It would be desirable to explain to dear colleagues one very important nuance - our laboratory of a sound "Stone Voices" is project noncommercial and therefore Mac computers for us are is unavailable, in particular in the Siberian remote place.
Donate to the project and there will be funds for acquisition of Mac :tu:

I'll keep an eye on this one. Love me some Granular, but I'll wait for a working 64 bit version.

Setup "PolyGAS" to your VST-plugin folder, default VST-plugin folder is C:\Program Files\VstPlugins.
Installation program get path to default VST-plugin folder from registry key: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\VST\VSTPluginsPath. If this path not exists then used default path i.e. C:\Program Files\VstPlugins.
Run of the setup program in Windows Vista, 7,8,8.1,10 only with the privileges of the administrator.


Hi vasysn, firstly I thank you for building this synth and offering it to us for free. It's very kind of you.

However, there is an issue with the installer, or to be more precise the UNINSTALLER, that you need to address.

As I pointed out earlier, the uninstaller removes the folder that Polygas was installed into.

Andywanders wrote:WARNING..!

The uninstaller removes the folder too.

Luckily I installed it in its own folder and not the parent 'Instruments' folder.


This needs to be fixed before someone here loses their entire VST Plugins folder.

You're obviously a very talented programmer and I'm sure it wouldn't take you long to fix this and release an update.

Such is the principle of uninstallation in NSIS - all installation files are deleted. If in this folder changes which are not set in NSIS installation script, then the folder were made is not deleted any more.

Thank you vaysan.

Just tested again in Reaper 5.4 x64 and Studio One 3.5.

Reaper. The VST loads fine but there's no sound output.

Studio One. Works perfectly.

OS: WIN 7 x64

I'm sure it does. I just thought you might be interested to know that it doesn't work on all systems, what with you being the developer and all.

Problem solved.

User error I'm afraid. I didn't have input monitor checked.

All's good now.

Thanks again for this :wink:

That might work only for the default location since it it's in its own folder, but what if someone manually chooses a destination (which is likely everyone) which also contains other files/vsti's?

As practice of use of installers/unistaller from NSIS showed, deleting files and folders which are written in a script happens their deleting on the relative paths in relation to unistll program.

piece of a code:
Code: Select all
RMDir "$INSTDIR\banks\"

Remove directory "banks" from $INSTDIR
Variable $INSTDIR is full path of folder where UninstallPolyGAS.exe
P.S. If the folder contains files which were not specified in a script, then it will not be deleted.

As showed experience, development of paid plug-ins it is not good. It is connected to many reasons, in particular there will be crackers which will crack a plug-in, and also with money transfer to Russia :(
However you can make donation in the amount of $10 for support of the project :tu:
