I just purchased and installed the Joey Sturgis Tones Bassforge Hellraiser plug-in. However when I then scanned for the plugin in Cubase 10, the process froze Cubase. The VST scan process just said “scanning” and never moved. Then I realised Cubase had become completely unresponsive.
I had to manually abort Cubase. Then when I tried to re-launch Cubase, the application would not complete initialisation. It was caught up on “Scanning for VST3 plugins” during initialisation and would not progress beyond this.
I then uninstalled the JST plug-in and Cubase once again worked. I repeated the installation of the plugin and same result, Cubase would not initialise, caught up on scanning for VST3 plug-ins. I then uninstalled the plug-in again and Cubase back to normal.
Any ideas what is going on?
