After installation plug-in doesn't show up in Ableton Live

Last update January 31, 2023

If plug-in you've just installed doesn't show up on plug-in list in Ableton Live first of all make sure all Software Requirements are met by your setup.

Also if you're Windows user

  • Try out the solution described in this entry at our FAQ. It's possible that some system runtime libraries required by plug-in are missing. This concerns especially relatively fresh Windows installations.

  • Still no success? Open Ableton Live's Preferences and go to Plug-Ins tab. Click Rescan button while holding Alt key (Windows) or Option key (MacOS). This will force Albeton Live to perform much thorough plug-in scan. This concerns both platofrms: Mac OS X and Windows

Also if you're macOS user

  • if you're macOS 10.13 High Sierra user and utilize Audio Unit format of the plug-ins, check out this entry at our FAQ
