How to Install and Activate the Plug-in
The first step is to download and install the plug-in from the RedWirez website[^1^]. You can buy it solo for $49.00, or get it free with the purchase of the complete BIGBox library[^2^], which contains all the RedWirez IRs in one package. Once you have completed the purchase, you will receive a download link and a license code on your My Stuff page[^1^]. You will need the license code to activate the plug-in.
To install the plug-in, simply run the installer and follow the instructions on the screen. You can choose between 32-bit and 64-bit versions for Windows VST, OSX VST and AU, RTAS for Pro Tools 9 and 10, or AAX Native 64-bit for Pro Tools 11[^2^]. Make sure you install the plug-in in the correct folder for your audio workstation.
To activate the plug-in, launch your audio workstation and load an instance of RedWirez MixIR2 AU VST V1.0.169 PC on an audio track or a bus. You will see a dialog box asking you to enter your license code. Copy and paste the code from your My Stuff page[^1^] and click OK. The plug-in will then be activated and ready to use.
How to Browse and Load IRs from the RedWirez Library or Other Sources
The next step is to browse and load IRs from the RedWirez library or other sources into the plug-in. The plug-in has a simple and efficient drag-and-drop IR browser that lets you navigate through your computer's hard drive using a nested folder structure in the right panel[^2^]. You can also filter IRs by type (cabinet, reverb, EQ, etc.), by name, by size, or by date modified using the buttons at the top of the browser.
To load an IR into the plug-in, simply drag it from the browser into an empty IR block in the left panel[^2^]. The IR block will turn green and display the name of the IR file. You can load up to 64 IRs in one instance of the plug-in[^2^]. You can also drag presets from the browser into an empty slot at the bottom of the left panel[^2^]. Presets are files that contain a combination of IRs and their settings that you can save and recall later.
If you want to load IRs from other sources than RedWirez, such as third-party or previous generation RedWirez IRs[^3^], you a474f39169
