Hi everybody,
Maybe this question was already answered but i couldn't find it, so ...
I know that we can specify different paths in S1 for the VST's.
But, i'd like to move all of them in 2 folders (one for VST2 and one for VST3) on another partition than the usual C:
So, is it possible ?
Are there any conditions ?
Thks !

It should work for most things, you could try some experiments and see.

Some programs are hard coded with locations for data etc. Those might have problems.

You can move VST2 VSTi's but I don't think you can move VST3 plugins.

The data location may be configurable from within some plugins.

Yeah, leave the VST3 folder alone.

For sure. It's not just an S1 thing. The default VST3 folder is THE default folder for all
DAWS/Apps that use them. As was previously stated, many DAWS, S1 included, will allow you to move VST2's around, (tho some, I understand, will not).

VST3 ...
OK but if i leave the original folder ... And create another one on another partition ? Will S1 find the plugins ?
Why is the relative location so important ?

If you are referring to moving VST 3, accept the you just can't and thus, shouldn't move it. S1 will not find your plugins. You might even end up with a digital mess, like licensing issues.
