If you have certain Waves 12 or 13 plug-ins that use “WavesLocalServer” (such as CLA Echo Sphere, Omni Channel, and other Waves plug-ins that have an HTML GUI) installed on your computer, you may experience an issue where either UA Connect or Apollo’s Console becomes non-responsive after quitting LUNA. Some issues you may encounter when this happens are:
Issue 1: Console software still shows 8 insert slots after LUNA is quit:
Issue 2: If in this state, when LUNA is re-launched, “UAD Mixer Engine Is Not Running” error will appear and prevent LUNA from opening:
Workaround: Force Quit the “WavesLocalServer” process prior to closing LUNA, or within 15-20 seconds after quitting LUNA to prevent Console from hanging.
- Navigate to Applications > Utilities and open Activity Monitor.
- Click on the CPU tab, highlight “WavesLocalServer”, and then click the Force Quit button.
We are working with Waves to resolve this issue. This article will be updated as needed.
