I have turned off "Scan at startup". How do I manually rescan the VST folder to display new VSTs?

You don't. If you want to scan for new plugins, enable the scan at startup and restart. There's already a FR for manual rescan of plugins while S1 remains open. But it wouldn't help to have more people request this

Hi...
I was just looking how to do this today after upgrading to Pro the other night.

A manual rescan/scan ability would be very nice.

Thanks
Chris

In the media browser if you right-click you get a one-item context menu that reads "Refresh", but it does nothing.

Actually a lot of DAWs are rubbish and require the user to close and re-start the DAW. Cubase works like this, at the moment Presonus S1 works this way too. Reaper can do manual re-scans.

I hope this feature gets implemented.
My feature wishlist:
1. Automation clips
2. Ability to (optionally) undo everything, inc. plugin and mixer knob/fader/buttons, add/remove insert, add/remove plugin, etc...
3. Mixer snapshots
4. Wraparound slide audio items like in Reaper

It does refresh the tab you are on at that point. So if you've added files to a folder, clicking refresh on the file tab on that folder will refresh and show the new files.

If I install a new VST or manually add the .dll to the VST folder, refreshing does nothing afaik. Am I missing something here?

It will not pick up VSTs as they have to be valided, but files (presets etc) will be picked up, sorry I wasn't clear.
