    Hi there

    I am currently operating Cubase SX3. It comes with a horde of plug-ins, plus I just downloaded the Fish Fillets plug-in (compression tools etc.).

    All the above plug-ins are sitting in the Vstplugins folder in the Cubase directory and appear in the Plug-in sub-menu under the Audio menu in Cubase. However, they seem to be grayed out.

    Am I missing something here? I've looked all over the manual and there doesn't seem to be any info to help me. I've actually recorded the vocals i want to subject the blockfish compression to already (i'm guessing the compression can be applied post-recording, though regardless of that fact, I still can't access the plug-ins).

    I've also been told about normalising tracks, if they've been recorded at a low volume to get them up to a desirable level, though I haven't been able to find the function in Cubase.

    Please help (first question most important) . Thanks

    P.S. All the plug-ins have been 'ticked' as available in the plug-in information window.

    Where are you trying to load the plugs? Inserts or sends or are you setting up auxilliaries? It matters. Are you sure you read the manual regarding effects? It seems to me you're going about it the wrong way. This is legit software right?
