Help wanted! E-drums in Reaper via UR22 MK2


I would really appreciate some help getting my e-drums going in Reaper.

I´m new about recording music on my computer. I thought it was time to try something else than Garage Band on my iPad so I bought a Steinberg UR22 MK2 and installed it on my PC.

I´ve downloaded Reaper and installed it, connected my e-drums to the UR22 via MIDI and trying to install a 3rd party drum sound that I´ve downloaded from

The installation instructions says following:

“Copy both files:


AND (!)

into the VST Plugins folder of your DAW.

C:\Program Files\Steinberg\VSTPlugins\

(Check the preferences of your DAW for your actual VST Plugins folder).”

Question number one: Should there be a folder under my Steinberg installation that is called VSTPlugins? Because I don´t have one.
Question number two: What do I have to do to install VST´s so they appear in Reaper (or Cubase) if I don´t have VST folder created during the install of my UR22?.

I really hope for some answers from the music producing community :slight_smile:
