I tried downloading this synth so many times and it never worked. It won't show up in my VST folders or anything. Someone please help I will really appreciate it.

It is a 64bit plugin. You should use the x64 engine of your DAW. It also comes as vst3. Just try to install the vst2 for first. But your problem is probably, that after installing it, the DLL of the vst, is in the 3 subfolder. The first folder is named the same as the vst. The second folder is named as "Ronan Fed". The third folder is named again the same as the plugin (essence). There you should find the essence.dll. Just copy that dll to the first folder and it should work. With all his plugins it is like that. Not very clever but it is a detail in the end. All of his plugins a good. Hope it helps.

I have it running on Win7 with no issues. It has all the features I want from a synth and a very punchy sound. Trying to create gentle sounds wasn't easy but that might be down to my own ignorance. It's an excellent synth, that's for sure!

I was surprised and now it is one of my favorites.
