Can't find my Guitar Rig 7 pro vst in ableton

Hi,


I just installed Guitar Rig 7 pro. In ableton I want to insert the plugin on an audio track, but I can only find the FX and MFX not the VST.

Does anyone knows what I am doing wrong?

PS...what is the difference between the vst/fx/mfx?


Thanks!

    @Inktvis FX stands for effect, so it is the Guitar rIg 7 plugin you are looking for. The MFX is for Midi Controlled Effect if you want to control some parameters with a MIDI controller.

    Guitar rig 7 has no VST plug-in, since the VST2 format is on it's way out. It'sonly available as AU, AAX and VST3.

    I imagine you're on Mac so you can either use the Guitar Rig 7 FX AU plug-in or the VST3 plug-in in Ableton.

    Hi Jeremy,

    Thanks for your quick reply. I will use the FX then.

    I was confused as the GR5 & 6 did have the vst in my ableton library. Do you also know where I can find the GR 6 presets for loading in the GR7? The presets are not showing up.

    You can import User presets made with both Guitar Rig 5 and Guitar Rig 6 from the hard drive. User presets are saved in the following folder:
