HI everyone. I know this subject has been completely discussed many times on the web but It seems I can't a solution so far.
My problem : I can't find Kontakt in Studio One 4.

Here is what I have tried so far :

  • Adding and double checking the right VST path in Studio One > Options > Locations (*)
  • Reinstalling Studio One both in the default folder and in a custom one (which I prefer for personal reasons)
  • Checking that I use Kontakt and Studio One both in 64 bits versions.
  • (I know this is not recommended) : adding entire drives to the VST path, and after scans, nothing changes in the "Instruments" tab.

(*) Btw I have a question about this. The default location is G\:Studio One\SoundFonts (G or any letter that matchs your drive ofc). Why can't I find this folder when I use Windows file explorer ? The only folders I have here are Macros and Songs (custom).

Sounds like you have Studio One Artist, only Professional can use VSTs, or you can buy the VST add-on package for Artist.

If you have professional (or the VST add-on) you will have another tab under locations called VST Plug-ins. The instrument library/soundfonts tab is something else.
