Hi guys, 

I'm having issues with getting access to VST plugins on Studio One 3. I've been reading around that to find them you just need to specify the locations on the Options tab... but as you can see on this image, I don't have that tab... I'm really going nuts trying to find this, but it's impossible. Any thoughts about why? Maybe I don't have the complete Studio One 3 version? I tried to upload it, but it says I have the newest version... So I't stuck right now :/

The VST Plugins locations should be next to the Instruments Library, but it isn't... please help and thanks in advance :D

Third Party VST integration is not supported with Studio One Artist. In order to be able to utilize additional plugins, you would need to either upgrade to Studio One 3 Professional or upgrade your Artist version by purchasing the VST/ReWire Add-On; which allows for the use of additional non-bundled Third Party VSTs as well as adding ReWire Support in Artist
