HFS Plus or HFS+ is a file system developed by Apple Inc. to replace their Hierarchical File System (HFS) as the primary file system used in Macintosh computers (or other systems running Mac OS). It is also one of the formats used by the iPod digital music player. HFS Plus is also referred to as Mac OS Extended (or, erroneously, “HFS Extended”), where its predecessor, HFS, is also referred to as Mac OS Standard (or, erroneously, as “HFS Standard”). During development, Apple referred to this filesystem with the codename Sequoia. Mac OS Extended format is Supported by Mac OS 8.1 and Later

Audio Units (AU) are used by Apple applications such as GarageBand, Soundtrack Pro, Logic Express, Logic Pro, Final Cut Pro, MainStage and most 3rd party audio software developed for Mac OS X and macOS Sierra such as Ardour, Ableton Live, REAPER, Studio One Professional and Digital Performer, among others.AU Audio Unit Installation for macOS (Previously Mac OS X, then OS X): 

Instructions:

1.- After download, double-click on the .dmg file (Apple disk image format, HFS+ volume).Syntheway Audio Units and VST for Mac OS X and macOS Sierra downloads are packed and available in ".dmg" file, an Apple disk image format. Version 10.4 "Tiger", 10.5 "Leopard", 10.6 "Snow Leopard", 10.7 "Lion", 10.8 "Mountain Lion", 10.9: "Mavericks" decodes these files automatically. This will open the file with DiskImageMounter utility. Otherwise, right-click the .dmg file and select Open with > DiskImageMounter from the menu. A dialog window will appear, verifying the file and mounting it. Once mounted, the .dmg will appear in the Finder sidebar under the "Devices" header along with the hard drive.

2.- Open a Finder window (click the "Finder" icon in the dock). Highlight the mounted image file within Finder's sidebar. A list of the files within the .dmg will appear in the main Finder window pane.

3.- Drag the files you wish to extract to the desired destination on your computer as for example to your Mac desktop or directly drag the Audio Unit (.component) to your "Macintosh HD/Library/Audio/Plug-Ins/Components/" folder.

 

4.- Unmount the .dmg after you have extracted all desired files by clicking the small "Eject" icon next to the mounted image in Finder's sidebar. Additionally, you can right-click (Ctrl-click) the mounted .dmg icon on the desktop and select "Eject" or simply unmount the virtual drive by dragging it to the Trash (Note that this will not delete the files from your computer, the dmg file will still be there).

5.- If you have the extracted files in your Mac desktop, move the ".component" file to the Components folder in your audio plugins folder. Usually Macintosh HD/Library/Audio/Plug-Ins/Components/

6.- If your DAW is running, close it and restart it. When your DAW starts up, it will rescan your plugins folder and detect your recently installed plugin.

Finding the Audio Plugins folder: The plugin folder is nested in the Macintosh HD Library. There are usually a minimum of two Libraries on your Mac, one in Macintosh HD and another in your user account. You should only place the plugins in the Macintosh HD Library so that it can be accessed by all users on the computer. The usual location of the folder should be: Macintosh HD/Library/Audio/Plug-Ins/

 

VST Installation for macOS (Previously Mac OS X, then OS X):

5.- If you have the extracted files in your Mac desktop, move the files to the Cubase VST folder. Usually Macintosh HD/Library/Audio/Plug-ins/VST.

6.- If your Cubase is running, close it and restart it. When your Cubase starts up, it will rescan your plugins folder and detect your recently installed VST plugin.

Cubase Notes:

  • -The macOS version of Cubase only stores VST plugins in one folder (*) -> "Library/Audio/Plug-ins/VST" Or if you're not logged in with administrative access, these sub-folders are in the -> "Users/[Username]/Library/Audio/Plug-ins" folder.

  • - Place the provided .vst in the VST (Plug-ins) folder.

  • - Follow instructed under the Cubase operations manual and

  • restart the program if needed in order to re-scan new .vst plugins.

  • - Now, the Syntheway VST Plugin (Syntheway Vendor) must be recognized by Cubase as a native .vst format (VST for Mac).

(*) Changing Folders in Cubase: If you decide to move your VST plugins into a different folder, you'll also need to tell Cubase where the new VST plugin folder is located. To do this, open the VST "Plug-in Paths" dialog box and click "Add." Navigate to the location of the new folder, select it and click "OK." When you're installing new VST plugins after changing the plugin folder location, be sure to specify the new location in the program's installer, as most plugins will automatically install into the Steinberg directory

Syntheway Audio Units and VST are Loadable Bundles, using Cocoa framework and xCode Integrated Development Environment (IDE) written in Objective C. Bundles provide a simplified interface for end users and a convenient way to deliver software in macOS, Mac OS X and OS X operating systems.
