Orinj VST support

Orinj version 7.0.0

Steinberg VST compatible logo with TM

Orinj provides limited VST support. This includes the processing of sampled audio data through VST audio processors designed for sampled audio data. This does not include VST MIDI instruments. In addition, Orinj does not support messages between the VST effects and their graphic controllers (windows) and some VST audio effects may not allow all of their functionality.

Orinj will handle any VST audio processor that is similar to the Orinj effects: reverbs, compressors, delays, and so on. These are most VST audio effects. Many of these effects simply take incoming audio and apply some changes to that audio before sending it to output.

Other effects are more complex. An auto tuner, for example, may require preliminary analysis of the audio before it can be applied. Such an effect may need to know when playback starts and stops. These are the types of effects that the current version of Orinj does not support fully.

VST version

Orinj supports VST3 bundles. This means that Orinj can load VST effects from files with the extension VST3. Orinj does not support VST2 effects.

Choose a VST folder

Orinj assumes that all VST effects are placed in a single folder. Before using VST effects, specify that folder in the Orinj preferences. Click on Preferences and then on VST folder in the Orinj menu. Browse to and open the folder with your VST effects. Click on OK in the VST Folder dialog.

Use VST effects

While loading VST effects is different than loading the stock Orinj effects, changing, removing and otherwise working with VST effects is the same. See Orinj Working with effects for more information. The following shows how to load a VST effect.

  1. Click on Effect and then on VST in the menu.
  2. You will see all available VST bundles (on the left) and the VST effects in the selected bundle (on the left).
  3. Choose and effect and click on OK.

Continue working with the effect as described in Orinj Working with effects.
