Hi,

 

I would like to suggest the following easy changes for the structure of CachedVSTs_x64.db:

 

- Add wavesshell also to file path field

- Add a "IsMissing" field, so we wouldn't see problem with waves scanning anymore? Also easily could cleanup database then

- Add a "Vendor" field, which can't be edited by the user and could be searchable later

- Change the identifier mechanism in such way that cross platform compatibility is given in any case: I think reading it from Info.plist is required then, e.g. MCompresor (win) vs. MCompressor.bin (Mac), or MDA plugins update vs. old version

- Set presetpath and bankpath to /Library/Audio/Presets as default value

 

Greetings
