    FAQ-INFORMATION
    How does it work?

    Do i need an account to get plugins on SONISTO
    Yes. This is how the system knows your SONISTO plugin library - also when you migrate to a new system.
    How do I install plugins in SONISTO?
    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.
    Do I need the SONISTO desktop app to install my plugins?
    Yes.
    But once you get the hang of it, it will be a huge time saver.
    Promise.
    How do I choose the right plugin formats?
    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.
    It is only possible to choose location of VST2 folder?
    That’s because the location of VST3, AU and AAX are fixed and can not be changed.
    Do you support 32 bit plugins?
    No.
    How do I choose the location of my 64 bit VST2 folder?
    If you are using VST2s, most DAWs will find your VST2 plugins in these standard locations.

    Windows:
    VST2 plugins: C:\Program Files\VSTPlugins

    Mac:
    Machintosh HD:/Library/Audio/Plug-Ins/VST/ /VST2 .vst file extension)
    Is SONISTO really free?
    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.
    What do the colour markers next to the plugins in LIBRARY mean?
    Green: Installed
    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
    Can I choose different locations for different sample libraries?
    As of now it’s only possible to choose one single default location for all your Sonisto-owned sample libraries.
    Do you support Linux?
    No. Even though Sonisto is built in Linux, it’s for Mac and Windows users only. Sorry, Linux users...
    I didn’t find an answer to my question. What’s next?
