Gets installed and listed as "Kind" as an Application in the VST3 folder instead of VST 3 Plugin. Cubase 11 "sees" it in its Plug-In Manager but it won't load.

Your current installer indeed works, placing "Signalsmith-Audio-cloud-chorus-stfx2.vst3" into the correct pathway: BootHD/Library/Audio/Plug-Ins/VST3. It is seen by Cubase 11.0.30, launches and works. And for a simple chorus plug, it's good sounding , doesn't eat enough CPU to be even noticed on the CPU meter, and its controls are straightforward. Nice entry.

However, I have to tell you that I normally inspect all unknown .pkg files with Pacifist before I click "Install" and I have to say what I see doesn't appear "normal" in comparison with nearly all .pkg installers. I had to take a leap of faith clicking on yours. Normally, you'd see something like this:

Yours looks like this:

It works, but it doesn't look like what one would normally expect.
Installer weirdness aside, the unit works and sounds quite nice. Thanks for updating the installer.
