System requirements

Windows

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

macOS

  • macOS (10.9+ 64-bit only)
  • VST / VST3 / AU / AAX compatible host
  • Intel/AMD processor with SSE2 support

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

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
