Upgrading to Twin 3

Upgrading from Twin 1 or 2 to Twin 3 is safe and easy: installing Twin 3 will not replace or delete the previous versions of the plug-in. All versions will co-exist and can be used at the same time. This ensures that you can open old songs that use Twin 1 or 2 without problems.

Twin 1/2 presets

All presets created with Twin 1 or 2 can be loaded in Twin 3, although they may sound slightly different due to changes in the new plug-in version. If you upgraded from version 1 or 2 to the new version, your original presets will be accessible via the V1/V2 Preset Folders item in the preset browser. See also Loading presets.

Replacing a Twin 1 or 2 instance by Twin 3

If you are working on a song and want to replace a Twin version 1 or 2 instance with the new Twin 3, we advise you to do the following:

  • First, save the current setting of the original Twin instance as a FabFilter preset in the Twin 1 or 2 preset folder.
  • Then, remove the original Twin instance and add Twin 3 in its place.
  • Finally, load the V1/V2 preset that you just created into Twin 3 via the V1/V2 Preset Folder submenu in the preset browser.


Because the feature set of Twin 3 has changed fundamentally, any automation data that has been written by a Twin 1 or 2 instance cannot be read correctly by Twin 3.
