Plugin Installation (M-Track 2X2).

Hi, I have just bought an M-Track 2X2 and am trying to figure out how to install the software that came with it, i.e. Cubase, AIR Creative FX Collection, AIR Mini Grand,
AIR Strike, AIR Xpand!2
I am new to sound editing etc and at first didn't realise they were plugins. Now I am confused about where exactly to install them to. I do have Adobe Audition but am confused by the different options i.e. where to put the 32bit,64bit (& 'Factory content' with expand 2).
Can someone please spell it out for me and and tell me if they are all compatible with Audition. Thanks.

    Thanks for posting!

    Adobe Audition can use VST and Audio Unit type plugins. The plugins included with the M-Track come in both of those formats so you may use whichever you wish it won't affect how the plugin functions. This Adobe article will help you install plugins into Audition:

    You won't need to use both the 32 and 64-bit versions of the plugins. Adobe Audition will be your host software in which the plugins will be opened. If you are running a 32-bit host software, use the 32-bit version of the plugin. If you are using a 64-bit host software, use the 64-bit version of the plugin.

    The factory content for Xpand!2 is basically sample content (audio) that the plugin will use to produce sounds. This content must be installed in order for the plugin to function but all you really need to do is make sure it installs correctly and you won't need to think about it again - the plugin will know what to do with that content.

    This knowledge base article will walk you through the process of setting up the M-Track with the included software:
