"WavesLocalServer" is causing Console and UA Connect to Hang When Quitting LUNA

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.

  1. Navigate to Applications > Utilities and open Activity Monitor.
  2. Click on the CPU tab, highlight “WavesLocalServer”, and then click the Force Quit button.
