I built my new PC and I’ve now spent 8 hours re-installing stuff from scratch. Downloading installers from all different companies. Downloading installers. Etc. Luckily some companies like waves, steinberg, Plugin Alliance etc. Have their own download managers.
But JUST IMAGINE! A service like Steam for VST Plugins. We could call it “SYNTH” or something. All possible plugins ever created under one
service. Buy, licence, transfer etc from a single application. And it would even have your copy protection right there.
Built new PC? Just login to “Synth” and idownload and nstall all your plugins easily with few clicks.
Now I have:
Steinberg download assistant
Ilok Licence Manager
Izotope Product Portal
Arturia whatever it was
Plugin Alliance Manager
This is nerve wrecking and super complicated.
I hope someday we could see a service like Steam for our music plugins.
