Sep 17, 2010 The good thing is that Adobe Audition support both VST and DirectX plug-in. So it is your choice what type of plug-ins you need to install. Although most of my Adobe Audition plug-in is DirectX based, I am still using Steinberg VST plug-ins. If you are using DirectX plug-ins, you can refer to the following tutorial below for the installation steps.
In our How to Mix Music guide we talked about why mixing dynamic sounds is a tough egg to crack. Vocals are super dynamic so they’re trickier to mix.
But you don’t have to pull your hair out every time you hit the mixing board to get the perfect vocal.
There’s a dizzying amount of audio effects plugins out there. That’s why we did the digging so you don’t have to.
Here’s 9 plugins that will help you get your vocals and beats fitting together like peas and carrots.
Ever recorded an entire vocal only to realize you had the mic in the wrong spot? No sweat.
The Vladg and Tokyo Dawn Proximity lets you change the mic placement AFTER you record. Pretty useful and pretty cool.
Vocals need some color. That’s where a chorus plugin comes in.
Acon Digital’s Multiply Chorus will thicken up your sound. It’s a whole bunch of tiny delays (we’re talking milliseconds) that fill out your vocals to liven them up a bit.
Auto-tune’s origins are pretty strange. But there’s no denying that it’s an invaluable tool for producers dealing with vocals.
Auto-tune is the vocal mixer’s secret weapon. MAutoPitch is one of the best auto-tune plugins around. It fixes pitch, corrects sour notes, and even gives you that iconic T-pain/Cher effect if you want it.
This one comes in a free plugin bundle with all sorts of fun mixing toys.
Reverb for vocals is essential. Reverb takes your vocals out of the room you recorded them in, and allows you to make your own sound space.
OldSkoolVerb has got you covered no matter what your needs are. From huge halls to a tiny closet, it gives you all the options to create the perfect sonic space in your mix.
The DC1A is a nifty little character compressor by Klanghelm. It uses sophisticated compression settings and an easy 2 knob setup that has you covered “from smooth levelling to heavy pumping.”
Be sure to check out their absolutely EPIC demo video.
If you’re wondering how far you can push your vocal track this plugin will do a great job letting you know.
Using a step-style sequencer the A1 Trigger Gate packs in a boat load of cool effects. It’s good for all sorts of stuff. So grab it and start experimenting.
Just like any other part of a mix, vocals are a great place to experiment. The effects on Hysteresis definitely deliver a whole bundle of experimentation.
This delay plugin creates “robotic artifacts and abstract music malfunctions.” Count me in.
All good mixing needs a keen sense of EQ early on. Vocals are no exception.
That’s why the Ochre from Acustica is so useful. It’s perfect for sculpting out the best vocals you can.
Exciter plugins add subtle harmonics to your vocal track for some extra sonic-excitement in the high range.
The free La Petite Excite from Fine Cut Bodies (you just have to signup to get it) is a great plug to try out.
Throw it on your vocal and enhance it to your liking with some subtle harmonic distortion.
Vocals are tricky to mix. But with these handy plugin tools it doesn’t have to be so tough. Grab ’em all, hit the studio and get cracking on that perfect vocal track.

This tutorial will teach you how to install a VST plugin for different audio recording and music notation software. VST is a very useful feature that extends the audio processing functionality of existing software. For example Notion 3 does not include an EQ in its mixer by default; but Notion 3 allows VST plugins. So you can simply install and add EQ to Notion 3 mixer using a VST plugin. Another example is that Audacity does not include a parametric equalizer by default.
But since Audacity allows VST plugins, you can add a parametric equalizer using third party plugins. This tutorial is illustrated using Windows 7 and Windows XP although concepts and principles can be applied to other OS versions. VST plug-in offers additional sets of effects which are not otherwise included in the default Adobe Audition list of effects as well as other DAW like REAPER.
Step1: Searching for free VST plug-in. – in this case, you may want to visit KVR Audio and search for available VST plug-ins. Follow the rest of the procedure until you will be able to download the VST exe file which will act as the installer.
This is the sample download page of the VST plug-in: Aodix v4 plug-ins
Step2: Double check the integrity of your file. Some VST plug-in developers includes an MD5 hash to their software. So after downloading, you need to double check the MD5 hash to make sure it matches with the provided by the developer. You can read this tutorial on checking the file integrity using MD5 checksum. The MD5 checksum method can be applied to any downloadable assets such as WAV or MP3 files.
Why do you need to bother checking the MD5 checksum?
a.) If the original authors/developers provide a checksum; you will always ensure that the file you have downloaded is not corrupted or altered intentionally by other parties (if your checksum results matches with the one provided).
b.) Downloading files from the Internet can easily become corrupted or injected with other codes not included with the original installer.
Another big issue that you need to deal with is to ensure that it does contain any viruses or malware. You can upload the exe file here to be checked by the scanners.
Step3: Once it is clean, double click the installer to start the installation process. It is suggested to close all open programs to avoid conflict during installation.
You might see a warning before continuing the installation such as this:
VST plugin in Adobe Audition
It says that your system (audio interface and digital audio workstation/multi-editor/recorder) should support ASIO. These are low latency audio drivers that is very different from the one used and installed by Windows in default. Windows is using WDM; however if you are using professional audio interface; they have ASIO drivers on it. For more details about ASIO and WDM audio drivers, you can read this article on ASIO vs. WDM. If you are using older versions of Adobe Audition such as the 1.5 version, it does not support ASIO. Read for more information here: Will Adobe Audition 1.5 or 3.0 record a Firewire audio interface.
You should pay attention to some warnings to make sure the VST plug-in will work without problems. Example of these warnings are common when the VST plug-in is not freeware. In this case, it requires license key or authorization code during the installation.
If you encounter this problem, read the tutorial section on the installation of proprietary VST plug-ins.
Step4: Launch Adobe Audition – go to Effects – Add/Remove VST Directory. Navigate to the folder where the VST plug-in has been installed. If you find many folders under the plug-in, make sure to select the general path, example: C:Program FilesAodix.
Based on the screenshot above, Adobe Audition will automatically scan the sub-directories under the main folder for VST plug-in related files.
Step5: Once added, go to Effects – and click “Refresh Effects Lists”. The VST plug-in should then be added to Adobe Audition.
This is just one example, there are countless of VST plug-ins available in the internet for downloading. I also recommend the plug-in reviews before proceeding with the installation to determine if it is great or not.
The good thing is that Adobe Audition support both VST and DirectX plug-in. So it is your choice what type of plug-ins you need to install. Although most of my Adobe Audition plug-in is DirectX based, I am still using Steinberg VST plug-ins.
If you are using DirectX plug-ins, you can refer to the following tutorial below for the installation steps:
Step1.) Make sure you have an installer (.exe file) of the VST plugin you need to install. There are lots of VST plugins available, some a free and some requires you to have a license. For illustration purposes, supposing you need a free and complete VST plugin that already includes the following important effects: parametric EQ, compressor, etc. In addition to the one provided in the previous section; another great free VST plugin that will run in Windows is the Reaper VST audio plugins. Download the installer here.
Step2.) After downloading the installer, double click the exe file to install it to your Windows 7 OS. Make sure to select all effect plugins during installation.
This version of the software includes numerous refinements and supersedes all previous versions.This software is compatible with OSX 10.7 - OSX 10.12About public beta versions:What is a public beta version?We would like to take the opportunity to start an open dialog with you in order to refine this product even further.

This public beta version has been thoroughly tested by a team of beta testers.
Step3.) Confirm that you have properly installed the Reaper VST plugin. Go to your C:Program Files, you should see a directory named as “VSTPlugins”. If you visit that folder, you should see the “ReaPlugs” folder with the following contents:
Installed Reaper VST plugins
As you can see after installation, the actual VST plugin that is very important are those with .dll extension. For example this dll file: reaeq-standalone.dll is the actual ReaEQ plugin. And also reacomp-standalone.dll is the application extension of ReaComp Compressor. Take note that these programs are standalone so it can be move to other directories and would still work.
Now you have successfully installed the VST dll plugin files, it is time to integrate it with your recording or music notation software. Let’s start with Notion 3:
Step1.) Launch Notion 3 music notation software.
Step2.) Open any existing Notion 3 project that you are working which you would like to apply VST effects
Step3.) Click “Mixer” in the Notion 3 menu.
Step4.) You should see different tracks in the mixer representing different instruments in your project. Take note that this mixer works exactly like a real mixing console. To connect an EQ to a mixer, you should be using Inserts.
In Notion 3, each track or channel allows you up to 4 effects to be added as “Insert”. Click “Insert” on any tracks or channel. Start with the top most insert of the channel.
Step5.) After clicking on it, it will show two options in the dropdown: “None” and “VST Manager”. Currently “None” is checked since Notion 3 is not yet configured to use any VST plugins, so you need to check “VST Manager”. You will then see all the VST effect plugins automatically discovered by Notion 3 based on installed VST plugins in Windows 7.
Step6.) You will then need to click “Enable” for example the ReaEQ parametric equalizer (ReaEQ-standalone) to use it and then click “close”.
Step7.) Now go back to the mixer in Notion 3, click again “Insert” and select “ReaPlugs”. You can then click “reaeq-standalone”. Finally you can see the EQ options where you can apply desired settings.

The effects will then be highlighted on the Insert section of the Mixer as shown below (for example- Oboe, Violin I, Violin II and Viola are applied with the EQ effect):
