Some Plugins are wrong categorized or/and wrong tagged.

PIZ MIDI Plugins are not Instruments and wrong tagged as Synth. It must be Note Effects. Tone 2 FireBird are Instrument, but also tagged as Effect. a.s.o.

There very much wrong, want to fix that. That i have only Midi Effect or only Instrument. Or how i can select easy wich category i want.

Well, for me the following procedure worked: Uninstalling Bitwig (but leave the folders of projects, VST's and so forth). Go to the folder \Users\CurrentUser\AppData\Local\Bitwig Studio (where "CurrentUser" is the user name of your Windows profile) and delete all of it's subfolders except \installed-packages. Then install Bitwig Studio again, register/activate it and after that - open it. My Bitwig Studio works well again since this reinstall. Well, if I'd knew the folder that keeps the wrong tagging information... but I didn't find it... and Bitwig isn't easy to reach... especially around Christmas and New Year...

Thanks 4 reply. Thanks for the greeting.

So, i sure not install bitwig again, because 2.5 is just installed, and your way feels complicated. I want that Bitwig just makes it possible to tag my plugins...

Either they give a good tagging option or should read cateogries from the Plugins in a less mistakin way.

Everytime i search my Reverbs, 4 or 5 Plugins are hide. And i never installed my Plugins by Catergory, but its good Idea to do that.

Now I have my 150 Pluggs...and Bitwig makes it not good here.

Some Years ago i Rewrite my Plugins like:

Synth_Serum.dll Reverb_Valhalla.dll

But...this not work fine, when other files of the Plugin need the correct name.

I have the same issue. None of my UAD plugins are categorized at all. I'm not sure if that is normal or not, but there are a great deal of plugins that do not show up in the default categories Bitwig provides. I had to create my own custom Collections and manually tagged each plugin. This works 100% of the time for me although it takes a little time to do. Less time, I would assume, than re-coding each plugin though.
