Not sure I seen this issue with Waves v9, For any waves v10 plugin i place on an insert, it loads successfully and the plugin GUI is response. However, when I close the plugin and reopen, it's all black.

I will test this again tonight when I get home and update with a screenshot.

Let me know if you guys see the same with Waves or any other 3rd party plugs. Thanks!!!

Yep! I can adjust from the basic q-link view on the live, but the minute i closed the plugin (RVerb) and opened it back up it was gone. Image

I’m experiencing the same problem. Been looking into it for a few hours and was initially thinking it was a graphics card problem or something of that nature. Noticed in Logic Pro X, the same Waves plugins I’m experiencing trouble with within MPC software, are opening up just fine in Logic. Within MPC, I am able to open up some new instances of those Waves plugins giving me trouble, as VST’s rather than Audio Units (which is how I normally load my Waves plugins). Since in all of my project files I’ve always loaded up Audio Units, it wouldn’t be practical to go ahead and switch them all to VST (I’d be losing all of my tweaked settings data for those Waves plugins). Akai needs to do something about this since I only seem to be experiencing it within MPC software. (Running MPC ver. 2.4 on MacBook 2012 on Mojave software

For me however I’m seeing it blacked out all the time... it seems that everybody else is able to see the interface until they click the “x” button??

All my waves plug in's are blacked out for both VST and Audio Unit version. I also checked in FL Studio 20 to see if the waves plug ins would work and they do work just fine. Also I tried running the new Beta of FL Studio VST , but the MPC software just blacks it out and glitches... This has to be a MPC wrapper issue for these plug in's. I am running Mojave 10.14.4

The odd thing is when I downgraded back to the 1.9 Akai software my Waves plugins appeared again with no problem! Then I reinstalled the 2.4 software again and the blank screen problem appeared again. I don’t get it. Has anyone else gone back to 1.9 just to see if they appear?

At least now we know it is an Akai issue. I am going to call Tech Support on Wednesday and see what if anything they have to say.

@tigersharc1 Good luck on that fam. I’ve sent 2 emails to Akai and haven’t gotten any response. I also called. They asked for my info so they could call me back when someone was available.........nothing. :?

Waves on the other hand will respond ASAP!

Mighty1 I hear you.... I just got off the phone with Akai. As you can imagine the tech team had no reference material on this issue. The dude I talked to sent me an email so I could send screenshots as well as information to go with what I sent. I have a feeling like you this isn't going to get fixed. This is a mass production money machine that grabs up impulse buyers and keeps it moving despite issues. The next shiny thing that comes along ....SPLICE ....and some forget about the previous problems. They must have forgotten that those who use the Renn don't have or need Splice since the option wouldn't work for us..... So I still see my problem... nothing shiny to distract me.

This has been a known problem for awhile! To everyone experiencing this would you say it's a Waves prob or Akai prob? This needs to be fixed ASAP
