How to do a capture of a plugin?

I bought a few plugins during the Black Friday sale and would like to capture some of my favorite presets. Can anyone explain how to do it? I got my QC recently and could only find instructions in the manual for capturing physicals amps and pedals.


You will need a second audio interface, afaik. Maybe these videos will help:

For just using the plugins on your PC/Mac via QC, this works like a charm:


the trickiest part is balancing all the levels in the signal chain, but there are a few videos out there that go in to details.

Just remember to disable all gates, compressors, and time-based fx.
