It seems that VST3 plugins do not show up anymore in Cubase 9 if the plugin name contains a ‘&’ character
As far as I could find out so far, all plugins are missing that contain a ‘&’ either in the plugin name or in the file name.
We currently have got 3 products where this happens:
HOFA 4U Goniometer & Korrelator
HOFA 4U Meter Fader & MS-Pan
HOFA CD-Burn & DDP
The VST2 versions do not have this problem. Only the VST3 versions.
Some of our customers already complained about this in the Steinberg Forum:
I hope that this can be fixed in Cubase. For compatibility with older projects it would not be an option for us to rename the plugin to remove that character.
