Recording battery 3 into cubase 4LE?

    I bought the presonus firestudio project which came with cubase LE 4. and I was wondering if it supported vst instruments other than the HALionOne insturment I see that looks to have come with the software. i know in Cubase 4, you can just click devices/ vst instruments and then select. one. But it doesn't seem to be on this version. Is there something I must do in my other instruments like battery 3, absynth, kontact, kore player, etc. to get them accessible in cubase LE 4? Also not sure if sounds in absynth, kontact, battery 3 etc. are only playable through their own software or if I can just access these sounds through cubase. Like isn't a vst instrument a bunch or small wav files known as samples? or is there an emulation/rendering thing these programs do to get their sounds. Whats the difference between rewire and vst insturments?

    I am basically trying to record midi tracks in cubase 4 LE using my full library of sounds instead of just HALionONe instrument. Also, is this a rewire issue or plug-in issue? I am not too sure the differences of all these. Thanks

    Just make sure they are installed in the correct folder. C:\program files\steinberg\vst

    If you are on a 64 bit Windows system, c:\program files x86\steinberg\vst

    If you are on a Mac, I can't presently help you.

    Battery 3 and cubase 4le

    So your saying just save my battery program inside my steinberg/vst folder? instead of putting it in C:/ Program files/battery? which is installed like this automatically? And then I will have the option to select it in my midi instrument track as a vst instrument?

    Check your VST folder and make sure there is a battery.dll file there. When you install Battery it should ask you where to install the VST .dll file. If it doesn't, find out where it installed the file and point Cubase there.
