FabFilter Pro-R online help

Quick start

The installer will copy the FabFilter Pro-R plug-in into the common VST, VST 3, AU (OS X only) and Pro Tools plug-in folders on your computer. On Mac OS X, the global plug-in folders in /Library/Audio/Plug-Ins are used.

In most cases, your host will then recognize the plugin automatically. However, if the instructions below do not work, see Manual installation instead.

  • Cubase
    Choose an empty insert slot, for example in the Mixer, and select FabFilter Pro-R from the menu that appears. To use the MIDI features in Pro-R, create a new MIDI track and set its output to the Pro-R instance you have just created. (The VST 3 version of Pro-R can be found in the Reverb section.)
  • Logic Pro
    Choose an empty insert slot on one of your audio tracks, instrument tracks or buses and select FabFilter Pro-R from the pop-up menu. You will find FabFilter Pro-R in the Audio Units -> FabFilter section (named FF Pro-R).
  • Ableton Live
    In Session view, select the track you would like to place FabFilter Pro-R on, for example by clicking the track name. At the left top of Ableton Live's interface, click on the Plug-in Device Browser icon (third icon from the top). From the plug-ins list, double-click FabFilter/FabFilter Pro-R, or drag it onto the track.
  • Pro Tools
    Choose an empty insert slot on one of your audio tracks, instrument tracks or buses and select FabFilter Pro-R from the pop-up menu in the Reverb section.

To begin, just choose one of the excellent factory presets as a starting point. Then experiment with the main reverb controls to hear the effect they have on the sound. Enjoy!
