I cannot find any application after installing?

    Our products are VST/AU plugins that requires either an AU compatible host (Logic, Garageband) or a VST compatibile host (Live, FL Studio, Cubase, Reaper) to load them into. There are no standalone applications, that is why you do not get any application icons when installing.

    If you do not own a VST/AU host, you can still load our product up with a free host such as VST Host for Windows or VST Lord for Mac.

    Update 2017-02-02: Microtonic for Mac is now available as standalone and you will find it in your Applications folder.

    Any idea where the DLL is kept/installed to on a windows 7 system? I'd like to point several hosts to that .dll for registration.

    Hey There!

    I installed Synplant on my new macbook pro.

    normally LIVE will detect all VST automatically.

    It also did so with other VST-Plugins....NO PROBLEM AT ALL.

    But I can't find the Synplant VST anywhere.....there is a folder in live and all....but there isn't any content.

    Any clue what my mistake is?

    Best,

    Christian

    Hey, you need to run Live in 32-bit mode for Synplant to work. We are working on a 64-bit update, but we do not have a release date on it yet.

    Update 20140814: Synplant has been available in 64-bit for some months now, so no more reason to run Live in 32-bit mode.

    I am no Logic expert, but this is how I launch plug-ins in Logic X...

    I've downloaded VST Lord and gone through the instructions though it gets a little confusing. It tells me to open up a synth (which i don't know what that is) to be able to open the plugin. Any way you could guide me through getting it past VST Lord and into Protools ?

  • Users avatarFredrik Lidström

    Hey, I do not use Protools myself so I have not tested any of these methods, but maybe someone else has any tips on VSTs in Protools?

    To load any of our plug-ins in VST Lord, you can find the VSTs installed on your system in the following folder.

    /Library/Audio/Plug-Ins/VST/Sonic Charge

    How do you open Synplant? I have VSThost and I tried loading the .dll but nothing works

  • Users avatarFredrik Lidström

    Synplant should load in VSThost, I use it a lot myself for testing. Make sure you drop the correct DLL (32 / 64-bit) in the correct VSThost (32 / 64-bit). That's probably my only suggestion, hope it works. =)

    For people installing on Mac and in Ableton, I had to do the following (I couldn't find any answers so hopefully this helps anyone who ends up here with the same problem):

    • Had to set my Library folder to read & write for EVERYONE. You'll know you've got it if it asks for your password during the install. Before, it would complete the installation but no folder was created.
    • Need to turn ON use VST system folders in Ableton settings or it won't be looking in that Library folder.

    Now everything is working great :)

  • Users avatarMagnus Lidström

    Thanks for the info Sarah. I am surprised to hear that you had to lower the access rights on /Library to install!? The reason why the installer asks about a password is to temporarily elevate your user to administrator with full access rights ("root access") everywhere.

    Which OS X version was this? Do you know if your user account is an "Administrator" account or not?

    Hello,
    is Permut8 supported with the AAX Format of Pro Tools 12?

  • Users avatarBrandon McGarvey

    Hello Fredrik, I see your updated post that Microtonic now has a standalone for Mac. Will you have a standalone for Windows? I've got a TE PO-32 on the way and while it is of no issue for me to run Microtonic through Cubase, I would find a standalone edition convenient for just making new sounds to send to my PO-32.

  • Users avatarFredrik Lidström

    Standalone windows app is something we've planned to take a look at.

    I personally run savihost a lot. You just rename the .exe file to Microtonic.exe and put it next to the DLL and it's like you have a standalone that is easy to fire up. It works pretty good except for keyboard input.

    Hello Fredrik ... new user here. I installed Sonic Charge Plugins 2017.02.02 (installer), and I am attempting to follow your advice on use of SaviHost for windows. If I understand correctly, I copy SaviHost.exe to my VSTPlugins under: C:\Program Files\VSTPlugIns\Sonic Charge , and rename it to Microtonic.exe, for example. I have tried this (using a 64bit version), and repeatedly get an "Error loading ..., please make sure you have renamed SaviHost.exe to the name of the plugin dll...". I'm a little frustrated because the explanation seems simple, but clearly I am missing something.

    I got some error with Savihost, but I don't recall the exact message. Turned out that I needed to install Microsoft Visual C++ 2008 SP1 redistributable 64-bit. After installing that, it started fine and Microtnic loaded.
