Maschine third party software plug-ins not showing up after multiple rescan & restarts

so i used to be able to be able to load all of my 3rd party software plug ins in maschine, but now they've all gone. I made sure the file path locations are accurate in the "plug-ins" and "library" directory, even to the point where i try to add the same directory again, and it says that that file path is already there. I have no idea what to do from here, and when i hit "rescan", it says i have 500+ plug-ins scanning, then it gets to like maybe 200 and then stops....then still no 3rd part software is still able to load as shown in the pictures below.

    and now i go back into my maschine VST within logic, and all of the plug-ins i had in my projects in maschine VST have exclamation marks next to them making them all unusuable

    and now it scans all of my plug-ins, but still won't show up in my sound slot. i've removed the file paths and added them again, then rescanned, and still nothing. i went into my system preferences, then into privacy and security, then allowed maschine 2 full access and still nothing. there is currently nothing in my maschine preferences>manager window, but my file paths are listed and showing.

    Are you sure your plugins are in: / Users / StarSmash / Library / Audio / Plug-Ins / VST

    Instead of the default: / Library / Audio / Plug-Ins / VST

    ?

    Where they go depends if you install things for ALL users of your computer or just for yourself, only applies if you have multiple users of course, to make things simpler usually people have both paths there.


    Not sure why your user folder content is showing up in your plug paths, remove it, it should look like this:

    Take note of the name of plug it stops in and temporarily remove it from the plug folder and try again.

    thank you for trying to help.


    yes, i'm sure that's where my plug-ins are:


    and maschine takes 20 minutes to scan my whole library every time i open it, only for none of the plug-ins to show up.

    and now it shows everything in my user library, but not in maschine. i can drag and drop from the folders on my HD, but can't browse absolutely anything in maschine. the samples loaded are from an already existing template.

    Dang, there's a ton of messed-up stuff on your system... How did this happen? Did you get a new computer? Update something? Change a drive's name or anything similar? Reinstalling won't do much afaik, it does not replace what matters unless you're talking about a clean install of your OS.

    I'd give it a go at "Reinitializing the Databases" by deleting your db3 files and letting them regenerate, explained here:

    Plugins missing and the lib are different issues tho. From my experience, some plugins cause the Scan at the startup to always trigger, iZtope stuff for example is always scanned.

    thanks for offering that solution. I did get a new M1 computer and erased my current HD to make it bottable on the new M1, but it never worked. I then returned the M1 and am back on my old system, then this happened. i've erased this HD many times, but had another HD for backup during the process and transferred that back onto this current one.


    the libraries show up in maschine now (except neon drive for some reason), but now it's just the plug-ins not showing up and the constant scanning absolutely everything on booting up maschine.
