Gig Performer didn’t find my plugin

Plugins have to be validated before they are used by plugin hosts. This is normally done automatically by Gig Performer when it starts up and detects a new plugin.

Sometimes a particular plugin may take longer than expected, perhaps because it’s trying to connect to a remote server for authorization and couldn’t. To avoid one plugin with a potential problem preventing all others from being validated, Gig Performer’s plugin scanner will eventually time out and that plugin will be marked as unavailable.

Alternatively, there may have been a problem with a previous validation attempt that failed and again the plugin will have been marked as unavailable.

If your plugin does not seem to be available to Gig Performer, first confirm that it is a 64-bit plugin or that it is wrapped by a 32 to 64-bit converter such as jBridge or 32 Lives. Then perform the following steps

  1. Run Gig Performer’s plugin manager manually (select “plugin manager” from the Window menu)
  2. Scroll down and look for items that are in red. These are plugins that Gig Performer found but couldn’t validate. The plugin with which you were having trouble is most likely on that list.
  3. Select those plugins and delete them manually by pressing the DELETE key
  4. Click the button at the bottom of the plugin manager, called “Scan for new or updated plugins”
  5. The plugin manager should find those plugins and will attempt to validate them again
  6. When it’s done, close the plugin manager window. Your plugins should now be available. In some cases you may have to restart Gig Performer.
