After setting up all the servers, launch FXTeleportSetup.exe
on your master machine. Follow the wizard instructions. When asked for
"Setup Type", choose "Master (Host) installation". When all
files have been written to your computer, the FXT Configure applet will
launch (available from Start menu for further use).
The FXT Configure applet is used to
Install and Remove FXT VST wrappers (small applications accessible from your
VST host as ordinary plug-ins and serving as bridges to teleported FX).
Using the "Add" and
"Remove" keys, specify all paths to VST plug-ins you plan to use in
local mode (without accessing the servers). Please note that you need to
install identical versions of your VST plug-ins on both master and slave
machines in order to freely switch between local and teleported modes of the
Select one of the VST paths as a place to
install the VST wrappers (the folder must be accessible from your VST host).
Wait for all the plug-ins and servers to
appear in the list at the left of the window, then choose the plug-ins you plan
to work with and click "Install". The FXT VST wrappers will be
installed in the chosen VST folder on your host machine. Note that you can
freely move installed wrappers to any VST subfolder you like.
Make sure FXT Server is launched on
all your slave machines. Launch your VST host and check that it has scanned all
the new plug-ins. (Users of SONAR, Project 5 or any other DAW host without
native VST support will have to launch VST DX Adapter or DirectXer) in order to
make all the new plug-ins available for the host.)
Now you will find special plug-ins named
"<plug-in name> (LAN)" available in the VST menu of your host
application. Those plug-ins are the FXT wrappers, which you use to launch the
selected plug-ins on your server machine(s).
