Q & A

General Questions

Can I sell commercially songs played with WEDGE FORCE instruments?

Absolutely, our instruments are designed for professional musicians like you!

How do I create a new user account?

Your user account will be created automatically during the checkout process of your first purchase from our website. Further purchases can be added to your account.

Alternatively, you can create a user account from here. Please, use this option if you have already purchased one of our products from a reseller.

It installed successfully but I can't find the application icon?

Our instruments are not programs/applications, they are plugin instruments which are designed to work inside a Digital Audio Workstation (DAW) host application. You’ll need a DAW/Sequencer/Host (Cubase, Pro Tools, Garage Band, etc.) to open and play WEDGE FORCE instruments.

What is a DAW/Sequencer/Host application?

A DAW is a Digital Audio Workstation, also referred to as a Sequencer or Host application.

We support the following plugin formats: VST2, VST3, AAX and AU.

We support the following DAW applications: Cubase, Pro Tools, Logic Pro X, Sonar, Garage Band and others compatible with the above plugin formats.

Is the output mono or stereo?

You can insert the WEDGE FORCE instruments on both mono or stereo tracks. On stereo tracks the L and R channels will be different when using effects. Stereo tracks might be required by some software effects like flanger and delay.

Can I play only with DI sound?

Wedge Force synths include tons of effects with endless configurations including (tube overdrive, distortion, eq, flanger, delay and cabinet simulation).

DI sound is dull so you’re going to need lots of effects. The best way for a guitar synth to sound right is to use the exact same effects used by guitarists and to replace only the physical guitar with a software guitar.

To make this possible our “Synthetic Force Engine“:

  • outputs an accurate clean DI sound, just like a physical guitar, as expected by the guitar rigs.
  • outputs the full frequency range, just as it comes from the guitar pickups.
  • outputs without any effects nor modifications of the signal.
  • ready to be plugged into any software or hardware guitar effects equipment.

The clean DI sound is not intended for listening. To achieve the sound from the demo songs you can use the built in effects. If you need more effects you can add additional third party guitar effect plugins (not included) like Guitar Rig Pro or TH3.

I have a DAW/Sequencer/Host. How do I open my WEDGE FORCE Instrument?

Each DAW container has a slightly different way to do this and your DAW should provide step by step instructions of how to use software instruments.

In most cases you need to add a new instrument track and assign a digital instrument to it. After that, you need to assign the guitar effects plugin to that track as well.

There is a delay (latency) when I play live. What can I do?

“Latency” is the time from pressing the key on the MIDI keyboard until you hear the sound from the speakers. For live performances you should aim for the lowest possible latency. The latency of our instruments is close to zero (less than 1 millisecond). To keep it this way you need to use a high-quality sound interface. We prefer the sound interfaces by RME.

You can try lowering the IO buffers for better latency from the ASIO settings of your sound interface.

(at your own risk) If expensive sound interfaces are out of your budget you can try the free ASIO4ALL software driver which may (or may not) provide better latency than your built-in sound interface drivers.

Is there a localized version?

No, the user interface and the documentation of our instruments are English only.

Technical Support

What platforms and OS are supported?

On PC we support WINDOWS OS versions which are officially supported by Microsoft.

On Mac we support OSX version 10.5 or later.

Unless you have a good reason to use the latest OS version, we recommend you to use the latest version minus one (N-1), on both PC or MAC, to avoid issues with suppliers lagging to support the latest OS drivers and APIs.

What plugin formats do we support?

We support: VST2, VST3, AAX and AU plugin formats.

We support both 32 and 64 bit DAW containers but we strongly recommend you to move to 64bit because 32bit version will be deprecated.

There is no standalone application version of our software instruments – a DAW application is required to play them.

What are the hardware requirements for playing WEDGE FORCE instruments?

Check the hardware requirements of your DAW application.

You could consider upgrades in the following order of importance:

  • Higher quality sound Interface (for example PCIE board from RME, etc.)
  • 16+ GB of RAM
  • 64bit OS and DAW
  • Higher CPU clock speed should be preferred over higher number of cores
  • SSD Drive for faster loading

I use Receptor and I need tech support for one of your instruments.

All technical issues with regards to our instruments and Receptor are handled directly by Muse.
