Troubleshooting Thickify

Solution #1: Ensure you have installed the Thickify plugin in the correct location

Begin by launching the Thickify installer (Thickify.pkg for Mac and Thickify.exe for Windows).

Follow the prompts to install the software.

By default, the plugin will be installed in the following locations: Mac AU: /Library/Audio/Plug-Ins/Components
Mac VST3: /Library/Audio/Plug-Ins/VST3
Win VST3: C:\Program Files\Common Files\VST3

Some audio softwares search for plugins in directories other than Thickify is automatically installed in.

If you use any other folder for your plugins on Windows, please select it by clicking "Browse" in the Destination Location Panel during the installation:

 

 

For Mac, the folders listed above are special dedicated directories for VST3 and AU files.

By default Thickify.pkg installs both VST3 and AU formats of the plugin on Mac. If you choose to install only one of these, please select the format by clicking "Customise" in the Installation Type panel.

 

Solution #2: Ensure your computer and DAW are up to date

Thickify's VST3 is compatible with all major DAWs. If Thickify is installed in the right location for your DAW and still isn't appearing in your workstation, then please check for updates.

Solution #3: Re-scan for audio plugins

Sometimes your DAW just needs a refresh. Completely quit your audio software and then reopen it back up. If you still don't see Thickify in your effect plugins, please re-scan your DAW for audio plugins. Depending on your audio software, there is a different protocol to do this. A simple Google search can help you out!

Also, while you're there, make sure that the plugin is "enabled".

Solution #4: Ensure you are attempting to add the plugin as an effect, not an instrument.

Thickify is an effect plugin, not an instrument. You'll need to load it in your effect rack.

Solution #5: Ensure your DAW is compatible with VST3 or Audio Unit formats.

Most DAWs support VST3 format without any problems. However, older versions of DAWs as well as certain workstations such as Reason do not support VST3 technology. If this is the case for you, please submit a support ticket here with the subject "Thickify VST2", and we'll send you the VST2 version.
