What if the plug-in doesn't show up in my DAW?

If you have installed and authorized your plug-in and it still doesn't show up in your DAW, try the following:

Mac OS X: 

Simply go to your DAW’s preferences and rescan your plug-in.

Windows: 

It is possible that you need to add the following paths to your DAW’s list of VST folders. Open your DAW’s VST Preferences and add the applicable folder:

Windows 32-bit OS: 

32-bit DAW: C:\Program Files\Common Files\Steinberg\VST2\

Windows 64-bit OS: 

32-bit DAW: C:\Program Files (x86)\Common Files\Steinberg\VST2\
64-bit DAW: C:\Program Files\Common Files\Steinberg\VST2\
 
After doing this, perform a plug-in rescan in your DAW. Note that the following DAWs sometimes require additional steps:

Studio One:

  1. In the VST preferences, and make sure "Scan at Startup" is checked.
  2. Also click "Reset Blacklist" in the VST preferences, and then restart Studio One.

Cubase

  1. Go to Devices->Plug-in Manager and click Plug-in Manager->Rescan all. Occasionally Cubase needs to be forced to rescan the plug-in folder.
