For future updates, I've created a go-folder to make preserving and updating my whitelists easy.

1. Create a folder on your desktop (or other easily accessible location) called, e.g., "Dorico VST."

2. Go to the folder where defaults.xml is located, and create a shortcut/alias. Place it in the new folder.

3. Copy (do not alias) your defaults.xml file into the new folder as well.

4. Repeat steps 2-3 for the VST whitelist file.

5. Done! Now, when Dorico updates, you can restore your whitelists by copying the files into the aliases of their proper folders. This also makes it easier to update those files for new VSTs.

In order to save you from all this pain, with the next update (1.1) we will add the ability to have a second whitelist that goes into the user directory and won't get touched by the updater. So the audio engine then reads both whitelists and merges them .

So, what would be the chances that the D-Team could just add all these VST2s to 1.1's default whitelist?

You won't need to use the new user whitelist if you don't want. You can still stick to the old scheme and use your neat shortcut. ;)

I think I'll find a way to cope.

Ok, I've got 1.1. Please provide instructions as to how to access and use this second whitelist.

I have just downloaded Dorico 1.1 trial and first what I found is the missing Kontakt plugin. From what I read on this forum, Kontakt is whitelisted, so should be seen by default, but is not. Cubase sees it, Sibelius sees it, Dorico does not. Why?

Just tested and found sforzando and Aria Player VST are working with Dorico.
I strongly suggest Dorico team to make them enabled as default from now on.

FYI: The ENTER and the WIN keys are corresponding to the RETURN and the CMD key on real macs.
Open Terminal.app and run the following command:

Code: Select all

sudo nano /Applications/Dorico.app/Contents/Applications/VSTAudioEngine.app/Contents/Components/vst2whitelist.txt
Press RETURN key, type your administrator password (or root password if you have root account enabled), press RETURN again to confirm.

After that, for each VST2 plugin you want to enable, you have to type their VST Plugin title into the terminal window one line per plugin.

Note that the content of this text is CASE SENSITIVE. I once mistyped "sforzando" as "Sforzando" and Dorico failed to reveal this plugin.

An example of this whitelist file is shown through the attached PNG file.

After finishing the content of this text file in the terminal window, press CMD+O and then press RETURN to save this edited whitelist text file into your local drive. Now you could force-quit the terminal app, run Dorico and see the changes.

PLAY 5 VST3 is a real shyte among what you should trust.
I used this plugin in PreSonus Studio One 3.5, finished several MIDI arrangement projects, and I hadn't found a crashing case yet.

Hallo

I'm happy. I could use Aria Player, Pianoteq5 Stage, Play, Kontakt in Dorico.
But UVIWorkstation got me in trouble.

As I think it has not been mentioned in this thread, this is how I did it:

1. UVIWorkstationVST
2. macOS Sierra

Interestingly, it should be UVIWorkstationAU, who is how it is listed in the plug-ins file.
So, I suggest to try UVIWorkstationVST if AU don't work, in Mac.

And it works! Now I can use IRCAM prepared piano in Dorico....!!
