Air Tubesynth Unified
Although John recommended this in his latest livestream, and put up the Unified version, I must say I am having a stuggle with it (in Win 10)! Firstly getting it installed and activated was a challenge, but I think I am over that hurdle. However the installation gave no choice of location for the plugin files. The VST3 is where you would expect it to be, but I cannot find the VST2. As the Unified version uses the VST2, I cannot get this to work. Does any other Win user know where the VST2 .dll default to going, and if possible can you check the exact name of the file for me? I am assuming TubeSynth.dll but I may be wrong!
Thanks for any help with this.
Ahh! As always just posting here seems to solve the problem. I have now found the errant .dll. It is in fact called TubeSynth_x64.dll and the installer had put it in C:/Program Files/Steinberg/VstPlugins, which is not a folder I use. Hope this might be helpful for others. I forgot to say that installation and activation also caused a nasty crash on my machine, although NI Access was also updating Maschine at the time, so that was probably my fault!
All's well etc etc.
It's always a pain when plug-in vendors' installers don't tell you where they put VSTs, and/or don't give you the option to choose.
Note two things:
- It's probably safe to move the TubeSynth_x64.dll file to some other folder.
- Unify doesn't care where plug-ins are located; you can register them from any drive, any folder.
Thanks - yes I have moved it to where I want it and all is working fine. I only needed to find it to be able to register it in Unify! (And my DAW).
