System Requirements for our Plugins

64-bit plug-in. Requires a 64 bit CPU and operating system.


Minimum System :computer::
Memory : 4 GB RAM, we recommend at least 8 GB.
Free disk space for installation :minidisc:: ~25MB

Operating Systems

  • Mac OS 10.12 and greater (M1/Apple Silicon processors are compatible)
  • Windows 10 (other versions untested, probably runs on older Windows too, but the installer would need to be adapted. Since we don’t have any other Windows than 10, you would need to get in touch and help us with testing and feedback)
  • Linux (64 bit Intel/AMD processors, built on Debian stable and tested in Ubuntu 21.10. There shouldn’t be a reason why it wouldn’t run on any other distro/version)

Plugin Hosts

Any VirtualStudioTechnology v3 instrument or AudioUnit compatible plugin host should work. We have tested:

  • Ardour 6.5 and greater
  • Bitwig 3.3 and greater (earlier versions untested)
  • MOTU Digital Performer
  • Cakewalk by BandLab (PRO version: see below how to configure Cakewalk)
  • Cantabile
  • Steinberg Cubase
  • Ableton Live 10.1 and greater
  • Apple Logic Pro and GarageBand
  • PlogueBidule (user reported it working)
  • Reaper 6.28 and greater (earlier versions untested)
  • Other DAWs or plugin hosts which support VST3i plugins should work but are not tested. Reports are welcome.

Known issues

The audio sidechain of the PRO version is not working due to an incomplete VST3 support in

  • Samplitude
  • Presonus Studio One

There seems to be an issue when the blocksize of the host is set below 64 samples.There will be no output. Workaround seems to be to set it to 64 or higher, then once the plugin initialized you can try to set it lower again. This issue was reported for Cubase and Reaper on Windows, but may exist in other hosts and OS. Some DAWs allow arbitrary buffer sizes. In some cases this will lead to artifacts in the audio. Solution is to stick with buffer sizes multiple of 64 (64, 128, 256, 512, 1024 are safe choices).

For Cakewalk by Bandlab to load the plugin (PRO version), it must be configured this way:
