VST plugins – How to install & find them!

How do you install VST plugins & instruments to your DAW (Digital Audio Workstation) and where do you find them? It’s really not that complicated but still a question I get quite often. So I decided to make this video, hopefully that will be helpful for those who just don’t know how to…

I should make a note that I am using Reaper as DAW, so while Reaper of course is being used in this tutorial, I’d say the things I talk about here is applicable for a majority of DAW’s, be it ProTools, Cubase, Cakewalk etc.

Things are adressed in this video: installing DAW and releated software across multiple hard drives, where to place your plugins and instruments, how to make sure that your DAW finds the installed software and how to add it to a track… and some more! The video actually came out a bit longer than I had anticipated but, well, I hope there’s no waste of time despite that fact.

Ignite Amps – Emissary – Free guitar amp VST by Have Guitar

Ignite Amps – Emissary – Free guitar amp VST by Have Guitar

Taking a stint look at the Ignite Amps Emissary – a free amp simulator that sounds very good according to me. The Emissary is free to download and you just need a digital audio workstation (DAW) to use it, if you haven’t got that Reaper is a good alternative to start with. What is it? It is a VST-plugin that simulates a guitar amplifier – it has one clean and one gain channel and I’d say we’re sniffin around metal territory here… but with some tweaking it surely can be used for other genres as well.

So, this is more of a “let’s see what it can do” video and it’s the first one of it’s kind (for me!) so hopefully I will develop the format as we go along. Feel free to comment about that (yes, just a I said in the video!).

Besides the Emissary I have used a bunch of other plugins to get this to sound (hopefully) better; Kjaerhus Classic compressor and delay, Ignite Amps TSB-1 (Tyrant Screamer, like a Tube Screamer in VST format) and Nadir (cab/IR loader) and Variety of Sounds BootEQMkII. Best of all? They are all good plugins and free to download and use as well!

There you have it, my first dent with some free software for recording guitar – I do hope you’ll like it. Please do subscribe to Have Guitar to gimme some support, that will be appriciated! To all of you who allready do: Thanks!!!
