You get more than 75 instruments and effects with every issue of
The Plugins collection is a suite of complete, limitation-free instrument and effects plugins. It’s an incredible resource, boasting more than 75 pro-quality plugins that you won’t find anywhere else, all for PC and Mac, in VST and AU formats. All of the included software is created exclusively for us by respected commercial developers such as D16 Group, u-he, AudioRealism, Ohm Force, KV331 Audio, Cableguys, XILS-lab, AudioThing, Vengeance-Sound, Rob Papen, zplane and more. Enough talking! Where do I get these plugins? You can grab them all on the cover DVD with out print edition, or as a download from FileSilo (see p5 for instructions on how to access). How do I install Plugins? It depends on the plugin. As with all software instruments and effects, some have dedicated installers, while others just drop into your plugin folders. You’ll find specific installation instructions for each in the How To Install file in the CM Plugins folder. What do I need to use them? A PC or Mac and a music program (aka DAW) to host them. You need a DAW that can host VST or AU plugins, such as Ableton Live, Reaper, FL Studio (PC), Cubase, Sonar (PC), Logic (Mac) or Garageband (Mac). One free option is Tracktion 6. What happened to…! As of 209, almost all Plugins are 64-bit compatible. The few older Plugins that remain 32-bit-only – such as Amplifikation CM, Rhino CM and KR-Delay/ KR-Reverb – are now included in the 32-bit only subfolders. These plugins require either a 32-bit host or a suitable ‘bit bridge’ (eg, jBridge) for use in a 64-bit DAW.
