No plugins working in Cubase 64-bit Virtual Instrument Plugins

No plugins working in Cubase 64-bit

Hello there,

This is probably a basic thing for some of you, so I´m hoping for some useful input.

I have installed Cubase 5 64-bit version on my Windows 7 64-bit system, but the only plugs working are the ones that come with Cubase.

No UAD-1, no Waves, no Halion Symphonic Orchestra, no Stylus, no Akoustik Piano etc ...

What the heck am I doing wrong?

I installed the 32-bit version of Cubase initially, but changed my mind because I want to check out the Nebula stuff, which only works in the 64-bit version of Cubase (at least that´s what I´ve been told). Things were working fine until I installed the 64-bit version of Cubase, when I suddenly lost all mentioned plug ins in both the 32 and 64 bit version.

Hoping for useful input. Thanks in advance.

I don't think that UAD-1 works in 64 bit.

With the others, you'll need to bridge the 32bit plugs to work as 64bit with jbridge or something like it.

BTW, Nebula only works in Cubase 5/64bit? Really?

There are 32 bit & 64 bit versions of Nebula.
If you want to fully utilize neb, 64 bit Nebula is the way to go wtih 64bit DAW...

Go to devices/plugin information and add a "VST2" folder. Select the folder containing your 3rd party plugins (probably program files/Steinberg/VSTPlugins). Rescan and you're ready to go.

Thanks for your input!

It was very helpful. I have solved it now.

The VST2-folder thing was what solved it.

Thanks again!
