Then I started up Dorico, and tried to add from the + button a new VST Instrument when in the Play, but Kontakt doesn’t show up. The log file says this though:
2016-10-20 17:22:32 : Read VST2 White List ---------- :
2016-10-20 17:22:32 : Kontakt 5=>00000000000000000000000000000000
2016-10-20 17:22:32 : VST2WhiteList : Kontakt 5
2016-10-20 17:22:32 : Plugin accepted: Kontakt 5.dll
What am I missing? Doesn’t Dorico find Kontakt5.dll? Usually I have all my VST plugins in D:\Data\VST and D:\Data\VST64, and I had to move Kontakt5.dll from the VST64 to C:\Program Files\VSTPlugins. It would be nice to setup the place to scan VST plugins btw .
Why did you edit the whitelist in first place? Because Kontakt was already in there, we put it in there by default.
Also, you should add “Kontakt 5 16 out” because this will give you a better performance with multiple instruments.
The log clearly shows that Dorico found Kontakt, so it also should turn up in the list of available instruments. Why it doesn’t…big mystery… But in another thread we had another guy with problems on whitelisting other instruments. We’re still investigating on that. Probably this is related.
On the ability to setup the place for scanning VST2 plugs, this is already in planning and will come soon.
Well it didn’t work with Kontakt 5 16 out, then I changed it to Kontakt 5. I tried now Kontakt 5 16out, because the dll is named Kontakt 5 16out.dll, then it gets accepted: 2016-10-20 19:57:23 : Plugin accepted: Kontakt 5 16out.dll
But still Kontakt doesn’t show up in the VST Instruments list.
I’m also not seeing Kontakt in my list of VST instruments. Where is this log file? HALion Sonic SE2 is loading fine. I’m also able to see my Arturia instruments and Montage Connect. I’m running WIndows and my VSTs are stored under c:\vstplugins. I did try copying the Kontakt .dlls to “C:\Program Files\VSTPlugins” and restarting, but no luck.
Edited: It seems that copying the 3 Kontakt VST dlls to the “C:\Program Files\VSTPlugins” directory and not touching the whitelist file did the trick. Not sure why I didn’t see them initially, but I can now see Kontakt is the list of availables VSTs.
Back to my original question… the OP mentioned a log file showing what VSTs got loaded. What is the location of this file on Windows?
