  1. hi and how are you
    my Fl studio and guitar rig work perfectly but Fl studio not finding guitar rig.
    I read your article about rig5, and i dropped the dll file in \Plugins\VST.
    but still cant see it in the list?

    1. Hi.. have you scanned the list? there is a button in the bottom for you to scan new plugin. If guitar rig is properly installed, it should be detected. If after scanning and still there is no guitar rig 5 in the list. Then it may be a registry problem. Try to uninstall guitar rig and delete the registry file using registry cleaner. Install it again. and try the steps again. Hopefully it works for you as it works for many others.
