Installing Bass Station

So i'm trying to install Bass Station on my Macbook Pro. 

The installation process runs fine, but i can't find any of the files located on my mac. 

They also don't show up in Ableton, i've checked the Plug ins/VST folder and theres nothing in there. 

Any help is greatly appreciated.

I am having the same exact problem with the same product...purchased as a free bundle with the Launchkey

Likewise, on Macbook Air


I found that Ableton's "file folder" prefs had to enable the "Use VST Plug-In System Folders" button

I'm having a problem finding Bass Station on Cubase 8 - I've installed the plug in but don't seem to have any files - only the option to uninstall it again. Very frustrating! Any help out there? thanks

Hi Henschelvontrapp,

If you are not seeing the Novation Bass Station software synthesizer after installation, it may be due to the plug-in path not being set in Cubase if working on a PC. Here is a video showing more information on this process:

If there are still issues accessing the plug-in, please contact us directly through the following link:
