How to use the trial version: download and install the main application (VST plugin and Standalone). If you bought a license prior to installing, you can directly authorize your copy within the installer. By installing just the main application you'll have access to five of the six sound engines. If you also wish to test some samples, download and install the samplepacks. The sampled instruments have to be copied in [APP FOLDER]\GSinstruments\. You can choose a different location and set the appropriate path in the Global Options Menu.
The instrument comes with no factory presets, so probably you won't hear any sound coming from the Organ and the Synth sections, unless you prepare your sounds. Please refer to the manual for this.
DEMO LIMITATIONS: the software shows a reminder screen at the beginning. Click “RUN DEMO” to start using the demo version. It will play for 10 minutes, after that the reminder screen will appear again, the sound will be muted and the RUN DEMO button will be disabled. Saving single programs or banks is also disabled in Demo mode.
PLEASE READ THE WHOLE MANUAL!
PLEASE NOTE: This plugin is not compatible with Pro Tools and is not guaranteed to work with 3rd party plugin format adapters.

Most of these softwares have a nag screen and a nag noise protection. In DEMO mode you'll hear
a white noise burst for 2 seconds every 10 at a very low volume. There are no other limitations, unless otherwise
stated in the product's description page.
PLEASE! SUPPORT INDEPENDENT SOFTWARE DEVELOPERS by purchasing the software you use. Stay away from fraudulent websites that sell illegal copies of software for a fraction of the original cost and avoid the temptation to download software illegally from peer to peer networks. Your purchase can make the difference between an independent developer being able to create and support their software, and going out of business.
Please buy the software you use directly from the manufacturers’ web stores or authorized resellers. If you can't afford the expensive, “big name” software, keep in mind that there is always an affordable alternative out there. Find those alternatives and avoid warez at all costs!
