Hello,

First: wow! Architect is really impressive. It's hard to believe this is the work of one person. Right now I'm trying to work out how I can use it in my music making, because I want to use it. It's been a joy to get to know a little.

Secondly: It doesn't seem to pick up the Strobe 2 synth from FXpansion on VST scan. It finds cypher 2 alright, but totally misses strobe 2. I'm on Windows 10, latest version of strobe 2. There's a free demo if you want check it out.

Edit: I'm running the standalone version.

Cheers,
Pete

Thanks, and I will. I've recently changed some things regarding the plug-in scan (for the next release), which has fixed a lot of issues when it comes to missing plug-ins. I'm hoping this case falls into that category, but I will check it out for myself.

One thing you can try - and I apologise if you already have - is to remove Strobe 2 from the blacklist and scan again. Sometimes, if a previous plug-in misbehaved, it can have a knock-on affect that stops the next plug-ins from scanning cleanly.

I didn't see the blacklist before. Anyway, i tried that but it just ends up back on the blacklist.

Thanks for letting me know. I'll have a look myself and see if I can work out what's going on here.

Also, you're not the first to overlook the plug-in blacklist: I must make make it more obvious.
