSL on my master chain to give it that "polished" feel in the end.
  • It gave me the ability to tune vocals without them sounding "autotuned," therefore, making the singer feel like they sang it that much better. Just a confidence booster.
  • It gives me the opportunity for simply mastering a song. If a customer only wants a song mastered, I can effectively do that.
  • It is a bit costly when you first purchase, but it makes up for itself when you need it. I feel like it was money well spent.
I use Waves in tandem with these products I listed. The other products, like the Fabfilter Bundle and the iZotope ozone bundle, weren't listed, so I can't really do a proper comparison. However, against the Fabfilter plugins, the only thing Waves lacks is as good of an EQ. As far as the iZotope bundle is concerned, the only thing it does better than Waves is the preset drum isolation stuff. That's pretty incredible. But mostly, the Izotope bundle are preset. I like my plugins to be tailored to exactly how I want to use them. Waves allows me to do that.
