Libre Wave plugins are not available in AVID’s proprietary AAX format.
However, you can still use Libre Wave plugins in an external host such as Carla or Vienna Ensemble Pro.
Libre Wave products are supplied in one or more of the following formats: VST, VSTi, AU, SFZ, standalone executable.
Libre Wave software is tested on a variety of hardware and software and any limitations I find will be posted below. The amount of hard drive space required varies between products so please see each product’s description for more specific information.

If you would like to purchase multiple products or licenses please contact me to discuss a bulk order discount.
I sometimes partner with deals sites that provide time limited discounts on my products but I rarely run sales here at Libre Wave. The only exception is new products which almost always launch at an introductory price. The rest of the time the price you see is almost always the same throughout the year.
Coupon codes are sometimes sent out to existing customers who are on the mailing list.
I occasionally review the prices of my products and revise them up or down as appropriate.
If you are unhappy with one of my products open a support ticket and I’ll see if there is something I can do to improve the situation for you. If I can’t then you can of course have a full refund.
All refunds are handled by my payment processor and may take a few days to show up on your statement. The only condition is you must claim your refund within 14 days of your purchase.
Before you make a purchase please read the product’s description thoroughly to determine if it will work on your system and that it meets your needs. If you are in any doubt please contact me to get more details before you purchase.
I don’t want my software to take away your freedom so unless otherwise stated all Libre Wave software is released under the GPLv3 license and all audio samples are released under a Creative Commons Plus license. The complete license document combining the GPL, Creative Commons, and CC+ license is available here.
Why not release the samples under the GPL too?
The GPL license is intended for software and one of its requirements is that the user must have access to the software’s source code. Samples are audio files and don’t provide anything that is equivalent to source code, so the GPL is not really appropriate for samples. In addition to this the GPL requires all derivative works to be released under the same license, so providing GPL samples would require users to release their compositions under the GPL too.
I opted to use the standard Creative Commons Attribution-NonCommercial-ShareAlike license plus an additional license that grants extra permissions. Please contact me if you have any queries about the license terms.
Once your order status has changed to completed your download links will be activated. You’ll receive an email containing the links and they’ll also be available from your account dashboard.
If you don’t see the email in your inbox please check your junk mail and spam mail folders and make sure the librewave.com domain is on your spam filter’s white-list.
If you don’t see your download links in either your account or your email please open a support ticket.
If you’re unable to access your account then please contact me and provide your order details. It’s also important that you provide at least one alternative email address or other method by which I can contact you – because if you haven’t received your order email then it’s unlikely you’ll be able to receive any other emails from me at the email address you used when you placed your order.
PayPal (also credit/debit cards)
You can place an order even if you don’t have a PayPal account and would like to use a debit/credit card.
Orders are automatically processed and download links will be issued as soon as the order completes. On some rare occasions I have to manually confirm payments before the download links are sent out so please leave at least 24 hours before asking me where your download links are.
Before you contact me for support please check the Knowledge base to see if your question has already been answered.
Support is only provided for verified purchases from Libre Wave or affiliated resellers. If your purchase was made through this website you should open a support ticket.
If you purchased through an affiliated reseller please use the contact form and include your order ID or transaction reference so that your purchase can be verified.
I usually respond to support requests pretty quickly (within hours) but sometimes it can take me a little longer. Don’t forget to check your junk/spam email folder in case my reply has got lost on the way to you.
