Download and Install License.key

If you installed the FULL version, download your personal license.key from https://www.mysteryislands-music.com/my-account/orders/ (and click the order number which contains the plug-in purchase).

Download the license.key from the green box and make sure it is called license.key in your HDD. If the license.key has additional .txt extension in it, remove it so that is says license.key.

Copy license.key before starting your DAW to

/Users/yourUserName/Documents/Mystery Islands Music/Waldorf PulseX Editor/ 

Now that installer has completed its tasks, you can open up your favorite DAW and it will scan the plug-in.

license.key should be placed in /Users/(username)/Documents/Mystery Islands Music/Waldorf PulseX Editor/ folder

Download and Install additional Banks

If you wish to add custom banks for your synthesizer, you can copy them in to Patches folder. User presets are hardcoded to be read and saved to:

/Users/yourUserName/Documents/Mystery Islands Music/Waldorf PulseX Editor/Patches/

So, if you have any Pulse, Pulse+ or Pulse 2 sound banks, you should copy them there. PulseX will scan the folder up on initialization and convert them to PulseX format.

You can also find the plug-in log file from this location, if we may require it in any case of support.
