⚠️ Requirements for installations without Steinberg Download Assistant

Before installing any of the VST Live components below, the following utilities must be installed resp. updated:

If they are missing or not up-to-date, the installation without the Steinberg Download Assistant will fail.

Installation of content resp. Content Sets

  • Download the desired content resp. Content Set. 
  • The content generally consists of vstsound files. Content containing multiple vstsound files is being provided as an ISO disk image. ISO disk images can be easily mounted as virtual volumes by double-click.
  • Double-click on one of the downloaded vstsound files.
  • The Steinberg Library Manager will be started automatically and offers the installation of all vstsound files in the same folder.
  • When downloading several content titles, it is good practice to move all vstsound files to the same folder first. In this way, all vstsound files can be installed by a single double-click.
