Resetting and Rescanning the blacklist: Studio One

After installing your plug-ins, if you can’t find them in your DAW, it’s likely that they have been blacklisted by your fav DAW.

a few reasons:

  • Connection issues with an iLok USB,
  • Running Babelson installers while your DAW is open,
  • Your license is not activated to a valid location,

DAWs have different methods for resetting and rescanning your plug-ins,

  1. Check and  make sure your plug-ins are installed to the default location, and that your DAW’s plug-in path is set to scan that location.
  2. See if your plug-ins are activated properly.
  3. Install the latest version of the iLok License Manager.
  4. Install the latest version of your DAW
