Prior to 5.4 I had, in my Effects and Instrument browsers, a folder where I placed all the items I never and won't use (e.g., VST2 versions, Neutron 2 plugs since I have version 3, "Live" versions of Waves plugs such as ADT). I blocklisted the folders when 5.4 came out, and while mixing a song yesterday noticed that the Sidechain button in Waves' Vocal Rider (stereo) was just gone. I then noticed it was absent from all my Waves plugins, plus some others.
At first I wondered if just mis-remembered that sidechaining was an option for Vocal Rider, but a quick youtube search confirmed it was. So after some real head-scratching, I was left with whether the blocklist caused a problem, and removed all the plugins -- simply too many to check one-by-one. And while Sidechaining returned to the stereo Vocal Rider (and various other plugs), it did not for the mono version. And I don't know if all Waves plugins had side-chaining or not, but I'll keep plowing through to see what I can learn.
I'll send in a support ticket but wanted to see if anyone else has come across the phenomenon.
I've never had problems with blacklisting plugins, except for Waves.
That might be because all Waves plugins are contained in a "shell", so they are all cousins somehow. In my case if I blacklisted one plugin they all just disappeared from my plugins list. So yeah, I just hide them.
