Installing and setting up Serato Sample

Serato Sample officially supports Ableton Live, FL Studio, Logic Pro, and Native Instrument's Maschine. The plugin is provided in two standard formats : VST and AU (Component).

Other DAW software that supports the VST/AU plugin standards should also work with Serato Sample. However we have not officially tested on these other platforms and so we can't guarantee performance. We'd love you to give it a go and let us know if you have any problems!
