How to Download and Install VST Plugins for Adobe Audition CC
VST plugins are third-party effects that can enhance the sound quality and functionality of Adobe Audition CC, a popular digital audio workstation. VST plugins can be used to apply various audio effects, such as reverb, compression, EQ, distortion, and more. In this article, we will show you how to download and install VST plugins for Adobe Audition CC in a few simple steps.
Step 1: Find and Download VST Plugins
The first step is to find and download the VST plugins that you want to use with Adobe Audition CC. There are many websites that offer free or paid VST plugins for different purposes and genres. Some examples are:
iZotope Vocal Doubler: A free plugin that creates a realistic double-track effect for vocals.
Waves Audio: A leading provider of professional audio plugins, with a wide range of effects and tools for mixing, mastering, production, and more.
Native Instruments: A company that offers innovative software instruments and effects, such as Guitar Rig, Reaktor, and Kontakt.
You can also search for VST plugins on Google or YouTube, or browse through online forums and blogs for recommendations. Make sure to download the plugins from reputable sources and check the compatibility with your operating system and Adobe Audition CC version.
Step 2: Install VST Plugins
The next step is to install the VST plugins on your computer. The installation process may vary depending on the plugin, but usually it involves running an executable file or copying the plugin files to a specific folder. Some plugins may require activation or registration with a license key or an online account.
After installing the plugins, you need to tell Adobe Audition CC where to find them. To do this, follow these steps:
Launch Adobe Audition CC and go to the Effects menu.
Choose Audio Plugin Manager.
In the VST Plug-in Folders section, click Add to specify custom folders you want to scan for plug-ins. Click Default to specify the standard VST folder for your operating system.
In the Available Plug-ins section, click Scan For Plug-ins. If youâve recently updated a plug-in, select Rescan Existing Plug-ins.
Audition will automatically enable all valid effects. To hide an effect from the Audition effects list, uncheck the Enable checkbox. If a plug-in is listed as 'Not Working', click Reload to rescan.
Select the plug-ins you want to access in Adobe Audition CC, and click OK.
Step 3: Use VST Plugins in Adobe Audition CC
Now that you have downloaded and installed your VST plugins, you can use them in Adobe Audition CC to enhance your audio projects. Applying plug-in effects is identical to applying built-in effects. For information about plug-in features, consult the documentation provided by the plug-in manufacturer.
To apply a VST plugin effect to an audio clip or track, follow these steps:
Select the clip or track you want to process in the Waveform Editor or Multitrack Editor.
Go to the Effects menu and choose one of the following options:
VST: This option lists all the VST plugins that are enabled in the Audio Plugin Manager.
VST3: This option lists all the VST3 plugins that are enabled in the Audio Plugin Manager. VST3 plugins have some advantages over VST plugins, such as improved performance and compatibility.
Audio Units: This option lists all the Audio Units plugins that are enabled in the Audio Plugin Manager. Audio Units plugins are only available on macOS.
Select the plugin you want to use from the submenu.
