System requirements

Windows

  • Windows XP / Vista / 7 / 8 / 10 (32-bit or 64-bit)
  • VST / VST3 / AAX compatible host (32-bit or 64-bit)
  • Intel/AMD processor with SSE2 support

Always use 32-bit plugins in 32-bit hosts, or 64-bit plugins in 64-bit hosts!

64-bit plugins can't work in 32-bit hosts even if the operating system is 64-bit. Do NOT use 32-bit plugins in 64-bit hosts. They would have to be bridged and can become unstable. Please check your product PDF documentation (available directly from its web page) for more information and installation instructions.

MAC OS X

  • Mac OS X (10.6 and newer, 32-bit or 64-bit)
  • VST / VST3 / AU / AAX compatible host (32-bit or 64-bit)
  • Intel/AMD processor with SSE2 support

Please check your product PDF documentation (available directly from its web page) for more information and installation instructions.

AU note: in some hosts, the GUI is not shown for the first time, if so, then please just restart the host.

Linux

Linux is not directly supported, but it is apparently possible to run the plugins via Wine. Before installing you have to make sure that your ".wine/drive_c/windows/Fonts/" directory is populated with Microsoft True Type Fonts (which is generally available as a package on Linux distributions).

Supported hosts

Our software is compatible with almost every host on the market. Please check the list of the major ones below. If your host isn't on the list, please let us know via info@meldaproduction.com and we will check it out.

Notes
Cubase, Nuendo Steinberg Yes Yes Yes Yes No No VST3 is recommended. Cubase doesn't support side-chaining for VST2 plugins. Cubase 6 and newer seems much faster and more stable than previous versions.
Wavelab Steinberg Yes Yes Yes Yes No No Versions prior to Wavelab 7 were buggy and are now officially unsupported, you may experience various glitches and freezing with them.
Logic Apple No Yes No No Yes No Logic 9 and newer is recommended. Keep OSX and the plugins updated at all times.
Studio One Presonus Yes Yes Yes Yes Yes No Studio one 3 and newer is recommended.
Reaper Cockos Yes Yes Yes Yes No No To avoid clicks after parameter changes, select all plugins in the plugin list, click right mouse button and enable 'Save minimal undo states'
FL Studio ImageLine Yes No Yes Yes No No Use the newest version.
ProTools Avid Yes Yes No No No Yes RTAS is not and never will be supported, therefore you need ProTools 10 or newer. ProTools 11 or newer is highly recommended. ProTools' support for latency compensation is highly limited. If you are using PT 10, ensure it is fully up-to-date - there's an authorization bug in PT, also the update detection in PT seems buggy.
Live Ableton Yes Yes Yes No Yes No Plugins have usually too many parameters, so you have to enable them separately to use them in the XY grid. NOTE: Live does NOT support any interface correctly, it doesn't use the reported buses properly, hence it doesn't work with surround capable plugins. Therefore you need to use VST version, which reports only stereo capabilities by default. NOTE: Live contains a fatal bug, which makes it disable automation for some plugins when rendering. There is no solution to this problem, so please contact Ableton if this happens to you.
Sonar Cakewalk Yes No Yes Yes No No X1 and newer is highly recommended. There were known problems when surround was enabled.
Samplitude Magix Yes No Yes No No No
Digital performer Motu Yes Yes Yes No Yes No Resizing on OSX may be glitchy, try updating DP.
Vienna Ensemble VSL Yes Yes Yes No Yes No There were known issues with AU support, which should be resolved in the newest versions of VE.
Bitwig Studio Bitwig Yes Yes Yes No No No It is ESSENTIAL to disable the default sandboxing - in Bitwig plugin settings select 'As bit bridge only'. Without this the plugins cannot share resources and require more CPU and memory, multiplugins such as MMultiAnalyzer or MAutoAlign cannot work at all, and we believe it is generally less stable.
Maschine NI Yes Yes Yes No Yes No
Audition Adobe Yes Yes Yes Yes No No
Tracktion Mackie Yes Yes Yes Yes No No
AudioMulch AudioMulch Yes Yes Yes No Yes No
Bidule Plogue Yes Yes Yes Yes Yes No
GarageBand Apple No Yes No No Yes No
