***New for 2021: As of March 15, 2021, PreSonus will be adding MG-1 from Cherry Audio. The grace period for this addition is February 1, 2021. If you registered a qualifying product after February 1, 2021, it is eligible for MG-1. If you do not see it in your account, please press the "Refresh Products" button in your account or log out and log back in. It should be under Products>Add-ons. The information below provides instructions for Voltage Nucleus, but should be the same process for MG-1.
The following information explains the process for registering the Cherry Audio Voltage Nucleus and MG-1 plug-ins with Cherry Audio and activating it for use within Studio One.
***If you are running Studio One 4 Artist, you will need to be running version 4.6.1
or higher for the plug-in to show up. The plug-in will not show up in Studio One 3 Artist.

8. You will then see the screen below asking where you wish to install the program. It is recommend to keep the default location. Remember, this is the program itself and not the VST plug-in.

10. Once you have installed the plug-in, you can drag it into a track from the "Effects" tab in the Studio One Browser, which will launch the plug-in. Sign in with your Cherry credentials the first time that you use it, and you will see a quick download happen at the bottom left-hand corner of the screen. After the download is complete, you are ready to start using your plug-in.
