How to install plugins on FL Studio 20

FL Studio was recently rated as the top DAW by our users for its powerful and simplistic interface, but you can get a whole lot more out of it once you start exploring the world of third-party plugins, synths and effects.

Here’s how to install any VST and load into FL Studio 20 on Windows. Previous versions and Mac will be very similar. For this tutorial, I’ll be installing the Hybrid synth from AIR Music Technology, but the process is the same for any VSTs.

Step 1
1-install

Once you downloaded you file, run the installation wizard and follow the instructions. Keep a note of where you saved it. A system restart may be necessary.

Step 2
2-add-more plugins

Open FL Studio and click ‘ADD’ > ‘More plugins…’ in the toolbar.

Step 3
3-manage plugins

Click ‘Manage plugins’

Step 4
4-Find plugins

Make sure the folder you saved the plugin in is listed under ‘Plugin search paths’. If not, add it using the plus icon to the left of ‘Plugin search paths’. Click ‘Verify plugins’, then ‘Find plugins’.

Step 5
5-Find

Once scanning is complete, you should find the plugin by searching.

Done
6-add plugin
7-hybrid

You’ll find the plugin under ‘ADD’ in the toolbar.
