Empty VST3 field in Preferences

• Jun 25, 2023 - 07:55

I wasn't sure how to couple VSTs to MuseScore, but I discovered that if I set VST3s up in my Mac for DAWs such as Logic, Reaper, then MuseScore 4 finds them.

However I recently noticed that the Preferences setting for VST3 - under folders is blank.
Does this mean that a blank field implies a default setting for the VST3 data?

It'd be useful to know - and also where the default locations are for Windows, Linux and MacOS. I know about MacOS, but am less sure about the other systems. It is useful to know in order to help others with different systems.


you can add or remove VST3 folders in the Preferences > General > Folders menu. You can also access this menu by clicking on the folder icon in the Mixer window. If the VST3 folder field is blank, it means that MuseScore 4 will look for VST3 plugins in the default locations for your operating system.
