64bit plugin rollout started, announcing mkII plugin versions

The very first 64bit plugin versions are out now, starting with the plugins from the public beta test earlier this summer: epicVerb, BaxterEQ, preFIX, NastyDLAmkII, NastyVCS and DensityMkIII. All versions have been carefully revised, are backwards compatible and some includes bugfixes and improvements as well. VST3 versions are not (yet) included due to stability issues. For further release notes and downloads please refer to the download page.

The remaining VoS plugins are planned to be (re-) released one-by-one until end of this year. Most likely, they will reappear as mkII versions πŸ™‚ First one will be FerricTDS mkII which is already in the finishing process and to be released early September.

stay tuned!


  1. Great news! Thanks a bunch!

  2. Came by the site for the first time in a couple of years. Completely by coincidence, and mostly for nostalgic reasons. Loved the plugins back in the day, but haven’t been able to use them since I switched to a 64bit system. Noticed that some of the plugins said “Includes 64bit version now”. Got really stoked and started downloading. Absolutely fantastic! And then I noticed the date of the update – they were released today! Mind blown!
    Herbert, thank you for all of this.
    Best regards

  3. Herb you are truely generous. thankyou for your work.

  4. Excellent, thanks for the good work!

  5. πŸ‘ Nice! Thank you, Herbert, for your devotion!

  6. heavymetalmixer says:

    Awesome! I can finally use these plugins (those 6) in every project πŸ˜€
    Thanks a lot, man!

  7. No word on macOS versions? I’m dying to use these again on my projects but not really willing to go back to Windows again

  8. Seems there are problems with HiDPI mode in Studio One and Cubase.

    • Thanks for the report! HiDPI mode is indeed tricky and potentially affects all plugins not providing separate high resolution UI assets – the forums are full with issues on that topic. Could you please double-check if the problem also occurs if the Windows HiDPI mode is used (can be set to override the DAW App)?

  9. thaaaaaaaaannnkkkksss!!!!!

  10. i use the 32 bit Baxter EQ all the time in reaper. Just downloaded the new version. Will be nice to run it natively without having to switch back and forth between plugin windows. This is so cool!. Thanks.


    May I ask for a favor please? As I ditched g completely (you can imagine I’ve got my reasons πŸ˜‰ and my systems won’t let me even download stuff from their services, is there any chance for a different download cloud?

    Best Regards,

  12. Amazing news! Looking forward to BootEQ mkII – one of my fave colour EQs ever!

  13. Richard Penrose says:

    Wow thankyou for all your hard work to make these wonderful plugins available for 64bit. I really appreciate all you are doing.

  14. Sebastian says:

    Thank you very much for your effort. These are the plugins I started with 10 years ago.
    I have two bug reports. The 64bit plugins do not show up in Reaper and they crash Harrison Mixbus.
    Please look into this.
    And once again: Thank you very much. πŸ™‚

    • Make sure you are putting them in the right folder for reaper to find them. They work perfectly in reaper for me.

      • Sebastian says:

        Thanks, but this is exaclty what I did. Reaper recognises them during scanning but they do not show up in Reapers pluginlist. Clearing the plugin cache and rescanning didn’t help.

  15. bored_jackal says:

    Awesome! Thanks! If you would use some funding platform like Patreon or Buy Me a Coffee to fund your projects like this, I’m sure you’d get a ton of support.

  16. Grate News! Grate Plugs! Thanks!

  17. Javier Ramallo says:

    I am looking forward to seeing the “Thrillseeker XTC” in this new era. I used it a lot in the past with excellent results.

    Thanks for it.

  18. Javier Ramallo says:

    by the way: Herb you are truely generous. Really thnx for your work.

  19. I’m extremely excited about this. I’ve been using VOS plugins since I started doing the KVR OSC in 2011. Thank you very much indeed.

  20. Slick hdr 64x?

  21. Awesome!

  22. zabukowski says:

    Can we hope for TesslaSE to be ported to x64? After all these years, I still haven’t found a plugin which does what TesslaSE does ❀

  23. This is fantastic news – When I ran a 32 bit system, I used all your plugins regularly. I have been missing them so much since switching to a 64 bit system. I especially miss BootEQ – That thing makes everything sound good with very little hassle.

  24. The download links on the download page don’t really work correctly, Instead of downloading the zip files, they simply open the zip file in the Google Drive viewer without the ability to download – it’s really frustrating!
    You can fix this by editing the sharing links that Google Drive gives you before you run them through bit.ly. The link that Google drive gives you should be in this format:
    if you change them to:
    and re-shorten them with bit.ly they will act as direct download links.

