I just downloaded the free Fat Channel (VT1 & RC500 eq's and compressors). I saw them install and activated them through the dialogue, but I don't see them in the browser. Where would they be located? Please help, Thank you. Kirk

They are incorporated inside the Fat ChannelXT plugin, in the EQ and Compressor sections respectively. If you still do not find them in your drop-down list when you click the little down-arrows, close out of Studio One and restart.

Hope this helps.

Within the Fat Channel window, you have to select the drop down menu in compressor.

Ok so here is what made it work for me. Im on OSX by the way

go to your presonus account. Find P1B in your account under Add Ons

Deactivate it.Then download the license file. Download the MacOs Fatchannel file under that P1B

2. Open Studio One. go to Help. Settings Folder. Move to a folder on desktop.

Reopen Studio One. Go to StudioOne from the Menubar. Studio One Ext. Install from file. Locate File. double Click/Open

Go to Activate purchased items under the Presonus Menu Bar again. select License File. Boom. Open Fatchannel plugin. compressor. Drop down menu and there it is finally.

Then I just put my my settings I saved on my desktop back in and chose not to replace. because had settings I didn't want to go redo. Snapshots etc. That worked for me.

This is a piece from my support ticket. My problems started after I installed the Presonus Hub.

In Studio One, go into Studio One>Studio One Installation and install the Fat Channel Collection Volume 1.  Installing products from the Hub will not load into Studio One.

I was having this problem today and found that after I installed the "Fat Channel Vol 1" bundle and restarted, I then had to use the navigation from the Studio One program main page. Go to "Studio One" then in there to "Activate Purchased Items". This brings a pop up box with plugins and extensions for you to activate. You're meant to be able to click the big green "Activate" button, but this NEVER worked for me.

How I did get it to work was by loggin in to the PreSonus website, go to each individual plugin I own via "products" and then in this example "add ons", the "view more details". Do this for EVERY FAT Channel addon you have listed, then click "offline activation". Manually download each licence, correcly naming them on the way as they all download with the same name "PreSonus.licence", which is a bit shambolic.

Once you have downloaded all your licences, then drag and drop them into the "activate Purchased Items" window and they should now work.
