Summary0007875: Elektron Overbridge instruments not appearing in MIDI instrument list
DescriptionI am on the latest public beta of Elektron Overbridge (2.0.30.3) and neither my Digitone nor Digitakt are showing up in my MIDI instrument list. I believe I have installed it correctly as both show up in FL Studio and Reaper. Ardour is the only DAW that cannot detect them. It is possible that it is a problem with Overbridge but I figured I would file a bug as well.

I can still connect to them as though they were external gear, but they don't appear as VSTs.
Steps To ReproduceInstall ardour 5.12
Install Overbridge 2.0.30.3 (make sure instrument support is installed, for me I installed Digitone and Digitakt support).
Set preferences to scan overbridge install directory for VST plugins, run scan
In an ardour session, go to the editor. Add new MIDI track, in the "Instrument" dropdown, "Digitone" and "Digitakt" do not appear.
Additional InformationYou do not need digitone or digitakt hardware to be plugged in your system for the instruments to be listed, so no additional hardware should be necessary.

I do not know how to determine what went wrong with loading the dlls, though I do see that Ardour tried loading them.

Do the plugins not appear at all, or just not in the instrument list?
Can you load them later using the plugin-manager?

Menu > Window > Log may have some more information about the plugin. Maybe they're blacklisted when scanned for some reason?

..._x86.dll

Could it be that it's a 32bit VST, but you are using 64bit Ardour? If so that is expected: 64bit Ardour only support 64bit VSTs (and 32bit Ardour only 32bit VSTs).

Preferences > Plugins > VST > enable "Verbose Plugin Scan" , then clear cache & blacklist, re-scan can show this.

It appears to be checking both the 32-bit and 64-bit versions of the dlls
