asked Feb 3, 2017 in Studio One 3 by kevinfunk1 (200 points)
I have 64 bit Ezdrummer 2 and 64 bit studio one 3 pro.  I can not get ezdrummer into my Instruments tab.  I have tried to copy and paste the exact plugin path from ezdrummer.  I have gone to locations and vst tab and tried to open ezdrummer.  It says that the folder is "invalid." I have tried to drag and drop it into the correct folder but it just disappears.

I am using windows 10 on a dell t3500 workstation.  It worked before when I was running windows 7 pro.  my comp crashed.  so I upgraded to windows 10, re downloaded studio one and ezdrummer and now it won't work together anymore.  Ezdrummer runs fine in stand alone.  please help.  Thanks.

If you are missing plug-ins in Studio One, please take a look at the following information.

1.  Please open Studio One and go to Studio One>Options>Locations>VST Plugins and verify that you have the correct directory added to the list of folders that the program scans at startup.  You want to add the directory that you have your plug-ins installed to.  If you do not see the "VST Plug-ins" tab under the Locations tab, then you want to make sure that you have activated Studio One Professional or Producer or you have installed the VST, AU, and ReWire support add-on if you are running the "Artist" version of Studio One.  Press the "Reset Blacklist" button while you are in this window.

2.  Right-click Studio One and choose "Run as administrator" when opening the program to determine if there is a possible permissions problem.

3.  Studio One will only load 64-bit plug-ins into the 64-bit version of Studio One.  The 32-bit version of Studio One will only load 32-bit plug-ins.  If you loaded your VSTs from the c:\Program Files (x86) folder into Studio One under the "Locations" tab, this is more than likely your 32-bit plug-ins. If you need to install a different bit-version of Studio One, you can do so by downloading the desired version from your account under My Products>Software>Studio One.

4.  Please click the icon of the wrench in the browser window, at the top, right-hand corner of the window, to open the plug-in manager.  Make sure that there is a white dot next to the plug-in, if it shows up in the list.  

5.  If you are still having a problem, try contacting the manufacturer of the plug-in for information about updates, compatibility issues with Studio One, or possible workarounds.

Thanks for all of your patience and please submit a support ticket it you require further assistance in this issue.
