Vienna Ensemble Pro Users: Do your waves plugins show up?

Trying to get rolling here. All of my plugins show up in the 32bit VEP except for my Waves plugins. I get the following error message:

Any ideas?

I received a reply from VSL support:

"Hi Dave,

I am sorry to say, that Waves plugins are not supported in VE Pro - we plan to introduce Waveshell support in one of the next updates, so it is on our developers ToDo list, but I have to admit it is not top priority...

Best regards from Vienna,

VSL Support"

try the little software "shelltovst".

the only problem i get is that the preferences windows take a very long time to open once the scan has done..

anyway 3 things are incredible:
-vienna ensemble pro doesn't support shell
-waves plugins sill are 32 bit
-waves plugins use a shell!

And that's exactly why I'm not touching any Waves plug until they lose the shell and become native 64-bit. I don't care how good they are. I'm running a super-smooth rig and I don't want to needlessly complicate my studio life. Besides, VEP is the backbone of my system.

Gear interested

I just wanted to notify that the next update of Vienna Ensemble Pro 5 will contain full support for the WaveShell VST.

I just installed the latest version of VSL Ensemble Pro 5, and was able to instantiate Waves 7 and 8 shell DLL under the 32 bit version of the Ensemble server only. BUT - even though the plugins now show up, I can't get them to work. It keeps saying that there is a channel association problem. I've tried assigning any and all possible combinations to the stereo effects channel, nothing works. Not for the compressors, not for the reverbs or anything else.

I've tried using Jbridge, but then the Ensemble says the architechture is not recognized. I tried using the shell2vst app, but then the applications don't show up under either of the 32/64 servers. I'm completely at a loss here and I need to offload a ton of processing from my main DAW off to the secondary computer.

Any insight would be appreciated. The Ensemble Pro and Waves still don't work together for me.

This is why I am scared of VEP. I own Waves plugins. I can deal with latency but would want thousands of dollars of plugs to at least show up.

I can assure you that the Waves plugins are being used in VE Pro 5 by many users. Make sure you're running the latest version of VE Pro 5.

The newest version should work. They fixed it a few months back.
