VSTLive not loading Gforce vst2 synth

I just sent it

Any news on the solution?

… we do need the file :
C:\Users\YourUsername\AppData\Roaming\Steinberg\VST Live_64\Vst2Plugins.xml

I have not received a mail or a PM from you. Just drag the file to the forum-editor where you type your answer.


On saturday I sent the e-mail to m.spork@steinberg.de

… I did not receive a mail :frowning: Can you please try it again and zip the file?


Sent as zip file

Any update?

Hi @Fastkeys27,

sorry, it took a while because I wanted to organize the String Machine Plug-In. And I have no trouble with it.

I checked you Vst2Plugins.xml file and I see that the “String machine.dll” is listed two times :

  • C:/Program Files/Steinberg/VSTPlugins/String Machine.dll
  • C:/Program Files/VSTPlugins/String Machine.dll
    Are both files available on your system? I would suggest to
  • remove one file ( C:/Program Files/Steinberg/VSTPlugins/String Machine.dll)
  • delete C:\Users\YourUsername\AppData\Roaming\Steinberg\VST Live_64\Vst2Plugins.xml
  • and start VL again to re-scan all VST2 Plug-Ins

Fine now?

Michael, not created crash log

Virtual String Machine V3x64 last version

For reference, I have installed Gig Performer trial and it closes after opening a Gforce plugin and then the other one, also in Cantabile free, but in Cubase they work!

Did you follow Michas suggestions yet?

yes, completely

  1. delete vst2plugins xml file
  2. open VSTLive Pro and it rescan
  3. New project
  4. Layers–instrument -I choose Gforce impOscar2 and open this one
  5. Close impOscar2
  6. in Instrument change impOscar2 by String Machine and crash, VstLive closes
    I hope this helps

… have you checked the gforce website for the latest versions?


Yes, I checked it at noon

I have submitted ticket to Gforce
