Where To Put Plugins?

Recommended Posts

Where is the best place to store plugins organizationally? if you are only using Sequoia do you prefer a certain folder? Does this affect stability?

Is it better to store them outside the DAW folder? Better to be on a different harddrive?

Tell me your good ideas.

:huh:

Its actually pretty simple :(

you can go ahead and create a vst folder in c: drive. Right along with programs, windows..blah blah.

I leave it on C drive to keep things simple. My C drive is a 250 wich Is big enough for now. Some plugins with libraries need the library in the same folder as the dll file itself..but these types of plugins are starting to get old.

other times of you install a plugin before you install a host it will create a vst folder inside a steinberg folder...you could just rename steinberg to "the better choice" or what have you. :P

I have my VST folder in my Magix folder.

Works great.

There is no mentioning about any other way in the optimization guide.... :(

I use a VSTPlugIns directory at root level. It saves me having to copy stuff every time I get a new update of Samplitude.
