Cannot install add-on packs (Windows)

DAW in Run as Administrator mode. This prevents drag-and-drop working from Windows Explorer.  Disable Run as Administrator while you install your plugins, or load a different DAW under your normal user account to install the plugins

Cannot find BigKick plugin in DAW

Installation is normally very reliable.  However there are a bunch of things that we have seen or had reported that cause problems with plugins showing up in the DAW. 

Starting with the most basic stuff first: 

📌Are you looking in the right place?  Many DAWs separate instrument and audio effect plugins.  BigKick, for example, is an instrument plugin and will only show up on an instrument channel. 
📌Have you allowed the computer to complete rescanning the plugin folders.  Don’t cancel the rescanning of plugins just because it’s taking a while. 
📌Is your set-up supported? We support all recent and common DAWs.  But if you have an unusually old system check the product page on Plugin Boutique for full system requirements.
📌Are you looking in the right place on the menu.  Credland Audio plugins all appear under Plugin Boutique, if your menu is sorted by manufacturer. 
If you have more than one DAW see if you can see the plugin in any of the packages.  This check can help narrow down the problem. 


Did you install the right version of the BigKick plugin? There’s only one installer, and the default options are usually correct.  But you can select to install just certain versions.

On the PC you can install 32-bit and 64-bit versions of the Credland Audio BigKick VST plugin and the (64-bit) AAX version. Check the requirements for your host (or just install all the versions).  


Note that Ableton supports AudioUnit and VST versions but you need to enable this in the Ableton Preferences.  We recommend you use the AudioUnit version if you have a choice.
