Hi there,

SO4 Professional, Windows 10, 64bit, 24 GB RAM, Steinberg MK2 Interface.
(Everything is uptodate)

I bought Autotune Pro last week and try to install it. Autotune is not shown in SO4. Only Autokey is there.

I check the path: .......comon files/VST3  and it´s there. auto-tune.vst3. Try Blacklist, delete the path and on and on.

I also intall Antares AVOX and every plugin is shown on SO4. And their in the same folder like Auto-tune.vst3

After many experimene with Intallation/deinstallion/update Ilok, SO4 and all Antares Programms as well as contact the Antares Support.....I decided to install SO3 and suddenly its there.

So what ist wrong with autotune.vst3 and SO4? I took the same settings like in SO3 but Autotune ist not in Effects.

Can anybody help me?

Greetings from germany.

Not Antares, but I am having the same issue with a McDsp plugs' VST3 version. Its vst2 shows up fine and loads ok.

I think its a bug in S4

Hi there,

I got a solution for my problem.

I went to the folder:


There is the folder "Studio One 4"

In this folder is "x64"

In my case I took the content of "x64" and moved it in a Folder on the "desktop" (for example). So the "x64" ist empty.

Than I started SO4 again and suddenly Autotune Pro was there.

My VST-paths and soundset-paths in "options" was gone, but it was worth it.

Maybe you can copy step by step the content of your "Desktop"-Files back to "x64" to see wich file ist doing what.

In may case I only got small correction to do. So I didn´t do the copy stuff.



If it doesn´t work with this. You can also move all Folders/Files from the "Studio One 4"-Folder to the desktop. So "Studio One 4" is empty.

SO4 starts totally new and fill the folder again. All ist delete. The paths, your midi, audio-Settings. SO4 comes totally clean.

I call it the hardcore-reset.

Like can copy step by step all folders back. In my case I discover the content of "x64" as the main  problem.

Hopefully it helps.

And remember:

If something get´s destroyed, I am not to blame

I had the same problem! That must be a bug from Studio One.

I followed tommoell's suggestion and took a closer look at the Plugin-de.settings file. It contains a <Sections path=".../Auto-Tune.vst3"> which is not completed. The section of Auto-Key is much more detailed. I deleted the Auto-Tune section, saved the file and restarted Studio One. Now Auto-Tune is loaded correctly and ist running!! juhui

Try this. If you right click on Studio 4.exe, change the compatibility settings to run for "Windows 8". It may load and work for you. This fixed AutoTune 8 for me.
