I found a potential workaround. If you go into your Cubase Appdata folder (which on Windows is C:\Users\username\Appdata\Roaming\Steinberg) you will find your folder for your current version of Cubase, in my case 10.5. Inside that folder is an xml file called PluginManager. You can right-click and ‘open as’ with Windows notepad. The list of your plugin collection is there to save or print. It does include some numerical gobbledygook at the end but if you focus on the left-hand side and look down through you will be able to see your list. It could be saved as a txt for printing out or whatever. Hope that helps!
There are lots of places in Cubase where it would be nice to print out something but we can’t. My quick and dirty solution is to use the Windows Snipping Tool (or its new replacement whatever it’s called). Everything is of course converted to graphics, so no text searching. But this is almost always adequate for what I need.
I also need to export a list of all the VST / VSTi that I have installed on the computer. I looked inside my PluginManager.xml file and there is no list of plugins. So, in what path and file does Cubase 10.5 store information about installed plugins so I can extract a list?
Thanks MrSoundman, I solved it. I also used the Powershell command to get the list of names, it works!
Could you modify the command to get a list of 3 columns (plugin, brand, vst3/vst2) sorted by name?
