please help with installing plug-ins

tried to use the search function for this, but wasn't really finding what I was looking for.

I'm primarily a guitar player, but I do some recording for my band. I have an Onyx 1640 and a PC along with Cubase SL3.

Up to this point, I've only messed around with the plugins that were included with Cubase, and I'd definitely like to try out some new ones. I know that there are lots of free plugs floating around online, but the 2 times in the past that I've tried to download/install some to try out, I haven't got things working.

I'm hoping that somebody can walk me through the process...

thanks to anybody that can help

when you download plug in for cubase, make sure you download vst plugs or direct-x
some plugs will have an installer but most will have a .dll icon with a little cog on it when you open them up.

so go to my computer/local disk c/program files/cubase/vst plugins and drag the .dll icon in that plug in folder,you'll see other ones like it in there.
that will work. when you open up your plug in folder in cubase, it will be there.

some spots for free vst:
Variety Of Sound (home of the wicked plugs by bootsy)
GERSIC.COM free audio plugin database
Stillwell Audio - It's About The Sound (technically usable unlimited demos)
Jeroen Breebaart | Free VST plugins (ferox is a must get)
www.tinbrooketales.com (some very nice stuff)
Audio freeware for mac and pc
Tubedriver - Homepage (this is the tubedriver by nick crow)
Free VST plugins for your music production, download synth and effect plug-ins like DtBlkFx, DSK Music, Sweetboy VST, Terry West, Thaw, Little Critters, Cymbiant, O'Malley Sound and more at rekkerd.org

also, some plug-ins will automatically find your vst folder in cubase but sometimes it may pick the wrong spot and/or create a new vstplugin folder so watch for stuff like that when installing stuff that doesn't allow for drag and drop from the get go (but can be moved after the fact)
