Using Plug Ins In Live

Post by Bagz » Wed Feb 20, 2019 11:06 am

When using PC you have to manually look up a folder holding your 3rd party plugins, but what if you use more than 1 folder of plugins. If you use a plugin from one folder does it stay in Ableton if you look up another folder for other plugins?

Live uses a single VST folder, it won't remember the other one.

You can use shortcuts to unify the folders:

Take the opportunity to organize your VST folder, it helps later, because Live takes the folder path into account when searching for VSTs.
