How can I get my 3rd-party plug-ins to show up in Studio One?

Studio One 4 now has a new plug-in scanner that allows you to skip or disable plug-ins.  For more information on managing this plug-in scanner, please take a look at the following article from our knowledge base.

Below you will find information on troubleshooting third-party plug-ins that are not showing up in Studio One 4.  

Windows:

 

  1. Please open Studio One and go to Studio One>Options>Locations>VST Plugins and verify that you have the correct directory added to the list of folders that the program scans at startup. You want to add the directory that you have your plug-ins installed to. If you do not see the "VST Plug-ins" tab under the Locations tab, then you want to make sure that you have activated Studio One Professional or you have installed the VST, AU, and ReWire support add-on if you are running the "Artist" version of Studio One. Press the "Reset Blacklist" button while you are in this window.

  2. Right-click Studio One and choose "Run as administrator" when opening the program to determine if there is a possible permissions problem.

  3. Studio One 4 will only load 64-bit plug-ins, as it is a 64-bit app. If you loaded your VSTs from the c:\Program Files (x86) folder into Studio One under the "Locations" tab, this is more than likely your 32-bit plug-ins. Your 64-bit plug-ins should be installed under the c:\Program Files directory, without the (x86) next to it.  

  4. Please click the icon of the wrench in the browser window, at the top, right-hand corner of the window, to open the plug-in manager. Make sure that there is a white dot next to the plug-in, if it shows up in the list.

  5. If you are still having a problem, try contacting the manufacturer of the plug-in for information about updates, compatibility issues with Studio One, or possible workarounds.

 

Mac:
