Starting a trial for one of our plugins is a very simple process. First, download the installer for the plugin that you want either from the product page or by using our Installation Manager.

After you are finished with the installation, open the plugin in your DAW. The plugin will display an "Activation needed" screen. Click it to start, then enter the email address and password you use to login into our website and the plugin will contact our server and download your license file to your computer.

You can also use our Offline Activation method by downloading a license file on a computer that has an internet connection and then transferring that file to an offline studio computer if needed. A third way of authorizing your Plugin Alliance plugins is by using a USB drive. For more information about all three methods, please consult our activation manual.
