    Thought I'd post this here in case anyone is having any issues/concerns about Cubase blacklist.

    I recently bought Izotope Ozone and the result was I got a lot of Ozone dlls added to the blacklist in Cubase 9.5. I tried to remove them from the blacklist but kept getting a message indicating that this had failed. After going into a project, I noticed that Ozone was actually working okay in Cubase so, after investigating the issue, I found the following out:

    There are two dlls: one is iZotope*plug_name*.dll and one iZ*plug_name.dll.
    The first file is the valid plug-in's dll, the second is not.

    Both dlls are needed for the plugin to work - so you do not need to remove the second from the blacklist. Hope this helps!

    I just went through this exact confusing sequence. I tried to remove the blacklisted "duplicates" only to find that the plugins no longer worked. Very glad I backed the files up instead of deleting them!

    Glad you were able to get it sorted. I think the principle should be that if plugin manager doesn't allow the file to be removed from the blacklist, then it should be left alone - ie not removed from blacklist by alternative means, as long as the plugin still works.
