      Should the compenent be called Crystals or just Crystal? I have both in there, but with different “Date Modified” dates. Shall I delete both, or just one?

      I'm not sure what Crystal.component (no "s") would be, so I would hesitate to delete it. Our installer will only install Crystals.component, so that one can be safely removed.

      I don’t have any other plugins with that name. What I have noticed is that some less known plugins do in fact have more than one component file, whereby the second version has “AU64” on the end of the name. The only reasons for deleting all these, are because they’re either expired demos (like Crystals, which I don’t need since buying Shimmerverb), and/or they’re freebie plugins that cause my DAW to to a lot longer to open. The difference has been very noticeable since I got rid of them.

      Additional questions – 1) would there be any reason why I would need both AU and VST3 versions of my Eventide plugins (or any plugins for that matter)? (2) Am I going to notice a big difference in performance when I upgrade my Mac Mini from 8GB to 32GB RAM?

      I believe there is a "Crystal" softsynth plugin, perhaps that's it? You could look in your DAW's Plug-in Manager and see what's listed there. But removing our "Crystals.component" should be enough to stop the expired demo message.

      1) What plug-in format you use is up to you and what youi host supports. If your host supports both, then no reason to have both installed.

      2) Yes, I expect there will be a noticeable difference in performance with that RAM upgrade.

      Thanks. Yeah, it is that synth plugin. Its getting binned. I dislike plugins with tiny windows that can’t be rescaled and resized. I will also wipe out the VST’s which are already installed as AU’s.
