What is the exact VST2 and VST3 plug-in file path?? Please help!! Greatly appreciated!


Recommended Posts

Hi, does anyone know what the exact path is for VST2 and VST3 plug-ins for Mixpad Master's Edition??? 

I have tried every imaginable and logical path to make my plug-in's actually work. No Success. I do not know what else to try. It makes absolutely no logical sense for one of the many file paths I have used "not" to work. My result is usually only one plug-in will show or none. I "must" have full VST functionality, or I will have to cancel my quarterly subscription and learn another DAW (Digital Audio Workstation).  Mixpad Master's Edition said it had VST capability. Well, if I can only use one plug-in out of essential Virtual Studio Tools (VST's), I have no choice.  Please, if anyone is familiar with Mixpad Master's Edition, please, please help in any way possible. I don't really want to cancel my subscription. If this one problem can be solved, I am interested in purchasing the full Master's Mixpad Suite but not if the VST's are not fully supported.  :(

Speaking to Windows 10:

Young lady! I seem to be having the same issue as you. 🥶 VST (virtual studio technology) is quite the "industry standard" for a looooong time now.

The MixPad directory structure and location of the files infrastructure is obviously simple.  From my search, it appears that MixPad stores its homegrown effects (*.efc) files at local [C:\ProgramData\NCH Software\MixPad\en\presets].  However these (.efc - not MS Outlook) files apparently are proprietary predators. 🤑 I like the MixPad Visual EQ for custom LP/HP EQ but it's a bit awkward setting my own "QFactor" band sweep manually - it's doable but with much patience and virtue. I really wanted to drop in the free VST plug-in MEqualizer | MeldaProduction but you know as well as I do it aint gonna happen with MixPad.

Switching gears, I also use another program that uses common (*.dll) files for VST plug-ins and I simply drop any "clean" DLL into it's native VST directory and the program will scan this directory and vwa-lah there she blows - literally.

So my dear, it looks like with MixPad we get what we paid for MixPad Masters v 7.30 "NO 3RD-PARTY VST PLUG-INS ALLOWED" ~$80. 🙂
