Frequently asked questions

My plug-ins won’t show up in my DAW


Make sure the correct Plugin Formats required by your DAW are installed to the correct locations. In many DAWs a Plugin Path can be set, so make sure that the correct location is scanned. If the plugin still does not load, redownload the file and try a reinstall.

I Can't Open The Mac Installer


All of our macOS installer packages are certified and signed with an apple developer ID but some versions of OS can still cause this pop up message. If this occurs simply close the installer and then right click on it and check open. This will bypass Apple's error message and allow you to install your plugin.

M1 Compatibility


Our plugins are compatible with M1 but they currently don’t run as native. The best way to check if our plugins work on your system is to download one of our demo / trial versions are try it out.




How to authorize a plugin


To authorize your plugin: either copy and paste the 16 digit code and enter it on the first load of your new plugin or click download, which will download a txt file which you can then copy and paste the code from. Some versions of Pro Tools don't accept the Copy/Paste method. If this occurs try manually typing out your code or contact us.
