Getting Started with the Arousor

A generation 2 or higher iLok USB dongle is required for both the demo and full version of the Arousor.

The demo and the full version are identical and use the same installer.

Download one of the installers above and open it once downloading is complete. See below for Installing the Arousor to a AVID VENUE system. Follow the prompts on the installer and be sure to choose the right VST, VST3, AAX, and AU plug-in folders. Once the installation is complete, you must activate your Arousor license(s) to a generation 2 or higher iLok USB dongle with iLok License Manager.

Installing the Arousor to AVID VENUE Systems

Installation may differ depending on your VENUE system. You will need a blank USB Flash Drive to install the Arousor to your VENUE System. The Arousor is only compatible with AVID VENUE version 4.61 and above.

1. Download the VENUE Plug-in Installer (.ZIP file) from the link above.
2. Unzip the file and copy the “AAX Plug-ins” folder to the root directory of your USB flash drive. Do not modify the contents of this folder.
3. Insert the USB flash drive into your VENUE system and it should take over the rest of the installation for you. If it does not, refer to the documentation for your specific version of VENUE software.
