I have downloaded a number of vintage 70’s synths for free but I want to rename them and organise them properly.
Firstly, if the synth is just a .dll can I just rename the file and have it in C/Programs/VSTplugins?
Secondly, a lot of plugins come in a zip file, with other files as well as the main .dll such as fx.dll or presets externally to the main .dll. I can’t extract them in the above location so I am extracting them elsewhere and pulling the main .dll out to put in /VSTplugins. Obviously this will not work as intended, with the additional functionality, but I can’t get Cubase to see into individual folders within C/Programs/VSTplugins.
Ideally I would like to have all plugins (or keyboards as they were originally) in a separate folder, named:
So that when I find them in Rack/Track they are named as the keyboards I recognise, with all the intended functionality.
Is this possible, or should I learn the new name for the keyboards?
How do I get the entire contents of the zip files to work in Cubase?
