The same Problem here…Cubase 12 does NOT SCAN C:\Program Files\Common Files\VST3 !
The only VST3 Folder scanned is C:\Program Files\Steinberg\Cubase 12\VST3
So I created a new folder in
C:\Program Files\Steinberg\Cubase 12\VST3
and made a symlink to
C:\Program Files\Common Files\VST3
Now it works. For all: Search for a program called JunctionMaster Pro by Bitsum (can’t post links here), with it you can make symlinks.
Thank you !
I have no VST2 DLL’s in the Folder C:\Program Files\Common Files\VST3, but Cubase 12 (also the Update to 12.0.10) keeps on skipping this Folder. I did not want to move all VST3’s to C:\Program Files\Steinberg\Cubase 12\VST3, so I made the symlink.
Where are VST3 plug-ins installed?
In contrast to VST2 plug-ins, all VST3 plug-ins share the same installation folder. So it’s easy for both host sequencers and users to find the VST3 plug-ins. These are the installation paths defined in the VST3 specifications:
Windows 64 Bit: C:\Program Files\Common Files\VST3
Windows 32 Bit: C:\Program Files (x86)\Common Files\VST3
Mac OS X: Library/Audio/Plug-ins/VST3
I Found the solution! I copied all Vst3 plugins from: prog files / common files/ vst3, to prog files/ Steinberg/ Cubase 12 / vst3. Then i deleted the shortcut folder in this folder that leads to : prog files / common files/ vst3 . Everything works perfect now.
Oh my I am getting this problem now. On cubase pro 12.0.30
mac studio Monterey 12.4
ALL my VST3’s worked earlier today, but I tried to get one plugin that did not work…to work. So I started up in rosetta and it still didn’t work. So I went back to native cubase pro 12 start up and now none of my 3rd party vst3 plugins work
