The plugin needs a vst host to run. If you don't have a one we can recommend the
very easy to use and leightweight Hermann Seib SaviHost:
Download from developer:
Installation: Just place the "savihost" file next to the "OP-X PRO-II.dll" and rename
it too to "OP-X PRO-II". The dll can be found in a folder called "SonicProjects" in
the place you've installed the plugin to. Now simply doubleclick the renamed file to launch the plugin.
In "Devides->Wave" and "Devices->MIDI" you still have to choose the right audio and MIDI
drivers. If you dont have an ASIO soundcard then install the free Asio4All drivers:
Minimal system requirements:
- Windows XP / Vista / 7 / 8
- A 32bit vst host or a 64bit vst host with included bridge info
- ASIO soundcard info
- Minimum Intel Pentium 4 3.0 Ghz
- Recommended: Core2Duo or higher
Protools 8: Fxpansion adapter needed. Learn more here.

Of course we can't check out all possible system and host combinations.
So it's up to you to test it in your current configuration. If the demo version
works the full version will too.
Intel Core i5/i7 CPUs:
Deactivate Intel Speed Step in the BIOS. Sometimes it's also called "CPU
C-States". When this energy saving function is active the CPU multiplicator
is being changed constantly which can lead to varying pitch when stopping
playback in a sequencer.
CPU consumption / multiple instances / Cubase 5:
On the lowest recommended system, Pentium IV 3 gHz, you can work well
with one instance but not more to have enough headroom. There's a remarkable
performance change however using Core 2 duo CPUs, with these you can use
many instances. Using a the new Core i7 processors CPU load drops to 1-2%
using all voices.
Here's a short Cubase 5 demo using 7 instances:
Live 8 Demo:
The same session with Ableton Live 8.2 on a medicore office PC without a dedicated
soundcard just using Asio4all drivers:
Protools 8 Demo:
The synth works well in Pro Tools 8 (Windows only) when converted to RTAS with the
newest (2.1.1) Fxpansion VST to RTAS adapter:
21 Instances Session:
Here's an ultimate stress test session featuring 21 instances of OP-X PRO-II in two
systems and several different sequencers:
Windows Vista / 7 / 8:
If your plugins folder resides within the program files folder it may be
needed to run your vst host in administrator mode.
For this right-click on the application shortcut, choose "compatibility"
and check "run as administrator". This gives back full writing rights.
More about it here.
Cubase 5 and up:
Also works fine without running in administrator mode based on our various tests, but simply be aware that
if the plugin resides within the system's program files folder (e.g. VST2 plugins folder) the licensing
data and newly created banks and presets will be written to virtual store instead to the conceived place. So if you
need to have direct file access to those (e.g. for backup) you'll find them there instead of the place
where you expect them to be.
