SampleTank4 VST3 rejected

Question

This is the new, fixed, VST3 for SampleTank4. Where/how can I tell Cakewalk that this is in fact a new/different/fixed VST3?

Usually the scanner detects when a dll is updated unless the scanner is set to manual scan. If the scanner is set to manual scan, run the scanner from VST Preferences.

If this plug-in is in the Exclusion List it may be restored without running a VST reset. To check the Exclusion list:

  • open the Plug-in Manager
  • click on "VST3 Instruments (VST3)" in Plug-in Categories
  • click on the "Show Excluded" radio button
  • see if the plug-in is in the Registered Plug-ins list

If the plug-in is in the Exclusion List, to restore the plug-in to to  VST preferences

  • set the scan options drop down to Manual Scan
  • enable "Rescan Failed Plug-ins"
  • click Scan
  • disable "Rescan Failed Plug-ins"
  • restore the scan drop down

Thanks guys. What I did was run install again, and added the VST plugin, as well as the VST3 plugin. This put a dll file in the VST folder. This works, and is in fact a VST3 plugin. (Can I rename that to VST3, and put in in the right place?)

When scanning, the log says:

VSTSCAN: ---- 49: c:\program files\common files\vst3\SampleTank 4.vst3 ----
VSTSCAN: [ShortPath] c:\PROGRA~1\COMMON~1\vst3\SAMPLE~1.VST
VSTSCAN: [RegKey] Software\Cakewalk Music Software\Cakewalk\Cakewalk VST X64\Inventory\c:/program files/common files/vst3/SampleTank 4.vst3
VSTSCAN: Known bad VST plugin skipped

VSTSCAN: ---- 111: e:\data\midi\vstplugins\Samplers\SampleTank 4.dll ----
VSTSCAN: [ShortPath] e:\data\midi\VSTPLU~1\Samplers\SAMPLE~1.DLL
VSTSCAN: [RegKey] Software\Cakewalk Music Software\Cakewalk\Cakewalk VST X64\Inventory\e:/data/midi/vstplugins/Samplers/SampleTank 4.dll

The comment "Known bad VST plugin skipped" looks like a blacklist entry somewhere.

The Exclusion List in the Plug-in Manager is the blacklist.

Not sure about renaming plug-ins with dll extensions to vst3.

Unless I know for certain the plug-in is VST3 I would leave the file names as the manufacturer supplies them. I only know of one case where a manufacturer (not IKM) accidentally used dll for the extension of their VST3 plug-in but I suppose there could be more. I cannot speak directly about SampleTank. Don't have the plug-in.

AFAIK, that is the only list.

Is the log entry above from a VST Reset?

If not then a Reset may be in order.

If it is then this is a support@cakewalk.com issue.

You can if the manufacturer accidentally shipped their VST3 plug-in with a dll extention.  I have had to do it one time.

However, I have on several occassions temporarily renamed vst3 files to dll in order to get check their version info.

OK. A Reset Rescan solved the problem. VST3 working in default folder again. The dll plugin is the (working) VST2 version.

Thanks, everyone. And Reset didn't even harm my personal plugin menu layouts. And all the plugins in my personal exclusion list stayed there.

I am surprised a scan with "Rescan Failed Plug-ins" did not pick it up. Regardless, aside from the extra time a Reset takes, it is a fairly harmless action. IIRC, it does lose custom property settings like "Do Not Intercept NRPNs" but does not touch layouts or the category database.
