How to install Glitch on Windows

Optional (strongly recommended): Delete any old versions you may have installed

When upgrading to a newer version of Glitch, or upgrading from the demo version to the full version, it is strongly recommended that you completely delete any previous versions from your system first.

  • Using Windows Explorer, navigate to your VST plug-ins folder.
  • Delete the files Glitch2.dll and Glitch2.res (or simply delete the entire Glitch2_32bit folder).
  • Repeat for both the 32-bit and 64-bit versions, if both are installed.
  • Empty the Recycle Bin to permanently delete the files.
  • Load your DAW and perform a plug-in rescan to confirm that Glitch is gone.
  • Proceed to install the new version of Glitch, following the steps below.

Note: There is no way to unlock or activate the demo version. You must simply delete the demo and install the full version instead.

Download and open the ZIP file

Download to your computer and open it in Windows Explorer.

You should see the following items inside:

  • Glitch2_32bit
  • Glitch2_64bit
  • Glitch2_Presets

Copy the plug-in files to your VST plug-ins folder

Copy the entire Glitch2_32bit folder into your 32-bit VST plug-ins folder.

Copy the entire Glitch2_64bit folder into your 64-bit VST plug-ins folder.

If you don't know the exact location of your VST plug-ins folder, please refer to your DAW's user manual or options screen for more information.

Some common locations include:

  • C:\Program Files\Steinberg\VstPlugins\
  • C:\Program Files\Common Files\Steinberg\VST2\

Optional: Copy the preset files to your Documents folder

Copy the entire Glitch2_Presets folder to a common location that can be easily accessed, such as your Documents folder.

Restart your DAW and re-scan your plug-ins

To complete the installation, it may be necessary to restart your DAW and perform a plug-in rescan.

In rare cases, it may also be necessary to completely reboot your computer.
