    On MacOS, we don't have standalone versions of our products, they only work as plug-ins. You can instantiate them under applications known as DAW (digital audio workstation). If you don't have a DAW application, you can download a freeware VST/AU host application off the web, and use SynthMaster inside it.
    On Windows though, we provide standalone versions of SynthMaster, SynthMaster Player or SynthMaster One.

Preset Banks

  • Can I use SynthMaster One expansions with SynthMaster/SynthMaster Player?
