I've got the same message for pigments 2 in Bitwig 3.1.2 on a Mac. Help much appreciated. Works fine on my Windows machine tho.

If it’s an option for you, switch to the VST2 versions of the plugins while the bug (fingers crossed) get fixed, you can deselect “prefer VST3 over VST2” in preferences/locations - or - I actually .zipped the offending VST3 plugins in my plugins folder, which forces Bigwig to use the VST2 version!

Hey guys, I think I figured it out. It's a problem with Bitwig's Index.

I deleted the 'Index' folder in User/Library/Application Support/Bitwig/Bitwig Studio (I'm on a Mac but I'm sure there'll be a windows equivalent) - after relaunch bitwig reindexes all your files (which takes a while) - then everything works as expected!

I'm having the same problem loading Pigments 2. I am running Windows 10 OS and Bitwig 3.1.2

Have you tried using VST2 instead of VST3?!?

Experiencing this issue now with some of my Slate Digital plugins, only 2 in particular, I've tried a reinstall of both of those plugins and nothing is fixing this. I have a ton of project files that utilize these plugins so I need to figure out a solution.

Experiencing this, too, now with 3.1.3. How do I switch to VST 2 (until it's figured out)?

Went through troubleshooting with Slate Digital in regards to the two plugins I've been having trouble with to no avail, it's on Bitwigs' end, and I've now encountered the error with some of my Plugin Alliance stuff. I've tried uninstalling Bitwig (and the plugins in question) and it's still happening.

Sent in a ticket with customer service here a few days ago, I'm hoping we can figure this one out.
