Installing Midi FX

Recommended Posts

The location of MFX plug-ins does not matter. That said, they should not be installed in the VST plug-in path. Like other DX plug-ins these are not scanned by the VST scanner but must be registered using regsvr32 at install time. Once the plug-ins are installed (usually just a copy process to some location), open a command windows as administrator in the location where the plug-in is installed and type

regsvr32 thePluginName.dll

"open a command windows as administrator in the location where the plug-in is installed" I could not find how to do that in Win7 64bit, at a specific location. Sure i can open it via the explorer, but how do i do it in a folder, where the plugin is located ?

Navigate to the folder using Explorer and open the command window

It is really not a requirement to open the command window where the plug-in dll is installed. It just cuts down on the typing needed to issue the command.

If the command window is not opened where the plug-in is located either navigate to the path using the DOS cd command or use the full path to the plug-in when issuing the regsvr32 command. Make sure to put quotes around the fully qualified name of the dll if the path contains spaces.

The point of the exercise is to provide regsvr32 the exact location of the dll. The regsvr32 program adds an entry in the registry telling programs like CbB the where the DX piug-in is located.

I do not work for BandLab.

The MFX plug-ins bundled with BandLab are automatically registered as part of the install process.

Some 3rd party providers of MFX plug-ins include a batch file to perform the registration or have an installer and handle registration like BandLab does it. All makers of MFX plug-ins who use batch files or the manual process include instruction how to register the plug-in and/or provide instructions on their website.

There really is nothing to fix. This is how DX plug-ins work.
