Default Installation Script for Additional Value Content Plug-ins included with Pro Tools

As we all know, Avid are giving away some plugins for normal users with support plan active.

It's a pain installing them all, open 17 dmgs for Vanilla users and 27 for HD users, install them, write 17/27 times the admin password, and some more clicks doing next and continue and finally the close app.

I made a script that help's to install all the plugins at once. Just follow the instructions.

Bad news this is only for Mac users, (I'm a Mac, sorry)

1- Download all installers to one Folder (ex: ~/Downloads/Plugins)
2- Download the script below and unzipped
3- open terminal and type
4- cd ~/Downloads (case sensitive)
5- sudo ./InstallAvidPlugins_PTv01_local.sh - then it will ask for your computer password
6- put your password (computer)
7- When it asks where are the DMG's are, drag n drop the folder to the terminal window
8- hit enter and let it do his work.

it will ask for your admin password just type it and hit enter

old update: the script now unmount all plugins DMGs
new update: the same script now works Pro Tools "vanilla" and HD

Download here the script

Hope it helps.

Regards,

Thanks Marco, just installed them all manually, bummer.
Next time will use your script.

I've upgraded to an SSD and install time in now negligible. Just gotta double click 17 times. BUT without an SSD system drive, I couldn't agree more that your app is fantastic.

Thanks for doing this! Had already gone the long route on my HDX system and was just going to install plugs on my Vanilla rig.

Thank you Christopher :)

By the way, I've made the same to HD users. I've posted in Pro Tools HDX & HD Native Systems (Mac) section.

Exactly, you can do that too. Nice to mention.

Cheers.

Great! We made it a Sticky in the PT12 section up top so everyone can see it and use the script. Good Job

Default Re: Plugins offered by Avid to normal version - script installation helper

really? is this for real?
Why did Avid not put in single installer?
Can you imagine Waves Mercury all single installers.

I can't believe Avid can't program a single installer for ALL of their plugins
Like Massey and Softube does.
This is really a :FACEPALM: moment for Avid
