Vstscan provides an interface to audio plugin scanning so that this functionality may be presented in patchers and standalones. You can use vstscan to build menus of plugin names for use in patcher code.

As of Max 8, there are two scanning modes. The minimal/fast scanning method quickly gathers information about plug-ins based on files on disk without accessing the plug-ins, while complete/slow scanning performs a full scan of installed plug-ins, accessing the plug-ins to determine compatibility and features. The "slow" scan is only slow once, future runs perform a quick update to determine any changes to the last-scanned state of the operating system.
The argument can be used to specify the type of scanning:
- 0 or (default): perform the default complete/slow scan. If minimal/fast scanning was previously selected, enable complete/slow scanning and perform a full scan. If complete/slow scanning is already enabled, perform a quick update scan.
- 1 or : if any plug-ins were blacklisted by previous scans, reset the blacklist state of those plugins and perform an update scan.
- 2 or : completely reset the information gathered by previous scans and perform a full scan.
- 3 or : reset the scanning state and select minimal/fast scanning.
