Installation Guide - RealEight

PC Installation

Double-click RealEight Installer file and follow the on-screen instructions.

In case your VST2 plugins folder is not registered correctly RealEight installer will not automatically install RealEight.dll in the correct folder. So to let your VST host ‘find’RealEight you have to set your VST host to scan MusicLab VST2 folder.

Mac Installation

Double-click 'RealEight' Installer icon and follow the on-screen instructions.

Managing Sound Bank

Note: that the installer will create 44.1 kHz sample rate sound bank. In case your audio settings has other than 44.1 kHz sample rate, RealEight on launching will ask if you want to optimize the sound bank to match your audio settings.

Selecting ‘Create Optimized Bank’ button will bring up RealEight Bank Manager, which will automatically create the needed sample rate sound bank.

You can manually run Bank Manager as well,  to create sound bank(s) optimized for sample rate(s) you normally use in your audio work.

To run Bank Manager

PC: Go to Start menu->All Programs->MusicLab RealEight 4->RealEight Bank Manager, or alternatively double-click the RealEightStgMan.exe icon found in RealEight installation folder (by default: C:\Program Files\MusicLab\RealEight 4).

Mac: Run RealEight standalone version and select Sound Bank Manager in RealEight Application menu. 

In the opened Bank Manager window check the appropriate sample rate box(es) and click 'Apply' to start sound bank creating.

Close Bank Manager when the sound bank installation is completed. 

Note: that higher sample rate value will install larger target sound bank.
