I can't open Syntorial in my DAW

Syntorial is a standalone application, designed to run on its own, not in a DAW. After installation you'll find it in:

  • Mac: “Applications”
  • Windows: "Program Files (x86)\Syntorial"

However, the synth used in Syntorial is available as a VST/AU plugin, that IS meant to be used in a DAW. It's known as Primer, and it's available for customers who have purchased the full version of Syntorial. To get Primer:

  1. Log in at syntorial.com/account
  2. Select "Downloads"
  3. Download Primer
