View Full Version : Can't find my plugins (switching from Sonar X2)

Hey all,
I just bought Pro Tools 10 with the Eleven Rack (on PC) and can't find many of my plugins, nor does it seem that I can manage my plugins folder (I'm a noob!). Anyways, can you help? I have Massey Plugins (and others) that are 32 bit and I was using jBridge in Sonar. How do I get all of my previous plugins into Pro Tools? I know that PT uses RTAS and not VST but I don't know if I have to reinstall everything or copy past .dll files etc. I want to keep the ability of using Sonar. Is this possible?

Thanks all!

Hi Median.

Normally VST's are saved to their own folder. EG C/Programs/Steinburg/VST Plugins. In PT RTAS and AAX are saved to their own plug in folder. Most Plugin installers that offer a variety of formats will install them to the correct folder. If your plugins support PT then all you need to do is run the installer again and check the box for RTAS or AAX. Alternatively you may need to download the separate RTAS and or AAX installers and run them.

A good example of the former is the Waves installer which supports VST, RTAS, AU and DX. When you run the installer it will automatically copy the files to the relevant folder.


Hope that helps.

Pro Tools does not natively use VST plugins. If you'd like your VST plugs to show up you need the VST-RTAS wrapper from www.fxpansion.com
That being said, I never tried it on PT10. Works fine up to PT 8 though.
