Installation Guide - RealStrat 4

Installing RealStrat PC version

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

In case your VST/VST3 plugins folder is not registered correctly RealStrat installer will not automatically install RealStrat.dll’s in the correct folder. So to let your VST host ‘find’ RealStrat you have to manually copy RealStrat.dll, RealStrat (2 mono).dll, RealStrat (2stereo).dll, and RealStrat.vst3 files from RealStrat installation folder to your VSTplugins/VST3 directory.

Installing RealStrat Mac version

Double-click RealStrat 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, RealStrat on launching will ask if you want to optimize the sound bank to match your audio settings.

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

You can also manually run Bank Manager 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 RealStrat 4->RealStrat Bank Manager, or alternatively double-click the StgMan.exe icon found in RealStrat installation folder (by default: C:\Program Files\MusicLab\RealStrat 4).

Mac: Run RealStrat standalone version and select Sound Bank Manager in RealStrat 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 sound bank installation is completed. Note, that higher sample rate value will install larger target sound bank.
