Waves plugins display so tiny, cannot read the GUI

Hi everybody.

This might be Windows user problem, or (probably) a Waves problem, but maybe somebody here has had this issue.

I bought the Waves Masters set with L2 limiter and a couple other for EQ and Compression.

Audition finds the waves under VST3 in the menu, but it displays them so tiny you can't read what the threshold is set to.  Maybe with a magnifying glass. 

On Reddit I read Waves only works at 1600x1050 (or something like that). 

My Dell XPS 15 says it recommends 3840x2160, so I changed my display to 1600x.., restarted Audition and there was no change, L2 still tiny and now my mouse cursor is an inch tall.  So I changed it back. 

I admit I am not an expert in Windows 10.  I couldn't find any posts here about this, which leads me to think people don't have this problem.

Has anybody seen this?

I'm not primarily a Windows 10 user and work mainly on a Mac which renders Waves plugins fine even with retina display.

 

Reading up on this a little it may be an issue with HiDPI on Windows 10 rendering all those Waves Plugins in a tiny way inside Adobe Audition. There are a couple of things to try here and see if it makes a difference. First is changing your screen resolution inside Windows 10 settings and see what works best otherwise you can disable HiDPI for certain apps. If the first idea doesn't work try disabling HiDPI for Adobe Audition.

 

This post about fixing HiDPI issues in Windows 10 explains better than I could so give it a go 👍

Thank you for this response -- it's happening to me also with most plugins in Adobe.

By the way, Mr Mike Russell, I follow your videos constantly. Thank you infinetily for your incredible videos on audio editing! 🙂
