Some plug-ins don't show up in Ableton

Hello !!

I just bought a new computer and I am installing all the kontakt libraries into it.

a few plugins are are not showing up in ableton even tho they are on the same folder as the ones showing up.

the plug in "Form" for example is not showed in ableton even tho it shares the same folder "NI content" which I created to place these plug ins.

also "battery 4" shares the same path of other 64 bit plug ins:

Application location = C:/Program Files/Native Instruments/Battery 4

Vst 64 location = C:/Program Files/Native Instruments/VSTPlugins 64 bit

now for example by checking Native access it is the same path as the RC 48 reverb, but this last plug in shows regularly in the ableton list

Thanks in advance !!

    Form is a Reaktor instrument, not a Kontakt library. Battery 4 is its own plugin, not a Kontkat library.

    thanks for your reply, I understand they are plug ins apart from kontakt but I don't get why they are not showed in the Ableton Plug in Folder.

    maybe I'm selecting the wrong folder for ableton to scan?? these plug ins that give me the issue were saved on the desktop and i collected them into a folder.

    Any suggestions?

    Thanks again

    the “plugins” from your desktop would have been shortcuts to the standalone executable version, not the VST version. Check the paths set in Native Access preferences for the plug-in location

    To open Form, you need to open Reaktor 6 first. Maybe this little article will help you to see what belongs to where in Ni's environment: Which Applications do the KOMPLETE Content Products Belong To?

    Now, for Battery 4 you might try to re-install it. Here is a video on VSTs and Ableton, that also might be helpful:

    Thanks for yor suggestions guys, I tried what you suggested but still nothing.

    I don't get why because if I check the VSTPluings 64bit folder there are a lot of plug ins that are recognised by ableton.

    Also Reaktor and Battery 4 which I'm particularly interested into are there but still ( even after reinstalling them) they don't show up.

    Check VST plugin paths in Native Access preferences. It's likely not the same folder where all your other VSTs are.

    thanks again for your reply, here is a screenshot of the folder VST Plugins 64bit , most of the plugins displayed are working normally, also if i check the installation path on NI access it is the same as the others.

    I already tried installing again but still the same plg ins won't show up.

    Hey @Paolo134 Try this: go in your Ableton's preferences, go to Plug-Ins, press the rescan button while holding the alt key.
