Studio One – How do I add a 3rd party VST to Studio One?

Windows users
  • Navigate to the Files/Options/Locations/VST Plug-ins
Mac OS X users
  • Navigate to Preferences/Options/ Locations/VST Plug-ins
  • Click on the Add button, specify the location of your plug-in, and click OK.

You can also drag-and-drop any folder from the Explorer/Finder into the Locations list. Studio One Pro will then scan these locations, along with searching for new-plugins, at startup. All 3rd Party AU, VST3, and ReWire920-enabled plug-ins and applications have their own file path in the OS and will not have to be located manually.


Note: Only the bundled versions of EZ Drummer Lite, NI Kontakt, and NI Guitar Rig will function in Studio One Artist.
