Super excited to try this! However, Ableton is unable to see the plugins at all. I've installed both the beta and regular versions to both the default plugin location (in the Steinberg/VSTplugins folder) and the system folder (common files/VST3) to no avail. Other plugins are loading just fine. Anyone encounter this and have something that worked? Thanks!

Thanks for letting me know that your plugins aren't showing up in Ableton. Let me help you with that.

It's probably caused by incorrect settings in Ableton's preferences. Try this:

  • AFTER installing the Captain Plugins to your computer

  • Go to Ableton > Preferences > File/Folder

  • Check the boxes marked "Use VST Plug-in Custom Folder"

  • Set folder path to C:\Program Files\Steinberg\VSTplugins (this is the default installation location for Captain Plugins on Windows)

  • Then click the button above marked "Rescan Audio Units"

  •  Close Ableton and re-open

(If still no luck, try rebooting your computer)

Please let me know if this helps and let me know if you need anything else.


Amazing! That worked! I did that a few times but was doing it on the vst3 one instead. Tried the VST2 and there they were! thank you so much!!
