Please don't rename system Plugin folders (Component, VST, etc) on OS X, the permissions for that folder will change and can create issues when those folder names are set back to their default name.
Creating a new folder and moving plug-ins from the system plug-ins folder to that folder is safer than renaming the folder. Then, these new folders can be added to Studio One to scan.
Note: The latest support ticket that was submitted on this has been answered.
If anyone has an issue with start up scanning on OS X, this is the correct way to set Studio One not to scan.
- Go into Library/Audio/Plugins/VST and remove the problematic plugins so Studio One can start.
- Launch Studio One, go to Studio One>Preferences>Locations>VST Plugins and check the box to scan at startup.
- Close and re-open Studio One to verify that it is not crashing on you.
- In Studio One, go into Studio One>Preferences>Locations>VST Plugins and uncheck the box to scan at startup. This will prevent Studio One from scanning the plugins folder in the future.
- Add your problematic plugins back to the VST directory.
