  • Heiko

    Does not work for me. Not recognized as a valid VST plugin by Ableton Live 5.2 and other hosts

  • It works for me in FL-Studio v6.0.8, update: although it seems to crash if I try to load a user bank or have any kind of preset activity.
    There are some specific instructions to follow though to make sure all files needed for Grainz are installed. Maybe this will solve the problem you are experiencing Heiko.

    I will update the post to reflect this.
