Loading VST/MIDI instruments manually

Dorico Pro automatically loads the plug-in instances required for your project, according to the current playback template. However, you can also load VST/MIDI instruments manually, either into new plug-in instances or into existing ones to replace existing VST/MIDI instruments.


- Any VST instruments you want to use are saved on your computer.

- You have connected any MIDI devices you want to use.


Steinberg recommends plugging MIDI devices into your computer before starting Dorico Pro. Similarly, if your device is not recognized, we recommend restarting Dorico Pro.


1.- Optional: If you want to load a VST/MIDI instrument into a new plug-in instance, click Add  in the corresponding section of the VST and MIDI Instruments panel.

2.- In the plug-in instance into which you want to load a new VST/MIDI instrument, select the one you want to load from the menu.
