VST sound sets - can't find them in Cubase Elements 8


I followed the instructions on this page: https://www.steinberg.net/forums/viewtopic.php?f=126&t=24038 but I still can’t get my copies of Guitar Spheres and Platinum Guitars VST sound loop sets to show anywhere. They don’t show up in the media bay, nor do they appear in the Instrument list if I want to create an instrument track.

Any help would be very gratefully received by this cubase newbie.


Press F5, do they really not show up in the “VST Sound” folder?


I googled my problem and found this page on the forums: https://www.steinberg.net/forums/viewtopic.php?p=97304. So I looked in the media bay after a period of about 24 hours and lo and behold, the two loop sets were showing in the media bay locations.

Does Cubase need time to scan the hard drive to find media, or something? I haven’t done anything to try and find the loops in the interim… Bizarre.

Thanks for your help :slight_smile:
