Very exhaustive problems with VST3 folder not being recognized

So I've been dealing with this for a while and getting extremely exhausting. I can't get any VST3 plugins to be available when using the Maschine standalone. When I scroll through instruments and click on a preset for any NI Synth (Massive, Reaktor, etc.) it will say not available. I just purchased a Maschine expansion pack (Rare Vibrations) and the included Synth presets aren't usable. I've tried re-installing everything in Native Access, ensured the folders are in the right place and still nothing. The main issue I'm facing is not seeing the VST3 format of the plugins,

    @sheistbugz Can you share a screenshot of your Maschine preferences -> Plug-Ins -> Locations?

    Are the VST3 files in their right folder? Mac HD > Library > Audio > Plug-Ins > VST3

    Does Maschine have Full Disk Access? How to Enable Full Disk Access on macOS

    CAn you load VST3 plug-ins in other applications? If you get an error message in Maschine can you take a screenshot and share it?

    Maschine Plus doesn't support VST3s in standalone mode.

    Have you installed the plugins from Native Access? Are you on Apple Silicon?

    Yes, installed from Native Access, I'm on a MB16 i9. Everything was fine until just a few weeks ago out of nowhere I started having trouble.

    Thank you, I finally got it. I had it routed User-Library-Audio-PlugIns. Went to Plug-In locations on Maschine and added the correct routing of MacHD-Library-Audio-PlugIns.

    Appreciate the help.
