Installing Sonnox (ilok token) for couple of hours now...

Post by turbomartin » Fri Dec 02, 2016 1:34 pm

For those that have joy in their lives, here is a tip:

Never install anything that works with ilok stuff.

Trying for 5+ hours to get the shit running. Sofar, 0 succes.


If there's anyone familiar with installing this, please throw me a rope cause i am about to throw my laptop out of the window now. Thanks!

Working on a mac and the v3 ilok token.

Solved it! The automatic folder structure of Sonnox strangely does not work in Live.

Even though all other VST's have no issues at all, take this in account:


Not OK:

Library/audio/plug-ins/VST/Sonnox


OK:

Library/audio/plug-ins/VST/

Likely Sonnox is to blame. As you hinted, plug-ins from for example companies like Soundtoys, Softube, Klanghelm, Bluecat, HOFA, Plugin Alliance, Melda, u-he and others work fine implementing their folder structure. Companies like Waves have their own structure that display like folders in the Live browser even if it isn't one in the VST folder.
Make some music!
