Waves IR 1 installation path

Hey guys,

just got IR 1 for $ 29,

when starting installation waves central doesn´t ask me where I want to install the IR´s.

My C drive is pretty full, so what can I do?

I already searched on the waves site but nothing there..

thanks

If I remember correctly, you can have the IRs on another volume, and when you open IR 1, then you can tell it where the IRs are located.

If your primary drive is so full that you don't have space for the 2 or 3 gigs of IR library, then you should probably get a bigger drive and clone your old one to it.

You can download the IR package separately to install (vs doing it through waves central.) You then unzip that package and put it where you want on a different drive and name the folder on that drive "Data".

Then at:
C:\Program Files (x86)\Waves
Put a shortcut to the folder you put the IRs in. So now there should be a shortcut to the folder called "Data" and make sure that shortcut is just named "Data" -- delete anything else windows adds to the name.

used to be you could set up these folders/shortcuts first and when the installer went to install, it would follow through the "Data" folder shortcut and end up on the other drive to place the files but I haven't tried that in years.
