FabFilter Pro‑Q 3 Help
When installing FabFilter Pro-Q 3, the installation program will try to copy the plug-in into the appropriate plug-ins folders, and in most cases your host will recognize FabFilter Pro-Q 3 automatically. Otherwise, please follow these instructions:
On Windows, most hosts have their own VST plug-ins folder. So if you are using Windows and your host does not recognize FabFilter Pro-Q 3, you need to locate the proper plug-ins folder for your host first (it is usually shown in the Preferences or similar dialog). Then, copy the file FabFilter Pro-Q 3.dll from C:\Program Files\FabFilter\Pro-Q 3 (or C:\Program Files (x86)\FabFilter\Pro-Q 3 if you are using a 32-bit host on 64-bit Windows) to the plug-ins folder that you have found and restart the host so it can reload all its plug-ins. For the AAX version of Pro-Q 3, copy the FabFilter Pro-Q 3.aaxplugin folder to the common Pro Tools AAX plug-in folder on your computer.
You can simply uninstall plug-ins or bundles via the Control Panel.
On macOS, plug-ins are installed in the standard plug-in folders in the system Library folder. These are the only possible correct locations:
Note: AU and VST/VST3 plug-ins may also be placed in the user's Library folders under /Users/<username>/Library/Audio/Plug-Ins.
To uninstall the plug-ins from your Mac, you can just delete the specific FabFilter plug-in files at the above locations. Finally, if you really want to delete all data written by our plug-ins, you can remove the following folders/files from the user Library folder as well:
Note: Since OS X 10.7 (Lion), the system and user Library folders are marked as hidden by default. To make them visible again in Finder, open Terminal (found in /Applications/Utilities) and enter the following commands:
chflags nohidden /Library chflags nohidden ~/Library
