Dec 13, 2023

If you are trying to load your third party VST3 plugins in SuperRack Performer but you cannot find them, follow these instructions in order to make the plugins available.

  1. Verify the VST3 plugin you're looking for is installed on your computer.
  2. A given rack will show only plugins compatible with its format. For example, Stereo-only plugins will not show in the plugin list of a mono rack. If you’re not finding the plugin you’re looking for, try assigning a stereo input, then check if the plugin appears in the list.

  1. Launch SuperRack Performer.
  2. Click the menu below the highlighted rack.
