Equator Updated .dll file

 I installed the update but it did not update the dynamic link in my vst folder. How do I fix to run the updated version?>

Hi there,

I recommend that you re-download the latest version of Equator from My ROLI, make sure all audio applications are closed, and then run the installer. Please let me know if this helps or if you have any more questions.


didn't work, Ive tried and tried

If you manually delete the existing .DLL file and then re-install Equator, does this work? If not, are you receive any sort of error message?

No sir. I’ve tried multiple times, it will not create the .dll file, and the installer is not letting me choose a specific directory or location for me to install. I am an Ableton user so it would help for me to be able to install into my vstfolder
And there is no error message shown

A few few details will help me understand this:

  • If you open Equator as a standalone, what version number is shown?
  • In what folder are you looking for the plugin? Have you removed the previous version from this location?
  • Are you downloading and installing the version of Equator with the bit depth (32- or 64-bit) of your operating system?

same issue here. version is updated in standalone but equator's vst dll does not seem to be copied anywhere.  windows 8 & ableton.

is there a standard directory the dll can be found to copy in manually?

I have the same issue. I installed Equator. I can run him standalone, it works with seabord rise 49. But i cannot  find the equator.dll to make it work as a plugin inside Ableton Live. I looked for the usual places where Roli says they put the file but it is still missing. What should I do?

My actual Equator standalone version is 1.11.2

Thanks for your help!!!

I found it- it was in a program folder- go to the original install instructions for equator and it will tell you exactly where the file is. That’s what I did

Hi Clark, I allready tried that but no trace of this dll file on my computer... I'm a bit lost and really annoyed... Nobody from Roli answers my questions... and it seems I'm not the only one experiencing this issue... I already tried to reinstall the whole equator... still nothing...

Same issue than Chris 2 messages on top... Equator installed, reinstalled, no dll nor in the places mentioned by Roli or anywhere else... standalone version works with my seaboard 49 but no VST.  Setup: Windows 10 + Ableton live 9 suite + equator 1.11.2...  is there someone at Roli who can answer our questions please? 

Thanks a lot

Hi Ronan,

  • In what folder(s) are you looking for the plugin?
  • Are you downloading and installing the version of Equator with the bit depth (32- or 64-bit) of your operating system?
  • Have you tried reinstalling Equator with all audio applications closed?



I found the dll file here C:\Program Files\Common Files\Steinberg\VST2\Equator.dll You should also. Delete and reinstall
