VST Vintage Tube Warmer/Maximizer

Download the Windows VST-Plugin (version 0.6 - 22/05/2010 - 188kB) : SH-VintageTube.zip or the MAC OS Audio Unit (AU) & VST (version 0.6 - 05/09/2010 - 586kB): WarmerMaximizerMAC.zip

For the reason that the plug-in development uses the JAVA framework you need to have an installed JAVA Runtime Environment.
If you don't have the JRE (JAVA Runtime Environment) installed then you'll get it here: http://www.java.com/download/manual.jsp

Just unzip the dedicated ZIP-File and copy the plug-in folder into your VST plug-in directory.

1.) Unzip the dedicated ZIP-File
2.) Copy WarmerMaximizer.vst to ~/Library/Audio/Plug-Ins/VST
3.) Copy WarmerMaximizer.component to ~/Library/Audio/Plug-Ins/Components

Important: To use the Audio Units you need to copy the *.vst as well.
