I downloaded the demo and tried it. Fun!

Basically, Mixcraft just needs to be scanning the folder where you installed the VST. In my case, the VST was automatically installed to my default VST folder, which is C:\Program Files\VST\.

Click on the File menu in Mixcraft, select Preferences, and in the Effects preferences, click on "Edit VST Effects Folder." Add the folder with the plugin (warning: only add actual VST folders to this list. Adding just any old program folder can keep Mixcraft from loading properly), then click "Re-Scan all VST Effects."

If you're not sure where you installed it, the plugin's DLL file is called "Harmony EFX.dll," so look for that.

Add a vocal to a track, and then click on the FX button to the left of the track. "Harmony EFX" should be listed among the VST effects.

Thanks I found it on the list. Not sure I like it yet, maybe I'm just not good enough with it yet but all the hamonies sound very machine like vs. a natural sound. I saw on your web site you mention Melodine I might do some research on that for a more natural sound. Thanks again Jimmy
