Installation Notes 4.1 For Windows 4.2 For macOS Installation Notes for Windows To install the VST / VST3 plug-ins, follow these steps:  The file must be in a directory where the VST / VST3 host is looking for VST or VST3 plug-ins.  Unzip the file.  To use the VST2 Plugin 32 bit (x86): Place the Pianotrone x86.dll file and Pianotrone x86.instruments folder into your VST Plug-ins x86 folder of your DAW/host application 32 bit.
  • 7.  To use the VST2 Plugin 64 bit (x64): Place the Pianotrone x64.dll file and Pianotrone x64.instruments folder into your VST Plug-ins x64 folder of your DAW/host application 64 bit.  To use the VST3 Plguin 64 bit (x64): Place the Pianotrone.vst3 file and Pianotrone.instruments folder into your VST3 Plug-ins x64 folder of your DAW/host application 64 bit that supports VST3 format. To uninstall simply remove the .dll, .vst3 and their respective .instruments folders from your 32 bit or 64 bit VST / VST3 Plugins directories, as appropriate. VST / VST3 plug-ins locations on Windows x86 and x64 The following chart includes common VST / VST3 paths. Depending on your DAW/VST host program, these folders are the default VST2 / VST3 x64 folders for example in Cubase and Nuendo: Format Path Extension VST2 X86 VST2 x64 VST3 x64 C:Program Files (x86)VSTPlugins C:Program Files (x86)SteinbergVSTPlugins C:Program Files (x86)Common FilesVST2 C:Program Files (x86)Common FilesSteinbergVST2 C:Program FilesVSTPlugins C:Program FilesSteinbergVSTPlugins C:Program FilesCommon FilesVST2 C:Program FilesCommon FilesSteinbergVST2 C:Program FilesCommon FilesVST3 C:Program FilesCommon FilesSteinbergVST3 .dll .dll .vst3  Relocating plug-ins: if you really need to change the installation path of a VST /VST3 plug-in, also remember that your DAW / host application must know the new installation path.  To use a custom VST / VST3 Plugins folder go to the Options / Preferences / Settings of your DAW / host program in order to assign it.  If an installed VST plug-in is not available, check if the installation path is actually monitored by your DAW (VST2 or VST3) host application.
  • 8. Installation Notes for macOS Audio Unit (.component) Installation for macOS Instructions: 1.- After download, double-click on the .dmg file (Apple disk image format, HFS+ volume). This will open the file with DiskImageMounter utility. Otherwise, right-click the .dmg file and select Open with > DiskImageMounter from the menu. A dialog window will appear, verifying the file and mounting it. Once mounted, the .dmg will appear in the Finder sidebar under the "Devices" header along with the hard drive. 2.- Open a Finder window (click the "Finder" icon in the dock). Highlight the mounted image file within Finder's sidebar. A list of the files within the .dmg will appear in the main Finder window pane. 3.- Drag the files you wish to extract to the desired destination on your computer as for example to your Mac desktop or directly drag the Audio Unit (.component) to your ‘Library/Audio/Plug-Ins/Components/’ folder. 4.- Unmount the .dmg after you have extracted all desired files by clicking the small "Eject" icon next to the mounted image in Finder's sidebar. Additionally, you can right-click (Ctrl- click) the mounted .dmg icon on the desktop and select "Eject" or simply unmount the virtual drive by dragging it to the Trash (Note that this will not delete the files from your computer, the dmg file will still be there). 5.- If you have the extracted files in your Mac desktop, move the ".component" file to the Components folder in your audio plugins folder. Usually ‘Library/Audio/Plug- Ins/Components/’
  • 9. 6.- If your DAW is running, close it and restart it. When your DAW starts up, it will rescan your plugins folder and detect your recently installed plugin. Finding the Audio Plugins folder: The plugin folder is nested in the Macintosh HD Library. There are usually a minimum of two Libraries on your Mac, one in Macintosh HD and another in your user account. You should only place the plugins in the Macintosh HD Library so that it can be accessed by all users on the computer. The usual location of the folder should be: Macintosh HD/Library/Audio/Plug-Ins/ VST (.vst) and VST3 (.vst3) Installation for macOS

  • 11. VST plug-in locations on macOS This article provides detailed information on VST plug-in installation paths on Mac OS X and macOS. The installation path of a plug-in depends if it is VST2 (.vst) or VST (.vst3) and if it is a default or customized path: VST Default paths on macOS While the newer VST3 format has a dedicated installation path all VST3 plug-ins must comply with, the VST2 standard does not know an obligatory folder. However, on Apple systems there is a defined plug-in folder within the system's folder structure since the first version of Mac OS X. All VST plug-in installers for Mac are using these folders: Format Path Extension VST2 Library/Audio/Plug-ins/VST Rarely used: Users/your username/Library/Audio/Plug-ins/VST .vst VST3 Library/Audio/Plug-ins/VST3 Rarely used: Users/your username/Library/Audio/Plug-ins/VST3 .vst3 VST Custom paths on macOS If a plug-in, for whatever reason, has been installed to a different folder, the VST host application needs to be told where to look for it. Cubase 8/Nuendo 7 or later Devices > Plug-in Manager > Plug-in Manager Settings (click on gear symbol) older Cubase/Nuendo versions Devices > Plug-in Information > VST Plug-ins > VST 2.x Plug- in Paths Cubase / Nuendo macOS Notes: In Cubase and Nuendo, the list of monitored VST2/VST3 folders can be managed here:  The macOS version of Cubase only stores VST plugins in one folder: "Library/Audio/Plug-ins/VST or Library/Audio/Plug-ins/VST3"
  • 12.  Or if you're not logged in with administrative access, these sub-folders are in the "Users/[Username]/Library/Audio/Plug-ins" folder.  Place the provided .vst or .vst3 in the VST (Plug-ins) folder.  Follow instructed under the Cubase operations manual and restart the program if needed in order to re-scan new .vst / .vst3 plugins.  Now, the Syntheway VST Plugin (Syntheway Vendor) must be recognized by Cubase as a native .vst / .vst3 formats (VST2/VST3 for Mac). o Changing Folders in Cubase: If you decide to move your VST plugins into a different folder, you'll also need to tell Cubase where the new VST plugin folder is located. To do this, open the VST "Plug-in Paths" dialog box and click "Add." Navigate to the location of the new folder, select it and click "OK." When you're installing new VST plugins after changing the plugin folder location, be sure to specify the new location in the program's installer, as most plugins will automatically install into the Steinberg directory. o Loadable Bundles on macOS Audio Units, VST and VST3 are loadable bundles, using Cocoa framework and xCode Integrated Development Environment (IDE) written in Objective C. Bundles provide a simplified interface for end users and a convenient way to deliver software in macOS operating system. 5.
