How to Install

A Vamp plugin set consists of a single dynamic library file with DLL, .dylib, or .so extension (depending on your platform), plus optionally a category file with .cat extension and an RDF description file with .ttl or .n3 extension.

To install a plugin set, copy the plugin's library file and any supplied category or RDF files into your system or personal Vamp plugin location.

The plugin file extension and the location to copy into depend on which operating system you are using:

Your operating systemFile extension for pluginsWhere to put the plugin files
64-bit Windows.dll
  • Put 64-bit plugins in C:\Program Files\Vamp Plugins
  • Put 32-bit plugins in C:\Program Files (x86)\Vamp Plugins
  • If a plugin package is not described as 64-bit, then it is a 32-bit plugin. Most current plugins are 32-bit. Both can be used, if you put them in the right places.
32-bit Windows.dll
  • Put 32-bit plugins in C:\Program Files\Vamp Plugins
  • If a plugin package is not described as 64-bit, then it is a 32-bit plugin. Most current plugins are 32-bit. Only 32-bit plugins can be used on 32-bit Windows.
macOS.dylib
  • Put plugins for all users to use in /Library/Audio/Plug-Ins/Vamp
  • Put plugins for the current user only in $HOME/Library/Audio/Plug-Ins/Vamp
  • The Library folders are hidden by default; see here for details of how to show them
Linux, other Unix.so
  • Put plugins for all users to use in /usr/local/lib/vamp
  • Put plugins for the current user only in $HOME/vamp

You can alternatively set the VAMP_PATH environment variable to list the locations a host should look in for Vamp plugins.

VAMP_PATH should contain a semicolon-separated (on Windows) or colon-separated (OS/X, Linux) list of paths. If it is set, it will completely override the standard locations listed above.
