What tools have you used to unrar? They might be using RAR5 format. IIRC, the Keka (un)archiver can extract these.

Nope, Keka did not help. Also threw an error. I later tried it on a Windows box. On Windows it would complete the un-rar process but throw a warning and, upon closer inspection, leave one sample corrupted (something you would probably never notice if you use the library).

Did you contact Emmet at VSTBuzz? He normally is very helpful. I sure hope you get the help you need.

I had a similar issue. Turns out upgrading to the latest version of 7-Zip fixed it.
A well-behaved signature.

I was unable to un-rar the last two purchases I made. I re-downloaded multiple times and used probably half a dozen un-rar utilities. No success. I'm on a Mac.

The last time this happened to me the original developer of the library told me that VSTBuzz had been re-packaging his library and that this repackaged library created issues for most Mac and many Windows users. Apparently they use a rar tool that does not play nice. Back then, VSTBuzz allowed me to access the library in a single file which worked.

This time, however, they left me hanging completely. All I currently have is a set of rar files that is un-un-rar-able. And all that their support is sending me is one "use another un-rar tool" message after another. I have 30 years experience as an IT professional and I am completely stymied.


I used The Unarchiver (on Mac) to unzip Braaams and Atlantica with no problem. Though I did have to unzip each file separately rather than that thing where you unzip the first one and it does all of them.
Don't let me buy any more ethnic winds.

It‘s the Aurora Choir that refuses to unrar. And 7-zip is Wndows only.

$ 29 was a 2 days flash sale, as advertised, it was the second time ever on sale in this price, but never under it. I.e. you better grab the plugin, if you need it, when its $ 29. The marketing jargon then lives its own life.

Anyone purchased the Mcdsp EC-300 echo collection for $49 at JRR Shop?
I’m just getting the academic version at $49 on the Mcdsp product page. Kind of unusual to advertise the academic version...
Mistake maybe?

I was gonna recommend WinRAR, but I guess I shouldn’t be surprised that’s also a Windows-only product. :hihi:

Seems ridiculous to have to use Boot Camp or Parallels just to unarchive something.

I recall there being a solution on OSX for 7-Zip. Looking into it, even Unarchiver supports 7-zip or 7z. You must have a corrupt download?

Anyone still holding on to a Plugin Aliance April voucher that they're not going to use?

I've gifted my own voucher twice here in the marketplace, but now find myself voucher-less by their recent policy change :(

They ended up giving me access to a single file download which worked. This is the second time they had to do this within a month.
