Quick start

The installer will copy the FabFilter Simplon plug-in into the common VST, VST 3, AU (macOS only) and Pro Tools plug-in folders on your computer. On macOS, 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.

  • Pro Tools
    Choose an empty insert slot on one of your audio tracks, instrument tracks or buses and select FabFilter Simplon from the pop-up menu in the Effects section.
  • Studio One
    Click the '+' button next to the Inserts tab of an audio track, instrument track or bus and select 'FabFilter Simplon' from the drop-down menu.
  • Logic Pro
    Choose an empty insert slot on one of your audio tracks, instrument tracks or buses and select FabFilter Simplon from the pop-up menu. You will find FabFilter Simplon in the Audio Units > FabFilter section (named FF Simplon).
  • Ableton Live
    In Session view, select the track you would like to place FabFilter Simplon 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 Simplon, or drag it onto the track.
  • Cubase
    Choose an empty insert slot, for example in the Mixer, and select FabFilter Simplon from the menu that appears. To use the MIDI features in Simplon, create a new MIDI track and set its output to the Simplon instance you have just created. (The VST 3 version of Simplon can be found in the Filter section.)
