You do not! Version 3 is a free upgrade for version 2 (and version 1) license-holders.
For Audio Unit plugins: This is most likely because the DAW is running in a 32-bit mode. If you launch the DAW in 64-bit mode, you should be able to see & hear our plugins. Some information on 64-bit operation in Logic 9 and Ableton Live.
If you’re already using a 64-bit version of Ableton Live and can’t see our plugins, make sure that “Use Audio Units” is turned “On” in
Preferences > File Folder > Plug-in Sources.
In rare circumstances, it may be necessary to clear your Audio Units cache in order to get newly-installed AU plugins to show up. This generally only happens if the cache has somehow been corrupted. Find out how to clear your cache here.
For AAX plugins: Most likely because you’re running an older version of Pro Tools that doesn’t support 64-bit plugins. Goodhertz plugins are compatible with Pro Tools 11 and above.
For VST plugins: Depending on the DAW, your host may be looking for the plugins in C:\Program Files\Vstplugins while the default goodhertz VST plugin install location is C:\Program Files\Steinberg\Vstplugins. This can be changed during installation in the “Set custom install locations” screen, or you can adjust the plugin scanning directories in your host’s preferences.
Unlike most established plugin companies, we did not start out in the days of 32-bit, and when we started building plugins in 2014, we wanted to build the best — and quickly. Because the world is headed toward more and more 64-bit support, and because adding 32-bit support hampers our ability to write plugins efficiently, we will only be supporting 64-bit in current and future versions of Goodhertz plugins.
OS X 10.7+ and Windows 7+

We occasionally run sales (follow us on Twitter, Facebook, or Instagram to be notified), but we don’t have any educational discounts. That said, we do have something better (& it’s for everyone, not just students). If you post a track on SoundCloud or YouTube (like this), along with the Goodhertz plugin settings somewhere on the page (like this), let us know at firstname.lastname@example.org. If you do, we’ll send you a one-time 50%-off coupon (good for any combination of plugins, one-time per customer).
We don’t have bundles, but we do have bundle pricing for plugins purchased at the same time.
Buying three (3) plugins? — Save 15%
Buying four (4) plugins? — Save 20%
Buying five (5) or more? — Save 25%
This works for multiple seats of the same plugins, or single seats of different plugins. (Or a mixture thereof.)
This isn’t usually necessary, but if it is, here’s how you can clear your Audio Unit cache:
