Hi there,

Please keep in mind that Music Maker is still a 32bit host application. Thus make sure you have the 32bit plug-in version of Captain Chords installed, and you're pointing Music Maker to the correct 32bit plug-in DLL, rather than e.g. the 64bit version. I've tested this particular plug-in before and can confirm that it will work with Music Maker. (It would show up under the "Instruments" section in the program.)

Hope this helps!

Thanks I'm sure you're correct about this. My problem now is that I did indeed download the 64 bit plug in. Can you advise how I can swap it for the Windows 32 bit version?

Many thanks

Hi David,

You might actually want to check whether you did already install the 32bit version as well, but you're just not aware of it. For me, the Captain Plugins installer installed both versions in one go. The 32bit version would be in a different location from most of your (64bit) plug-ins, though. By default it might be something like:

C:\Program Files (x86)\Steinberg\Vstplugins\

Check whether a "Captain" sub folder and the relevant files possibly already exist underneath this folder. If they do, point Music Maker's VST path setting to this location.

If you really can't find the 32bit version on your system yet, you'd need to run the Captain Plugins installer again, and make sure to include the 32bit version in the installation process this time.

Hope this helps!
