 Installing Patches

Locate your Spectrasonics Steam* folder and copy the folder of the Producer's name (i.e. ‘Peter James’ ) and it's contents into this location:

NOTE: If you are a previous customer and already have a folder for that producer and subsequent subfolders installed in this location DO NOT replace the existing producers folder with this new one! This will result in losing your previously installed patches. ONLY copy the contents inside this folder into the existing producers folder.
