Vst plugins not showing in cubase 12 pro

i am running cubase 12pro in mac os 13.4.1 ventura . I am running out of storage so i have downloaded most of vst plugins in an external sanddisk ssd but it seems that cubase doesn’t accesses the plugins in an external drive. i have tried to select the folder where i have downloaded the vst but it doesn’t workout . can anyone guide me how to do so

Hi and welcome to the forum,

What exactly do you mean by this? Do you really mean VST plug-ins? Could you name them? You have to install them most of the time.

Or do you mean VST Sounds? You have to install them too. The library is then managed by the Steinberg Library Manager.
