Hey to all!
My Mulab 8.86 did not recognize the new Captain Plugins Epic but I found out that the plugins nevertheless work well if you manually make an entry in "Mulab x xx\User\Settings\VstPlugins.xml". Enter your path for each Captains plugin than copy the whole text into your VstPlugins.xml:

It should be a good idea to check if other "unrecognized" plugins will work too in this way.

It's worth pointing out that all of my Captain Plugins are recognised straight away by MuLab 9.0.35.
Bitwig 4.2.3 + Driven by Moss 16.5 / MuLab 9.0.35
Novation Impulse 49 Keyboard + Focusrite Scarlett 2i2 Interface

I'm sorry but Captain Plugin Epic is not recognized by Mulab 8.86 or Mulab 9.0.35. I tried to modify the xml file as suggested unfortunately without success. Only one plugin is recognized and it is Beat also the SONiVOX Film Score Companion plugin does not work only the DRUM plugin is loaded.

Which OS? I'm on macOS 12.3.1 and it works for me...

With fully updated windows 10 it does not work. Unfortunately!

I would be surprised if editing the VstPlugins.xml would make any difference wrt this issue with Captain plugins.

I've contacted MixedInKey about this issue and am waiting for their answer.
