@Leslie-peters

Welcome to the Magix forums.

First, you need to know exactly where on your computer the external VSTis are stored. Because of the method by which MM stores information about VSTs and VSTis you need to have both types in the same designated folder.

Then, with MM open, go to Program Settings (shortcut P)>Folders, press the button near the bottom of that screen "Add VST plug-in path" and add the exact location of the folder containing your VSTis and any VSTs.

(On my computer I actually copied all the .dll files for the VSTs and VSTis I wanted to make available to MM to a specially-named folder, "...\Program Files (x86)\MAGIX VSTs", and then pointed MM to this folder. All my 32 bit plug-ins, effects and instruments, were then available to MM. You cannot use 64 bit VSTs etc. unless you also use a 32 bit bridged version of those plugs.)

Many thanks for that, but I don't have a button on the screen like you say in folders.

Hi

. . . . I don't have a button on the screen like you say in folders. . . . .

Are you using the free version or one of the special editions?

For VST support you need the Plus or Premium version or to buy the Creative Suite feature - note it would be more economical in the long term to buy the Plus or Premium then buying functios etc piecemeal.

Hi

. . . . premium 2019 version, just bought it from amazon . . . .

If you bought it as the download version did you install the second part of the program?

If not do so - Store tab, click the gear and select Download all purchased content.

If the disc version check the store tab as above and in the list of items to be downloaded it will tell you if they are installed - if not download and install them.

As @johnebaker writes, the absence of this button indicates, either you do NOT have the MM Premium your original post says, or you have not registered the product with Magix and hence do not actually have all the features of the Premium version.

Hello, still unable to find anything relating to vst on the disc, what do you mean by store tab, when I install the disc which says on it music maker premium edition what comes up on the screen is add on/ product/autorun/start. Thanks.

@Leslie-peters

Your latest post seems to indicate you have not yet even installed MM on your computer! Mention of what you see on inserting the disc strongly suggests this, so can you first confirm that you have actually clicked on either "autorun" or "start" and that, therefore MM Premium is actually installed and can be opened on your computer?

There is no mention of VST on the disc because that only becomes accessible once the program is actually installed.

As a matter of interest, where did you buy the disc which you have?

Yes the disc is installed and I'm using it, no problem, its just that there is no facility to install external vst

@Leslie-peters

(Desperately trying to avoid repeating myself) but have you registered the product at the Magix web site, which will include creating a Magix account if you do not already have one? The possibility of accessing and downloading those additional features that both @johnebaker and I have mentioned does not occur unless the product is registered.

Hi

What is the name and version number of the program as found under Help, About .... and did you register and activate the product with the serial number that was on/in the box?
