Welcome to the Magix forums.

Where are you looking to find your Red plug ins listed in Music Maker? I have two of them installed and they appear for me, accessed as below:

  • On the track you wish to insert one of them you need to select the "FX" button.
  • That will open a screen on which you need to select the first option "Audio FX Rack track".
  • You will then see the following screen:

  • You need to click on the highlighted "+".
  • Click on "VST FX"
  • This then opens another screen, on which you should see your Red VSTs listed, as on my system, part of which is shown below:

Clearly, all of the above assumes your plug ins are properly installed and MM can "see" them!

@Jesus-Valenzuela

pasted them in the magix plugin folder correct?

No, not ideally. First, I think you should remove them from that Magix folder.

Then I followed this procedure:

On my computer I created a folder called "Magix VSTs" into which I copied the .dll files of ALL the VSTs and VSTis I have that I wished to make available to MM. I then, in MM, went to File>Settings>Program Settings (shortcut P) >Folders.

At the bottom of that screen is a button "Add VST plug-in path", you need to click it and enter the location of the folder which was previously created.

Now MM should see and be able to use all your selected VSTs (via the menu/screen in my earlier post) and your VSTis, if any, which will show up on the Instruments screen on the right hand side of the main work screen.

@Jesus-Valenzuela @emmrecs

The location used by default, I believe, is:

C:\Program Files (x86)\Vstplugins

I put third party plugins in subfolders under the above folder. As far as I know, MMM and other Magix programs scan this folder by default for plugins. If new ones don't show up, rescan this folder or the affected subfolder.

When MMM goes to 64 bits, the plugin path will be:

C:\Program Files\VSTPlugins

Here is a screen shot of my VSTPlugins folder.

I made the Vsti folder and put third party instruments under it.

No luck

@Jesus-Valenzuela

I see that you followed part of what Jeff told you to do. Did you go to the program settings, folders, and add the VST path as Jeff instructed you to do?

Once you have the plugins working, do you know how and where to access them? What you show are not instruments, they are effects.

If I uninstall and reinstall magix,will I lose my projects?

No, but I think that that would not help you.

Please explain exactly what you are trying to do.

Also, learn how to take screen shots of the computer using the computer, not a camera. Camera shots are difficult to see sometimes.

Just thought maybe reinstalling might help

@Jesus-Valenzuela

The last image you posted suggests you have created a folder "Magix Plugs>VstPlugins" on your Desktop. That is definitely not advisable. Windows treats the Desktop as a Protected Folder, hence MM may well not be able to access it. You should place that folder on your C:\ Drive (if you have only one hard drive); I have mine on D:\, which is the drive where the majority of my programs are installed.

Once the folder is correctly located on the root of your drive (my exact location is D:\Program Files (x86)\MAGIX VSTs) make sure the setting in MM "Add VST plug in path" is pointing to exactly that folder.

One other thought: I don't think those Red VSTs can be 64 bit, but MM is a 32 bit program and, therefore, its plugins must also be 32 bit, unless you're prepared to buy, install and use something like jBridge which will enable a 32 bit program to use a 64 bit plugin, or a 64 bit program to use a 32 bit plug.
