MANDA AUDIO

FAQ and Troubleshooting

  • Why free ?
  • When the plugin was released the first time it was not free. After several years of successful sales, we ran into a set of personal circumstances, that made it impossible for us to support the software as fully as it deserved. Because of that, we made the difficult decision to release it for free.
    Now that we are back and dedicated to the plugin full time again, we have decided to keep it free. Every donation we receive, no matter how small, keeps this project alive and may help us to provide some updates and upgrades in the future.
  • How do I install on Windows ?
    I can't find the plugin inside my recording software.
  • Look at the Preferences Menu of your recording software / DAW and find out where your VST folder is located on your system, if you don't already know.

    Open the downloaded zip file and copy both of these files:

    MT-PowerDrumKit.dll

    and

    MT-PowerDrumKit-Content.pdk

    into your VST plugins folder.

    Restart your recording software. You may need to RE-SCAN your plugins folder from inside your recording software.
  • How do I install on a Mac ?


  • 1) Download and unzip the file.

    2) Right-click on the .mpkg file and select open.

    3) Follow the instructions.
  • 32 or 64 bit ? Which do I need ?
  • (This is important only for Windows users, because on Mac, both 32 and 64 bit versions are installed automatically at the same time.)

    32-bit software can only use a maximum of 4 GB of RAM, while a 64 bit system can use a nearly unlimited amount. To take advantage of this, you must be using both a 64-bit OS (operating system), AND a 64-bit DAW / recording software together with a 64-bit plugin.

    If you don't know whether your recording software is 32 or 64 bit, please check the "About" link inside your software. Usually it can be found under "Help" in your software's main menu. Somewhere there the information should appear.

    Keep in mind that 64 bit is also sometimes called x64
    and 32 bit is sometimes called x86.
  • VST or Audio Units ? Which do I need ?
  • This is important only for Mac users, because Windows doesn't support Audio Units.

    Please select the DAW you are using to find out whether you need
    the VST or AUDIO UNITS version.
