Why does Super8 show up as NI GMBH?

All NI plugins neatly show up in the Native Instruments category. But Super8 shows itself in another folder named Native Instruments GmbH (see attached screenshot). It seems like a simple typo-bug to fix in the installer. I just don't know how to report bugs so I thought I post it here.

    Wondered about that too. It's not so great that the NI plugins are spread over various folders that way.

    I have Absynth 5, Battery 4, FM8, Reaktor 6, and Super 8 a under the GmbH folder, and Komplete Kontrol, Kontakt, Maschine 2, Massive, and Massive X appear under the regular NI folder. I was wondering why myself.

    Super 8 was the first VST 3 NI instrument. But KK has not fully supported VST 3 until now and so it was contained in that folder and connected to KK with a workaround. KK 2.6.7 added the support for VST 3 which is prrsumably why Super 8 is now incorporated into KK like everything else.

    @MyStudioOne is right.

    There was a name shortening issue for the VST3 plugin in KK. Unfortunately it's a cosmetic issue so there's no plan to address this right now but I understand it can create confusions. 🤨
