z3ta not being recognised

Recommended Posts

Hi all

I have z3ta in my VST folder but CbB isn't picking it up - I've checked excluded plugin but it isn't there either. Any ideas? I've certainly used it before - possibly in Sonar Home Studio - can't remember if I have used it in CbB but I think I have

Appreciate any advice

I have several versions of the three files (z3ta+.dll, z3ta+_fx.dll, z3ta+_fx2.dll) on my PC.  For one set, they are all 984 KB.  Another set ranges from 1,318 KB to 1,320 KB.

I had a problem with SFZ+ registering; as in not being found. It didnt register until after I changed the DLL file from "SFZ+.dll" to "SFZ_plus.dll".

I renamed all the DLL files z3taplus and Cakewalk scanned them but did not add any new plug ins and they still don't appear sadly. Thanks for the suggestion though! Fortunately I don't use it in any existing projects but would like to have a listen to it again as I recall it was pretty good

restore the file names

From preferences run a VST Reset with "Generate Scan Log" enabled

If the plug-ins do not show up in the "Sort by" layouts bundled with CbB, review the scan log for details about Z3ta+.

Should I leave Scan in Sandbox ticked?

Always unless support suggests otherwise

Ok I have run the reset - Z3ta+ still doesn't appear in the instrument list under either synths or uncategorised instruments - I see it is mentioned several times in the scan log but not sure what I should be looking for?

Upload the log somewhere and post a link to it.

I will look take a look at the log.

Does z3ta+ show up in effects?

If so, what are the names of the FX entries?

Ah found this in the sandbox log file for the effect - presumably I'll find the same for the instrument

That's right.

I was just about to post the section for z3ta+.dll.

It fails too.

Could try re-installing.

What versions of SONAR do you have? The plug-in was not bundled with SONAR Home Studio.

yeah just found that too once I remembered to use the find command!

Just Home Studio - I think I tried a reinstall of Z3ta but might be worth trying again. Not the end of the world if I can't get it working

Thanks for the help though - much appreciated again!
