How to use VST effects
|Getting Started Tutorials Manual MIDI and Audio|
Any plugins you wish to use must first be installed on your computer and the plugin itself must be copied to the plugins directory that QuickScore Elite is using, which is either the system VST plugins directory, the QuickScore Elite VST plugins directory, or a directory you can set yourself. The QuickScore Elite VST plugins directory is named VST Plugins, and is in the Sion Software directory in the Documents directory. You choose which plugins directory QuickScore will use from the Audio Setup dialog, available from the Options menu.
QuickScore Elite comes with one built-in VST effect, Qverb, a reverb effect, which is available in QuickScore's plugin directory.
For this example we will use the reverb effect Ambience as a VST effect plugin in QuickScore Elite, but any other VST effect plugin can be used in the same manner. It is assumed you have installed the Ambience VST effect and that the plugin itself, Ambience.dll has been copied to the plugins directory that QuickScore Elite is using.
Start QuickScore Elite and go to the Audio Mixer. In any active strip, such as, for example, the first input strip, the Ambience plugin will be available to be used as an insert effect or a send effect. To use Ambience as an insert effect, click on the box below the INSERTS text and choose Ambience from the drop-down list box. To use Ambience as a send effect, click on the box below the SENDS text and choose Ambience from the drop-down list box.
Click on EDIT to edit the effect if you like.
