I reported recently that iZotope's sweet 'n' loverly Trash2 distortion engine wouldn't load in 1.0.6 or earlier, and I do love my distortions. Well, they updated something and now the VST loads and is recognized and all is well and nicely distorted.

So if Trash2 was on a fix-list, it can be removed!

I recently updated my iZotope plugins and organised them into a dedicated folder in my VSTPlugins folder on Windows 10.

Note the plugin folder is aliased using the link-shell-extension ( https://schinagl.priv.at/nt/hardlinkshellext/linkshellextension.html)

When I tried to add the iZotope dlls to Unify I found that Breaktweaker and Iris2 were added just fine but the others were not. The non-loading plugins are:

Ozone, Neutron & Nectar Elements, OzoneImager, RX8, Trash2 and Vinyl.

I tried the VST3 versions but got the same result.

Is there anything else I should try?

 
PS I created a separate unaliased  VSTPlugins2 folder and copied the iZotope plugins there but they still could not be added to Unify.

There should be no need to use any folder aliases. Lots of VST vendors install their plug-ins to a sub-folder of the main VST folder. Unify itself doesn't care where VSTs are located, but if you move them, you must delete the old/invalid entries in the Known Plug-Ins list and re-create them by drag/dropping the VSTs from the new location.

1. Instead of alias I should have said symlink IE symlink from d:\symlinksources\vstplugins to c:\program files\vstplugins

2. When the iZotope effects are dragged in to Unify they do not appear on the list of known plugins. 

This post is just to note that I found some possibly flaky iZotope plugins.

I'm surprised that certain plug-ins simply don't appear in the Known Plug-Ins list after dragging them in. This usually happens when Unify is unable to open them because of some error condition.

I will see if I can update my own iZotope plug-ins and reproduce the issue here.

I'm not sure if this is relevant for your problem?

Two things to check:

1. Does the missing plugins appear under audio effects?

2. Izotope "drops" a lot of dll's that aren't the actual plugins. I've asked Izotope what they are, but no ansver. The correct dll for Trash is "iZotope Trash 2.dll"/"iZotope Trash 2.vst3" not "iZTrash2.dll".

Win 10/Cubase Pro 11/Wavelab 8/Spectrasonics all/NI 13/Izotope MPS2Serum/Cthulhu/MusicLab guitar vsts/etc

@thsve Wicked! That is the answer. When I searched for the names as you described I found them and successfully added them to Unify. They all worked apart from Vinyl which crashed Unify. No biggie for me. Thanks tons!