    • There is always a download option on that Google Drive viewer in the upper right corner. Does that not work in your case? Which browser?

      • A bit of further investigation revealed that one of my Chrome extensions was causing the Save to Drive / Download / Menu icons to display as black on a black background. All good now.
        Thanks for the awesome plugins – I phased out all my 32-bit plugins a while ago and it’s great to have Density and EpicVerb back in my arsenal again!

  25. EpicVerb and Ferric TDS:
    I have the 32 bit versions and they work great.
    However, I downloaded the 64 bit versions and
    I ran into a small problem.

    I have two computers (laptop and desktop).
    Both computers are Windows 7 64 bit Pro.
    I use REAPER (64 bit) DAW.

    My desktop is offline (never connected
    to the internet). My laptop is connected
    to the internet, but I have the Windows
    updates turned off.

    When I tested the two 64 bit plugins on
    my laptop (the laptop is used for testing
    and mobile use), the two plugins worked

    However, when I tested these plugins
    on my desktop, I got the “MSVCR120 dll
    file missing” error.

    This puzzles me because the OS system
    that is installed on both computers
    is from the exact same DVD install disk
    (I do have two licenses so that I can use
    the OS on two different computers,
    but that has nothing to do with this issue).

    Every 64 bit and 32 bit plugin that I own
    works fine on my desktop computer
    (including the Variety Of Sound 32 bit
    versions of EpicVerb and Ferric TDS).

    I realize that I can download the MSVCR120
    dll file on my laptop (internet computer)
    and transfer that file (USB drive) to my
    desktop computer and install it there to
    make the plugins work on my desktop.

    But, why?
    Every plugin that I own in my existing
    collection does not require the MSVCR120 file.

    Is there a version of the VOS 64 bit plugins
    that do not require the MSVCR120 available
    for download?

    I not interested in installing that file
    onto my desktop because everything
    works fine there (except these
    two new 64 bit versions of EpicVerb
    and Ferric).

    The puzzling thing is that MSVCR120
    file must exist on my laptop because
    the VOS 64 bit versions work there.

    The OS system is installed from the same
    DVD install disk on both computers and
    the laptop (internet computer) has never
    had a Windows update since I installed
    the OS from the DVD.

    I guess that VOS has to use this C++
    system for its programming. But, if
    so, why do the VOS 32 bit versions
    work fine on the desktop computer,
    but the 64 bit versions have been changed?

    My OS is 64 bit, the DAW is 64 bit, I bridge
    the 32 bit plugins.

  26. Herbert thank you very much for this 64bit update. NastyDLA, epicVerb, Ferric and Density are all favorites. It seems though that the Malware Bytes heuristic filter reports a positive on the zip files. Funny thing is it doesn’t report anything on the unzipped folders. Probably a false positive but I am just bringing it up.

    Keep up the good work and thanks for giving back to the community.

  27. Concrete 3vidence says:

    I cannot find any of the 64-bit plugins on Reaper 5.99 (x64)

  28. For me all 64 and 32 bit plugins are working great in REAPER. Both at the same time.

  29. Guillermo Urzua Quiroz says:

    Just Awesome

  30. Concrete 3vidence says:

    Hey! Ok now I can see them. I just did a fresh install of Win 10. Yesterday I didn’t see any, but today I can see the VoS plugins, no matter how I move them to vstplugins directory.

    I don’t know what was wrong, maybe a windows update fixed? Anyway, very great. BaxterEQ is golden mastering tool! Waiting for more 64-bit.

    Thank you for these!

  31. Most welcome back good Sir! ❀ πŸ™‚

  32. Im really glad that some of the plugins are coming out as 64-bit, thank you for that!! But I need to ask about the Thrillseeker VBL- any plans on that too? This is my main and favourite master bus plugin ever- nothing comes close to this and it is essential to my sound, so I would be over the moon to see it 64-bit someday… πŸ™‚ Hope you’re great and healthy and I wish you the best.

  33. Dear Herbert… We need to have the nasties and Mix Rescue returned from the dead as 64bit. These are literally the best tools ever. PLEASE. πŸ™‚


  1. […] end of August I started re-releasing my very own plugins and also did mkII versions for FerricTDS,Β ThrillseekerXTC and TesslaSE. I will continue that route […]
