VST3 - and the "steinberg rule"



  • OK so I have a number of VST3 plugins, and I'm getting a small number of users who are having problems with the install process.

    My installer lets them put the plugin wherever they like, BUT......

    Steinberg and a few other DAW developers insist that the plug in (on windows) goes in

    C:/program files/common files/VST3

    if its not there then Cubase refuses to see it - as it seems does Studio One and maybe even FL Studio

    Sensible democratic DAWs like Reaper seem to not care less about where you put it - just point em at the plugins and they check and install them

    So its a pretty simple support call to deal with but any smaller number of support calls is always a good idea.

    FINALLY A QUESTION!.....

    What's every one else doing about this for their VST3 plugins? Forcing them into the default folder? Putting big "HEY CUBASE USERS!" signs all over the documentation? Qua?

    Whats working for you?



  • I'm forcing/suggesting (can't remember) the default location on each OS.



  • @Lindon I am just installing into the default locations, not a big deal for me.
