Yes. This is how the system knows your SONISTO plugin library - also when you migrate to a new system.
In order to install plugins in Sonisto, you need to download and install the Sonisto desktop app. Here you can handle all your plugin installations in the LIBRARY section.
But once you get the hang of it, it will be a huge time saver.
We have done (most of) the hard work for you. When you install the SONISTO desktop app, you’ll be prompted to choose your DAW from a dropdown menu - and from that, SONISTO will know which plugin formats to install.
If you’re using more than one DAW on your computer, just add another.
If you want to customize your settings, you can simply select/unselect different plugin formats below the DAWs you have chosen.
You can always go back and change your settings in the SONISTO desktop app under “Settings” -> “DAW Settings”.
As of now, SONISTO doesn’t save the DAWs you have chosen, BUT the plugin formats are being saved.
That’s because the location of VST3, AU and AAX are fixed and can not be changed.
If you are using VST2s, most DAWs will find your VST2 plugins in these standard locations.
VST2 plugins: C:\Program Files\VSTPlugins
Machintosh HD:/Library/Audio/Plug-Ins/VST/ /VST2 .vst file extension)
Yes. Sonisto is completely free and always will be, and we have a lot of awesome high quality plugins that are also completely free.
We also have plugins that cost money - and at some point we might implement some really cool extra features that may require a premium account.
Yellow: Partially installed. Either it's a bundle where only som eof the plugins are installed - or only some of the chosen plugin formats are installed. Mark the plugin in the left side for more insigt.
Red: Not installed
As of now it’s only possible to choose one single default location for all your Sonisto-owned sample libraries.
No. Even though Sonisto is built in Linux, it’s for Mac and Windows users only. Sorry, Linux users...
