How to install VST plug-ins

Here is all what you need to install VST plugins on your machine

Read first!

VST plugins are not standalone softwares. They need a "host" in order to be managed and to communicate from one plugin to another.

The best known of VST hosts is  "Cubase" from Steinberg, but if you want to use a free one, you can download it from the list below:

Mac PC
HostX from mmTurner Maize Studio
AU Lab from Apple Mini-Host from Toby Bear
Kil2 from Fredrik Olofsson SAVIHost from Hermann Seib
MultiVST Shell from Lone Roger VSTHost from Hermann Seib
Ouroboros Bidule from Plogue Art
Ugly VSTi interface from Refuse Software Psycle from Psycledelics community
Bidule from Plogue Art Arguru from Arguru Softwares

To allow those VST hosts to work, your PC must have an ASIO driver. If it is not the case and you get a "No ASIO driver!" message, you must first download ASIO4ALL which should solve the problem.

About free VST hosts, we prefer  VSTHost from Hermann Seib which is very light and efficient.

Installing plug-ins

Maner can change from one host to another.

The first thing to do after the download is to expand (uncompress) the files.

VST plugins are usually  .dll files

When the plugin is expanded, you must drop it into the VST dedicated folder of the host. When it's done, the plugin must appear into the "effects" or "VST" menu of the host.
