Step 1. Download the newest installer
First go to our download page and get the newest installer from any of the mirror sites.
How to choose a mirror?
Each mirror is a server (or cloud of servers) which hosts the exact same file, the only difference is in the download speed. For example, if you are located in central Europe, you can choose the server in the Czech republic. But if you are in UK, USA or even Australia for example, it's better to use the Google drive, the download will probably much faster.
Step 2. Run the installer
This is a little different for each platform so...
Double click on the installer file. If Windows say it's from an "unidentified developer", just choose that you want to run the installer anyway.
Mac OS X
Double click on the installer ZIP. Finder will extract it into a subfolder, from there you can run the actual installer. If OSX says that Gatekeeper is preventing you from some threat, you are one of the few ones who still have this workflow killer enabled. Here's how to disable Gatekeeper. Then you need to enter your password, otherwise the installer will most likely not have enough permissions to perform the installation properly.
Step 3. Say hello! :)
Well, there are some further information... please read it through. Then click next.
Step 4. Licence terms
Here you need to agree with the licence. Nothing exceptional, just that you agree that you won't try to hack it, crack it, spread illegal copies etc. You should read this once too.
Step 5. Which plugin interfaces do you want?
It is recommended to keep all interfaces enabled. The plugins themselves are extremely small thanks to the MeldaProduction Plugin Kernel technology.
32-bit and 64-bit plugins? Don't worry!
The installer always installs both versions if your OS is 64-bit. All reasonable hosts can choose the best version - if your host is 64-bit it will choose 64-bit plugins and vice versa. So you don't need to worry about 32-bit and 64-bit...
Step 6. Which plugins do you want?
Select which plugins you want to install. You'll get a trial for commercial plugins you don't own, so feel free to select all plugins, for example using the buttons on the right. And your selection will be remembered from one install to the next. The plugins are extremely small, so...
Step 7. Select VST plugin paths (Windows only)
While paths for VST3, AU and AAX plugins are predefined, you can install VST2 plugins anywhere you want. But it's highly recommended to keep the defaults. In all cases, you just need to ensure you have the VST plugin path selected in your host, so that the host knows where to find the plugins.
Step 8. Let the installer do the magic
Now just let the installer prepare everything for you. If your host isn't able to open the plugin(s), you probably need to check this tutorial again ;). If you are certain something is wrong, contact us via firstname.lastname@example.org.
Activating commercial plugins & bundles
When you are finally sure these are the best plugins you have ever seen :), purchase a licence for the commercial ones from each product's page (or buy a bundle licence), you will receive an email with a licence file and activation instructions. Simply extract the licence file and drag & drop it into the plugin you want to activate, or use Settings / Activate. And there's even a video tutorial.
