yes - although obviously it may not be the same across different platforms.
Despite what Martin says and repeat often ! it’s not consistent. Search in these forums and you will see loads and loads of posts about blacklisted plugins - and plugins that are mis-identified as 32bit when they are 64bit.
I run nuendo and cubase on the same system and cubase often randomly blacklists stuff that isn’t blacklisted in cubase. These are generally plugins that run just fine after renabling.
Something changed in SB’s code and it’s now very fussy about something - or they have introduced yet another bug (most likely IMO) that affects the scan - it would be good if Martin actually said what has changed instead of just saying “contact the plugin vendor”. Maybe then the could revert the change.
The irony of the whole situation is that i still occasionally have plugins that crash and these ARE NOT blacklisted - so whatever they are checking for isn’t actually helping much. Interestingly I have also had SBs own plugins be blacklisted.
Obviously this doesn’t fit Martin’s view of the situation so it can’t be true - so let’s repeat the same line “contact the plugin vendor”
