I am wanting to use as sounds in Dorico Pro 3.1 these Instruments from Spectrasonics:
They all have a VST3 plug in installed on the system.
They Do not show up in the VST instruments list in Play Mode of Dorico
I also followed the instructions, and tried putting them on the Whitelist for VST 2 instruments as a .txt file.
None of this has worked.
Is there a key command to tell Dorico to rescan the system for more VST 3 instruments? Or to clear the preferences and rescan ?
I have others that are not showing up also.
What have I overlooked here?
Any suggestions would be appreciated.
VST3 plug-ins must reside at locations predefined in the VST3 specification, so Dorico shall pick up automatically all available VST3 plug-ins from those locations.
I don’t know the Spectrasonic plug-ins, but I doubt that they are VST3.
If they are VST2, they need to get properly whitelisted.
Please do Help > Create Diagnostics Report on the Dorico menu. That creates silently a zip file on your desktop, please post it here.
From that I can see what plug-ins got detected on your system and how your whitelist looks like.

The Spectrasonics Instruments are VST 2 plug ins, I put them into a .txt file ( system is Apple Mac)
and I put the names into Dorico on the white list ( I think)

Thanks for the data. Everything is fine, except that on the whitelist you need to take away the ending ‘.vst’ from the names. Then restart Dorico and the plug-ins shall appear.
