I've been using Toontrack EZDrummer 2 with Studio One 3 Artist and the VST Add On for several months. However, I am having no success getting Studio One to recognize Toontrack EZKeys or EZMix plug ins. Does anyone else have experience with this? Am I missing something obvious? I know how to add the correct VST folder within Studio One. I'm stumped.

Yes. The VST Add-On for Studio One 3 Artist is meant to work with any VST plug-in. However as there are two different installs on Windows for Studio One (32-bit) and (64-Bit) Make sure you're running plug-ins in the right memory format. Looking at your account activations, we see you are running the 64-bit version of Studio One 3 Artist.

If the plug-ins that you have installed are 32-Bit versions, then Studio One 3 (64-Bit) will not see them. You'll need to download the 64-Bit versions from Toontrack.

OK, I hacked away at this until I finally figured it out. There were two issues.

1) The Toontrack Read Me file instructs installing the 32 bit version for use with 32 bit hosts. I have Studio One Artist which, I understood to be a 32 bit host. Going to the 64 bit EZKeys was the first step to getting this running.

2) The EZKeys software that I downloaded was not up to date and had to be updated to the latest version to work with Studio One.

In summary: Make sure to install 64 bit Toontrack software for use with Studio One Artist and check for updates.

I hope this can be helpful to someone else. Thanks for your answer, Alex Tinsley.
