    Samplitude and VST plugins


    Hi everyone,

    If there is anybody out there still messing around with Samplitude 15 I would love to know how to use external VST plugins. I am quite familiar now with all the built-in synthesisers and would love to use some of the instruments that I find or hear about, but how to make it so?

    I am not adverse to googling things myself, and have done so, even a link to a useful tutorial would be great. Magix site help is very basic and not found anything yet.
    Thanks

    Hello!

    If you take a look at this page,
    http://www.samplitude.com/en/tutorials/tutorial-samplitude-download-midi-and-vst-free.html
    the first video (VST and MIDI Setup Tips) shows in the first minute how to tell Samplitude where to find the plugins; the video is about version 10 but with every VST capable DAW I've seen so far it's just a matter of setting the folder where plugins are located.

    ...which hints at picking up a sensible parent folder to install all plugins under it, many setups default to ......\Steinberg\VstPlugins.

    After minute 4, you'll see how external plugins are accessible from the interface.
    I hope this serves as a pointer in the right direction smile
